We packed a picnic, put on our walking shoes, Bryan grabbed his fishing rod and me, my camera and we were ready to go. There was a big storm forecast for the following two days, so it was pretty warm and the skies were clear. A perfect day to explore one of the trails available at Kamberg Nature Reserve.
We had heard that is was an easy 4km walk to The Roman Baths and with slight trepidation (due to the lack of walking we have done), we set off!
We parked our car just past the Trout Dams at the "No Entry" sign and the first part of the walk was very easy. We followed the jeep track across a couple of dry stream and up a slight incline past an old farmhouse, where the only thing left is a toilet seat. Then things got a bit tricky! The jeep track ended and we had been told to take the left-hand trail from there. After following the trail a short way, it promptly ended, so whilst we contemplated our next move, I took some photos of some of the views and wild flowers growing in Kamberg Nature Reserve (oh and Bryan took a couple of photos of me, the intrepid hiker!)
The Roman Baths alluded us this time on our hike in Kamberg Nature Reserve, but we will be back to search another time! This truly is a stunning part of The Drakensberg, and so peaceful and quiet. We didn't see another person all day!
I highly recommend visiting Kamberg Nature Reserve when staying at Kamberg Valley Hideaway. It is a short drive (12kms) away and a totally unspoilt part of the Drakensberg! The views are spectacular, and the bubbling, rushing river, just adds to the beauty!
We can't wait for our next foray!
