Today’s hectic lifestyle can play havoc with your head, but there is an easily accessible antidote to the stresses and strains, and it’s simply learning to reconnect with Nature. Whether you’re looking for adventure or solitude, nature or views, a walk up the Zwartkops Mountain is not to be missed.
Situated within a private game reserve in The Cradle of Humankind, the Glenburn Lodge nature walk follow two well-marked paths – they are self-guided and should average no more than two hours each. The walks meander along the Blaauwbank River, up the rocky back of the Zwartkops Mountain, offering a reward of breathtaking views from the side and top of the mountain. After your walk enjoy a light meal at our scenic and sun-soaked Glenpalms food court.
A passion for nature and mountains coupled with a commitment to service excellence lies at the heartbeat of what we do, ensuring you get the ultimate walking experience. We pride ourselves on being flexible, competent, attentive and enthusiastic and we respect nature and never skimp on safety.
