Langberg Hiking Trail
Vrede, Free State
The Free State of South Africa is often thought of in terms of flat uninteresting farmland with fields of Maize and Sunflowers. As in most areas of the globe and certainly in South Africa, there are hidden Jewels to be discovered by the wandering traveller in the Free State. The Langberg trail is just such a jewel. Situated as it is about 200Km from Gauteng, it is also an easy drive for the hiker.
The Langberg Hiking Trail has many aspects that recommend it. The rock formations are spectacular and the way the trail has been laid out in places to form almost an obstacle course make it special. The accommodation is also both interesting and comfortable.
There are also opportunities for rock climbing, absieling, Bass and Trout fishing and two newly built cottages for hire. A recent addition to this list is horse trails. The owner can also provide meals at a very reasonable cost but these must be booked in advance.
Bookings for the hiking trail and facilities at Langberg can be made either through
