Experiencing the KingsRiver Kloof

Ever been on a trail with no definite path, where you have to make route decisions and face their consequences? At times your safety rests on a knife edge. Mother nature is up close and personal. It’s only you and a trusted friend, together you need to face whatever reveals itself around the next bend and overcome the obstacles together. 

That’s what you get on the KingsRiver “Trail”!

This seldom ventured trail winds through the KingsRiver Kloof near the sleepy village of McGregor. For the adventurous – it’s an extremely enjoyable 5km trail.

It involves lots of river crosses, easy rock climbing sections and path making. On the trail we saw a pair of klipspringers, the aloe aloe comptonii in bloom and a massive ancient San cave.

The swim near the end is always a highlight! 

You can also view an older video I made of the KingsRiver Trail on youtube. I made it for my 16’th birthday.

Experiences such as this one will remain locked up in one’s memories and they’ll be cherished till old age. That is why it’s so important to life a full and exciting life!
