GM Info

In the following you will find some useful general info regarding our hikes. But please feel free to send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or use our feedback from if you have any questions. We are happy to assist.

For all our hikes and activities the protection of nature and the environment is one of our core concerns.

We leave nothing behind and we do not take anything away.

Time Frame

All our one-day activities start early, usually before daybreak. This is to enable us to complete the ascent or the hike to the training grounds before the biggest heat sets in. Also, the earlier we are in the bush, the bigger the chance to see some wildlife.
