About Mthimkhulu Wilderness Trail

Accommodation is simple, quaint and comfortable, this rondavel option is great for friends travelling together. It offers two single beds. The bathroom is located separate from the room. Adding to the natural ambiance, we make use of kerosene lamps at Mthimkhulu Wilderness Trails, as there is no electricity. Drinking water is provided, as well as coffee and tea. However, if you prefer something a little stronger for your sundowner, you may bring your own alcoholic beverage. When it comes to clothing, think comfort and durability. Neutral colours such as khaki, brown, beige and grey are the best. Remember, you will be spending most of your time walking through the bush so you don't want to scare off any animals wearing bright colours.
