The New "High Five" Trail (formerly known as the Num-num trail)

The High Five Hiking Trail basically is what used to be the well known Num-num trail, just with a few alterations to make it more flexible and even more enjoyable.

High Five is a multi day backpack hiking trail situated on the scenic Drakensberg Escarpment of Mpumalanga, a mere 2.5hours drive from Gauteng. Hikers hike from one camp to the other carrying backpacks with everything they need, from clothes to food & drinks etc.

The High Five trails consists of many different stretches of hiking trails which can all be linked in different ways to create hiking options of between 3 and 7 days. A trails network of almost one hundred kilometers on four agacent properties allows for a great variety of hiking options with a huge diversity in topography, fauna and flaura! Now hikers can "build" their own trail itinerary to suit their needs according to time availability, fitness levels etc.
