Hiking Day Hippo Trails Walking Tour/Self Drive

Guests can self drive. Transport needs to be (pre)-arranged.

A very nice hike, probably close to 14 km round-trip (same way forward as return), which is preferably started in the morning. Due to the notable total changes in elevation the hike should not be underestimated. Recommended to plan as a day hike, the trained hiker will do this trail as a half-day trip.

All mentioned rates are applicable for bookings in 2019-2020 and can be subject to change. Rates can sometimes get cheaper when bookings are for bigger groups.
