Tugam Safari Network 4×4 Trails, Pongola, KwaZulu-Natal

Kwazulu-Natal Tugam Safari NetworkTugam 4×4 Safaris is on the slopes of the Magudu Hills. The safari network consists of more than 75 km of off-road tracks with four distinct trails – Breakfast Plains, Waterhole Watch, River View and the Tugam Sundowner Trail.

These are all done at certain times of the day to enhance your chance of spotting game. Sightings of impala, giraffe, wildebeest, zebra and even rhino are common. While most of these are gentle dirt tracks, the Sundowner Trail has quite a steep ascent over rocks to get to the stunning Lookout Point at the top of the mountain.

The way there: Take the N2 south from Piet Retief and turn right at Pongola onto the R66. Then turn right onto the R69. Tugam Game Farm will be on your right.
