While some of us need our weekends away to relax with a glass of wine in hand on the deck of a beautiful tent, there are those who are will gladly wake up at 6 am to keep fit. We have two trails at AfriCamps Klein Karoo which will give you the beautiful backdrop of nature while you run through a field of succulents and pass by buck lazily grazing on the property or use the deck to create your perfect yogi space.
Named after the dam on the property, the Kaaimans Trail is one for the whole family. Whether it’s an evening stroll that you are after, your morning jog or a quick mountain bike fix, you will get it all from this quaint trail.
This trail starts at Tent 5 and is approximately 700m. Perfect for taking young children on a nature walk. Use it as the perfect time to teach them about the Karoo plants and animals, as they double up on exercise and exploring.
The rest of the family can use this trail as a substitute for their gym time. Add in some of these workouts, Trail Fit: Full Body, No Equipment Necessary, Outdoor Workouts, to ensure you get your full exercise experience.
The Springbuck trail is our more advanced trail that covers the whole farm. This one is for the more advanced mountain bikers who want to see and explore the farm. Set off on through the rocky land as you pass the breeding grounds for the springbuck to find out just how this trail got its’ name. The Springbuck Trail is about 6.5KM, ask Esti-Mari for more details on the exact route.
Yoga on the deck
Take your home or studio practice to the next level and take your yoga mat on holiday with you. Imagine waking up to the calming sounds of the Karoo and working through a few sun salutations on the deck at sunrise. Get one of your travel mates to snap a picture for that ultimate Instagram yogi experience.
