    Default Excellent place for a long weekend!

    My father and I, with two mates of mine, just stayed in a hiking/fishing lodge just outside of Machadodorp. 3.5h out of JHB and a truly awesome place to hike. recommend the "Oom Paul escarpment trail" which is about 15km's of beautiful escarpment environment.

    Called 5 Assegais, go to; http://www.fiveassegais.co.za/

    They have an assortment of accommodation options and we stayed in "God's Window" camp which is nestled in between some beautiful sandstone rocks & must have the best toilet in SA, as it stares out into the Komati valley and reading material is NOT required.

    Bear in mind that because it is a hiking camp, the bedrooms are bunk beds and setup in a dorm room, the kitchen is communal and shared between the two dorms. Fine if you have a party of 10, but required to be shared if you are only occupying one dorm.

    If that's not your cup of tea, then they have a **** lodge, as well as another hiking camp.

    No, I don't work there or am I friends with the owners, just like to recommend places when I am impressed by them.
