Mooiplasie Hiking Trail

and Conference Centre

The hiking Trail is now closed as the area is now part of the Big 5 area of Dinokeng. However the venue is still available

Mooiplasie is situated at Boekenhoutskloof about 75Km north of Pretoria. This makes it one of the closest trails to the major urban centres of Johannesburg and Pretoria. There are two hiking trails, one of 7Km and the other 12Km. The longer one traverses the Amatakulu game reserve in part. The overnight facilities are superb and our club has used these for our end of year party on two occasions. The owner has all the sound equipment for Kareoke and sings for the group as well.

There is also a small conference facility ideal for small companies looking for a venue for sales conferences etc.

The trails can be considered fairly easy and suitable for family groups. The longer of the two trails passes through a game reserve and one should see quite a lot of wildlife and game including Giraffe.

As mentioned above, the camp facilities are excellent and ideal for club parties. The facilities include full ablutions, kitchen area including stoves, refrigerator, crockery, cutlery and glasses. In the complex there is a beautiful splash pool to cool off in.

The Mooiplasie camp is a beautiful setting for those wanting a weekend getaway with the family. The trails are not difficult but not spectacular as can be expected in the area that they are situated in. Mooiplasie is close to the Carousel Casino. The conference facilities are also ideal for those parties with guest lists that are larger than your home can handle.
