Bushcamp & Hiking
Krugerskop-Kloof Bushcamp & Hiking is an unspoiled natural Campsite situated in the Krugerskop-Kloof on private property, stretching inside the Baviaanskloof Nature Reserve | Eastern Entrance/Gate. A casual hiking trail follows the flow of the Krugerskop-Kloof mountain stream under a densely covered canopy of Yellowwood, Wild Fig, Forest Nuxia, and Milkwood. Enjoy the tranquil and peaceful surroundings of this magnificent bird and animal life. Birds such as the well-known Knysna Loerie and the delightful White-Crested Eagle can be viewed.
