    Default Swartberg kruin

    Good day fellow adventurers

    I would like to know if any one have done the Swartberg kruin trail recently. If so how is the terrain, is it doable for a rookie in a Jimny, is there a overnight hut on the trail, where would one get a permit. Basically... Im going to visit a friend in the beginning of May in Prins Albert and i want to make a road trip out of it.

    Best to check with Cape Nature in Oudtshoorn.

    It's closed, sorry. There were massive wash away's which are simply not repairable (until we take things a step further ...)
    It was a fantastic route, not very technical or difficult but the veiws were just something else.

    Maybe we South Capers should offer to make do-able for Cape Nature and make it available again, even if it has to guided.

    I have contacted them, admit a while ago (I was still in Moz) I think now is the time. I will get hold of them in the next week or two, let's see
