Thabaphaswa Mountain Sanctuary

“Thabaphaswa”, in the local dialect, means “the mountain of the black and white bull” – a well-known landmark to the inhabitants and tribes in the area. It describes the coloured patterns of the indigenous Nguni cattle. The Thabaphaswa mountain towers over the adjacent hills.

The network of hiking, mountain biking and 4 X 4 trails, offers the ideal opportunity for nature lovers to discover the variety of game, bird and plant life of the area. The beautiful scenery are complemented by the design of the overnight camps which are camouflaged between the big boulders on the farm which blend into the mountain landscape.

How to tie your shoelaces

The significance of lacing on hiking boots is often underestimated. Many individuals simply tighten the laces, tie them in a double knot, and begin their hike.
Nevertheless, there are several widely used techniques for lacing boots that can ensure a comfortable and secure fit for your feet throughout long periods of
walking while also reducing the risk of blisters and other injuries.
