Bermanzi is situated between Machadodorp and Badplaas, in Mpumalanga, and is a two-hour drive from the bustling cities of Johannesburg and Pretoria. Offering affordable accommodation in Machadodorp and with some of the best hiking trails the province of Mpumalanga has to offer, Bermanzi is the ideal place for hiking groups and holidaying families alike.

Hiking Trails:

The hiking trails will take you through the gorges, the forests and the rock pools that are hidden away in the vast landscape that surrounds Bermanzi. During any of your hikes, you might be lucky enough to spot some of the local wildlife! This area is home to bushbuck, kudu, and mountain reedbuck. As for the vegetation, kiepersol and yellowwood trees make up the forests and provide shade for hikers.

The Bermanzi Two-Day Hiking Experience:

This is our most popular hiking trail simply because it is the ideal trail for people of all kinds. It has a low difficulty and is quite easy to complete.
