Lebombo Hiking Trail
You carry a day-pack, hike 12 to 15 km per day and overnight in unfenced rustic bush-camps.

The Lebombo hiking trail offers an unforgettable 3 night 4 day hiking adventure through a pristine wilderness area.
Trails are led by an experienced guide and armed game ranger equipped with hand-held radio communication and a GPS. Trailists, in groups of no more than 8, hike about 12 to 15 km per day and overnight en-route, camping wild in rustic unfenced bush-camps.

Trailists depart on foot from the meeting point at the Elephant Release Boma (see details below) for Marula, the first night's camp, a distance of around 4 to 5 km.
The trail then crosses the Machampane river and traverses the Lebombo plateau before reaching Ndlovu, the second night's camp in the riverine forest of the Palarangala river valley. (Should you wish to extend the trail to 4 nights then we spend two nights at this camp and walk-out on a circular route exploring the surrounding bushveld)
The route then follows the course of the Palarangala river to a large pool at its confluence with the Machampane river before meandering through the Mopane treed sandveld to Pumbe, the last night's campsite.
Being located in an area that has been re-stocked with game over the past few years in a joint programme with Kruger National Park, trailists have every prospect of encountering a wide array of wildlife.
Each night offers the prospect of its own special experience, from sunset over the Lebombos, to the call of a fish eagle in the riverine forest, to the trumpeting of elephant amongst the Mopane or the call of lion as they prowl the bush at night.
The trail is fairly rugged and therefore a reasonable level of fitness is essential.

Campsites are unfenced and located in the bush.
Basic ablution facilities (bush shower and short-drop toilet) are available,
Water for cooking and washing as well as firewood is provided.
Two person dome tents with camping mattresses are supplied.
Basic cooking utensils, cutlery and crockery are provided

1 litre of drinking water per person per day is supplied. We recommend that trailists have water purification tablets or an additional supply of water to meet their individual needs. Trail participants need to cater for their own beverage requirements bearing in mind safety considerations and import duty regulations (see general information sheet). Moçambique beer and cooldrinks are available for purchase at the Giriyondo border post.
