Boesmanskloof Trail

Walking gently in a wide ravine, flowers all around you, birds singing and a big blackwater pool to cool down. A Rejuvenating experience!

Boesmanskloof is a one-way hike. Either from Die Galg or from Greyton, depends on which side of the mountain you call home. We hiked to Greyton and back. Boesmanskloof literally means “bush man’s ravine”. The trail is 14km long. I’d grade it as a moderate hike.

Approximately half way through a unique waterfall with a circular plunge pool arises, Oakes Falls. This  is where I photographed the pink disa in Desember. Lots of other fynbos plants can be spotted including the little turkey. We also found several southern rock agamas with their blue scaled heads and tendency to do “push ups” when you stare to long!

      1. Hey Jacques, I really like your blog – keep at it. Have you read any of Stephen Buhner’s work? if you are interested in the experiential side of nature / going deeply into nature, then you might find him interesting

      2. No, I haven’t heard of Stephen. I’ve read your article about plant intelligence. It’s quite interesting and makes sense. The study of living things interests me, hence my love for nature. Favourite school subjects are Biology, Chemistry and Physics. I’m aspiring to become a doctor.
