We haven’t been hiking for ages. Recently this was remedied going on a hike at Hennops River. The 5km Zebra trail was perfect for our children aged 7 & 10. Entering the hike I chose the suspension bridge after Cliff crossed on the cable car over the strongly flowing Hennops river, with the children. At the end of the circular route I put fear aside and did the cable car, which was not as nerve wrecking as imagined.
Before leaving home we downloaded the Geocaching app and I quickly assembled a pack of goodies in case we found a cache to swap. Unfortunately there were no Geocaches on the hike route. Maybe next time I will start a new one for future visitors.
The hike begins with a short relatively steep section but it was not overly strenuous. After an hour we stopped in a patch of shade to enjoy some snacks. We did see zebra and wildebeest but our children’s jabbering sent them running. In total the hike took 2 hours. This is one which I will be more than happy to do again. I would also like to do the shorter 2.5 km hike as apparently there are caves on that route.
NOTE : As of Feb 2018 the entrance fee was R70 per adult and R40 per child
