Kuthaba Bush Camp and Trails

Near Nylstroom, Limpopo Province

The Kuthaba Hiking Trails are now permanently closed

It never ceases to amaze me the secrets the Waterberg Mountains have to offer to those intrepid explorers that have the time and perseverance to explore the lesser bye ways. Kuthaba is situated just 16Km outside Nylstroom along the Driefontein road. The owners have worked hard to see that their guests have a comfortable and relaxing stay.


The Accommodation

The owners have gone to great lengths to make sure of the comfort of the guests. There is a lovely bar area and the kitchen area is well equipped with fridges and adequate work area to prepare meals to feed everyone that the camp can accommodate. There are ten bungalows sleeping a total of 26 people and additional accommodation is available in the restored farmhouse. A secluded camping area will also soon be available.


The Trails

The 12Km circular route starts from the camp and winds its way along a river bank for some distance.


Even during the dry season there is plenty of water around. The flora in the area is diverse and beautiful.


The trail undulates across mountains, through dense bosveld and by gurgling streams.


The variety of vegetation is something that makes Kuthaba very special.


There are waterfalls to be seen and shady trees to shelter under from the midday heat (and climb if you feel like it).


On the final leg of the trail back to the camp the trail passes some beautiful specimens of trees.

The final part of the day is spent around the camp fire with thoughts of a lovely day.


The second day's hike is a short walk that traverses the mountainous area behind the camp. It offers beautiful views across the area walked the previous day.


The main focal point of the second day trail is the chain ladder. For those who have a fear of heights there is an alternative route.


The Chain Ladder



Kuthaba is certainly worth a visit. The place is ideal to take the whole family to even if some members of your party may not be hikers and may like some home comforts. The area is beautiful and the hiking relatively easy. Kuthaba is also ideal for informal functions, team building and product launches. Catering can be provided by prior arrangement.
