POSTPONEMENT of Day Hike at De Wildt Adventure Trails

Unfortunately, due to the persistent rain, it has now been decided to POSTPONE the day hike at De Wildt Adventure Trails yet again. It will now be held on 28thFebruary. We hope by then the sun will be shining again!
The good news is that it will not be limited to 20 people any more. It is a PRE-PAID hike though so you must confirm with Mark and pay before the date – see bank details below. Either WhatsApp him on 082 301 1235 or email
Here are all the details:

Date: Sunday 28 February

Venue: De Wildt Adventure Trails, Schietfontein

Time: 07:45 sharp (Allow over an hour – see directions below)

Cost: R80 for members and R100 for non-members.


There are two trails:

1. The Peglerae Trail which is 12.5 km and quite challenging but very scenic. You will need to be fit to hike this one.

2. The Kiepersol Trail is 4.6km and is perfect for a family outing – escape routes at 900m and 1.4km makes it perfect for little ones and senior hikers.

There are braai facilities which we will make use of after the hike.


R513 Yellow board no. 78E Farm Schietfontein Portion 19 JQ437 Schietfontein, 0251 

You will be able to access a map if you go onto their website. Please allow plenty of time as on Google maps it says it takes 1hr 10mins from Krugersdorp. It seems quite straightforward. From the N14, you follow the R511 past the dam. You then turn right on to the R513. (It is 74 km from Krugersdorp)
