The Klein Krakadouw Slackpacking trail is the easiest of the Cederberg Heritage Route walking trails. It is ideal for someone who wants a taste of walking in the Cederberg as its only 2 nights.

The Cederberg Heritage Route is the collective name for some community-based walking trails in the Cedarberg mountains. Ranging from between 3 and 6 days, these trails make this beautiful area accessible to walkers. Using charming community guest cottages in the Moravian Mission villages of Heuningvlei, Brugkraal and Wupperthal on the edge of the Cederberg Wilderness area, as well as Clanwilliam guesthouses.

The trails are fully inclusive. You are escorted by local community guides whilst your overnight luggage is taken to the next night’s stay.

The 2 night Klein Krakadouw Hiking Tour starts at lunchtime on Day 1 giving you time to get to the Cederberg and finishes after breakfast on Day 3. So that you have ample time to travel onto your next destination. It includes an easy 12km hike to the mission village of Heuningvlei on the first day. A longer, very scenic hike over Krakadouw Pass on the second day. There is also the option to spend an extra night and either hike up the Krakadouw peak, the highest mountain in the northern Cederberg, or a more relaxing circular walk which also visit some rock pools for swimming.

The Klein Krakadouw Trail is priced for 2, 4 or 6 people with the price decreasing with higher numbers. It is suitable for most of the year as it is a short trail, though you may like to avoid the high summer months of January to mid March.

Note: Unfortunately we don't sell this as a standalone product. But only in conjunction with other accommodation and touring.
