Many of our visitors who enjoy a retreat or time out at Temenos have requested that we include an accompanied walk to the Waterfalls on the Boesmanskloof Hiking trail as they do not wish to hike alone.
We are now happy to inform such guests that one of our staff members is more than happy to include this wonderful experience as part of your stay at Temenos. This stunning hike along the Boesmanskloof Trail winds its way through the Riviersonderend Mountains that separate the two villages, passing the 750m (2,461ft) high point of Uitsigpunt and leading you to your destination via a series of waterfalls and pools that are great for swimming.
En route you will see plenty of fynbos and protea and Erica species. On the mammal front, keep your eyes peeled for baboons, klipspringers, common duikers and perhaps a caracal, while birds-wise there should be malachite sunbirds and Cape sugarbirds, black and booted eagles and jackal buzzards.
Please note that in order to join the hike you need to be reasonably fit.
Our Hike Weekend Package includes breakfast on Saturday morning, transport to the trail, a light picnic lunch at the Waterfalls, a 2 course dinner on Friday and Saturday night and breakfast on Sunday, as well as your permit. You also have the option of enjoying a FREE Sunday night should you wish to linger in the country air.
