Leopard Trail in the media
In February just before lock down Justin Fox, the editor of Getaway Magazine, paid us a visit at Go Baviaans. He joined hikers at the first night’s camp for a braai, came with us to check Leopard cameras, and went for a walk to the Cedar Falls. He shares his story in the latest Getaway edition.
When another of the national outdoor adventure magazines features the Leopard Trail, we know we are getting noticed by the SA hiking community. Another great article and guide to the trail in the Go Hiking 2020 guide.
Along with some really great photo’s, Hiking South Africa had some very cool things to say about the Leopard Trail. We are committed to making this one of the top multi day slack packing hikes in SA, and it feels great when others are say we are getting it right.
When an experienced hiking blog states this about the Leopard Trail, it feels great! “You are going to find it difficult to top this hike. It has everything you could possibly want in a hike and more. It’s a perfect starting hike for those wanting to ease from slackpacking into full-blown multi-day hiking. The rugged beauty of this part of the country is unsurpassed, and it certainly is both a challenge and an adventure.”
The Baviaans is a landscape that begs to be hiked and thankfully the Leopard Trail provides a 4 day route to indulge avid hikers and explorers.

On a very hot weekend in February Getaway Magazine editor Sonya Schoeman & photographer Teagan Cunniffe joined a group walking the Leopard Trail. The trail blew their minds, earning us a cover story.
