Hiking, Trails and Routes

ID #1143

Ebutsini 4x4 Route, Badplaas, Highveld, Mpumalanga.

Situated between the Swaziland border and Songimvelo Nature Reserve. 3 hours from Gauteng, this is exactly what city “slaves” are looking for. The trail takes you through an area of undiscovered scenic beauty and clear mountain streams, an area of almost pristine beauty. Along the way you can stop to interact with the local people in picturesque villages and kraals. The local communities are the sole beneficiaries of this development of which they are extremely proud. The trail is 30-km long, starting at the Ekunlindeni Tourism Centre 50-km from Badplaas. It takes 4-5 hours to complete, depending on the time spent at the picnic and viewpoints. It is not a 4x4 challenge, but is aimed at the leisure market. Vehicles will not be scratched or damaged if care is taken. The area is rich in history and interesting geological features.

Badplaas is on the R38 east of Carolina, which is on the R36 north of Ermelo, which is at the intersection of the N2 with the N11 and the N17. Travel southeast on the R541 to Badplaas from Machadodorp, which is on the N4. ABEbut
