In preparation for our Kili trip at the end of August, we did a two day hike a couple of weeks ago in Magoebaskloof. It is a fairly well renowned hike spot about four hour north of Pretoria.
The following photos are a quick log of our trip, it was a stunning place, as Zett described it “the kind of place fairies live”. Which is strangely fitting, we are a fair way latitudely north but at 1600 metres high so it’s kind of like a rain forest but more high country. Whatever the reason the end result is a stunning place to spend a couple of days.
As always Max was a star, didn’t make a peep (other than motivational babbling and slapping for the pack horse.. ME) for the 5 hours a day for 2 days in the “Max Pack”. Must admit the trail wasn’t the flattest I’ve ever hiked, couple that with 10.5kg of Max’s tightly packed atoms and all his food my shoulders and quads certainly knew they had been working.
The huts we stayed at each night were quite comfy, the first night we had the place to ourselves and no power but the second night we shared the hut with some interesting young people, a couple of the fellas had just returned from a trip to South America so we had plenty of stories to swap over a few rewarding glasses of red.
