Mabote River Camp 4×4 Trail, Mokopane, Waterberg

Limpopo Mabote River CampMabote (Sotho for ‘small, strong river’) has four well-designed and marked trails that traverse sand, water, mud and rocks, and vary in difficulty. You could do all these in one day, but rather make a weekend of it.

On arrival, you’ll receive a detailed map and an update of the trail conditions (it can get tricky after summer rains, especially at the river crossing).

Don’t miss the waterfalls, rock art, fishing and canoeing opportunities that Mabote River Camp offers.

The way there: From Mokopane, take the R101 towards Mookgophong. After 12 km, turn right to Doorndraai Dam. After 40 km this road turns to dirt. Mobote is on the left after 6km.
