Kranskop hiking trail, Dordrecht, Eastern Cape

Kranskop Hiking Trail, Dordrecht, Eastern Cape

The fairly easy Kranskop Hiking Trial on the Gelegenfontein farm in Dordrecht takes you 10km to the summit of Kranskop with awesome vistas of the countryside below. The peak of Kranskop is surrounded by 20m high cliffs which can be scaled by means of a chain anchored to the top and footholds cut in the rockface. The summit is a large plateau with circular craters.

You can take the option of walking to the top and being collected by the owners of the farm (Frans & Petro Slabbert) or you can sleep over in a large cave near the summit and be collected or just walk back.

You can also base yourself at the Goedehoop farmhouse (where accommodation is provided) and take time to explore the rugged countryside. Other attractions are swimming, birding, flora and horseback riding.

Goedehoop farmhouse is an old homestead which can accommodate a maximum of 12 persons. Facilities provided : beds, chairs, hot and cold water, stove, refrigerator, lamps, candles and bedding. Servicing for the accommodation and meals on request, as well as farm produce during season.
