EAGLE COVE

The Eagle Cove Hiking Trails offer a haven of peace for hikers and is situated on the Northern slopes of the picturesque surroundings in the Magaliesberg Mountain range, app 30 km south of Rustenburg.

The trails start on the northern slopes of the bush veld. Twisting and turning up the slopes, through breathtaking kloofs to the crest of the mountains. The mountain is home to many different plants and animals, which is unique only to this mountain. It is hard to believe that this geological spectacular and unspoilt area is only one and a half hours drive from Johannesburg and some 100 km from Pretoria.

The Eagle Cove Camp is well organized and equipped with the following: our three bedrooms accommodate groups of 4, 6 and 10 hikers. Minimum 6 hikers, unless there are other hikers already booked the same period. Max 20 hikers. All rooms have bunk beds with mattresses. There is a neat, modern ablution block with separate ladies and gents facilities. Electricity.

There are two different / separate braai areas: a lapa with an undercover braai area, washing up facilities and electricity. Then there is another open braai area where one can enjoy a braai under the stars.

ROUTE 1: 4 km - The shortest of the three trails. The route covers the escarpment and the top of Hammerkop Kloof. It will take the average hiker +- two hours to complete.

ROUTE 2: 6 km - This is a beautiful trail but more recommended for the more experienced and fit hiker. This route requires a down climb to the Hammerkop Kloof. A steep hill amongst indigenous shrubs, trees and a lazy stream accompany you up a steep trail the takes you back to the top of the hill. In the rainy season hikers are greeted with beautiful waterfalls and flora.

ROUTE 3: 9 km - The route twists and turns up the crest of the Magaliesberg Mountain. Once you have reached the top, you suddenly experience a feeling of "being on top of the world". Scenic panoramic views await you while catching your breath. The trail, back to camp, meanders through indigenous vegetation and interesting rock formations. This is a good average hike for real nature lovers.
