Bloukrans Hut - Keurbos (3Day 2Night)

Garden Route

Activity Description

The Tsitsikamma Trail is a southern Cape hiking paradise, journeying through extensive indigenous afromontane forest and mountain fynbos. This slightly shorter variation of the full 6 Day hike lets us enjoy just enough of the enchanted mountain landscape.

The Bloukrans hut is situated on the verge of a cliff and offers incredible views of the river gorges below and Peak Formosa and the Tsitsikamma Mountains to the north. A couple of hundred metres beneath the balcony a coca-cola coloured waterfall tumbles away. The hut can be reached via the access route from the old Blaaukranz forest station, or, for a long hike option can be reached from the Natures valley camp 17.7 Km away.

The following day takes one deep into the Tsitsikamma Mountains and forest. This is a wetter and more
remote world where a true sense of isolation begins to take hold. The trail weaves through a selection of fynbos over the ridges and enchanted patches of indigenous forest as the trail begins its eastward course through the mountains. The crossing of the Bloukrans River at Waterwitelsgat is always exciting and provides a
wonderful swimming and resting place. The rest of the day follows predominantly flat terrain through
flower-rich fynbos and relic forest. Shortly before reaching Keurbos hut there are rockpools resembling
natural Jacuzzis at the twintubs. The hut is situated in the wetter Keurbos forest.

The hike then exits towards the Lottering plantation office on a winding road between the Elandskop and Grenadier’s Cap peak 11,5km away.

Customer Reviews

We spent two nights and 3 days on the trail. The huts and boma area had been newly renovated and were clean and inviting. We had our food and clothes portered and this was done efficiently and with a smile. The trail was well marked and beautiful. Our overall experience was most enjoyable. Thank you MYO we will be back. - Linda

Our hike from Nature's Valley to Bloukrans Hut to Keurbos was fantastic. The best part was that you can book only a few days, from and to any point, and you have the portage option which makes it so convenient especially with food being delivered to each hut. The service by the staff at MTO was outstanding, and the huts were incredible. We were definitely do the hike again. - Marindi
