Gifberg Camping and Hiking Trails


Close to the Northern Cape border, south of Vanrhynsdorp and the flower region of the Matzikamma, lie the Gifberg Mountains. They stand out from the surrounding plains, but only once you start driving up the Gifberg Pass, do you get a sense of the scenic beauty of these impressive crags. Over the top of the pass you will find the Gifberg Holiday Farm. It is here that we are planning our first camping trip.

Showing off the incredible rock formations and ancient rock art, there are four exciting trails to explore, from the shortest 2 km Pothole Trail, to the longest 20 km along the Gifberg River to the intersection with the Doring River. The magnificent Rock Art on this route is some of the most interesting and impressive you will see anywhere.

All meals and camping gear provided, a single fully equipped vehicle to take you there and experienced guide to show you the trails.

You only need to bring your sleeping bag and pillow, your personal hiking gear and day pack, clothes and personal items and your sense of fun and adventure.
