Olive Trail

ImgHiddenImgHiddenImgHiddenImgHiddenImgHiddenImgHiddenImgHiddenImgHiddenImgHiddenThis is a circular self-guided trail situated in the Naukluft Park. It takes about 4 to 5 hrs to complete.

It starts off with a climb to the top of a small plateau with a magnificent view, where you then climb down into a gorge, which you follow for most of the way. Then towards the end, after the chains, you join onto a rough 4X4 track that leads you back to the car park where you left your car.

Quiver trees as well as Euphorbia can be seen in the gorge. Love Birds, Mountain Zebra and Klipspringer are sometimes seen on the hike.

Terrain gets quite difficult once in the gorge, where you have to climb onto and over a few large rocks, and towards the end there is quite a tricky bit involving a chain. A beautiful but exciting hike nevertheless.

At least 2 litres of water each should be taken along, as well as good walking shoes and a hat. Please remember to report at the office before doing either of the hikes in the Naukluft Park as otherwise no one will know where you are.
