Tepelkop Hiking Trails
Slabberts, Near Bethlehem, Free State
I first visited Tepelkop about 10 years ago and remember not being very impressed with it. I remember an atrocious road leading up to a dark and damp base camp and a trail that was overgrown and not very inspiring.
Well, the good news for hiker is that that has all changed! A new owner took over the farm in 2003 and has spent a lot of money and time in changing things for the better. New accommodation and two revised trail routes go to make this one of the best weekend day route trails around.
Turn off R26 to Slabberts:S28 26.255 E28 11.782
Base Camp: S28 26.975 E28 04.054
Top of Tepelkop: S28 26.078 E28 04.726
A lovely weekend trail and suitable for anyone with some degree of fitness. The area can get very hot during summer and very cold during winter. The accommodation is above average, clean and well planned. The trails, when we did them in April 2006 were well marked and maintained.
