Hiking the Gail's Cave Loop trail


The hike to Gail’s Cave and the loop back is an easy trail that starts and ends at the lodge and on average takes +/- 2.5 hrs, it is an extension to the Gail’s Cave Trail if you want to hike a little bit more and take a different way back.

Length: 6.3km

Duration: +/- 2.5 hours

Ascend: 110m



To start the walk, leave the lodge towards the airstrip, on the left side of the first yellow airbag follow the car tracks down to the Zebra River.  Cross the dry river bed and immediately you get to the other bank there is a marker on to your left.  Follow the car track walking slightly uphill but still easy walking. You will pass the little blue tractor on your way to Gail’s Cave. Either you turn left (see markers) or proceed towards the cave you will be able to spot in front of you, a little to the left-hand side. Enjoy the view at the cave and later go back to track and turn left. After a while you will arrive at a fence, turn right and follow the markers, the trail runs roughly parallel to the fence for a wile. After crossing a riverbed your have to turn right in direction to the lodge, just follow the markers. At the end you will come back to the trail you came from the airstrip.  This walk will take you about 2 ½ hour – depending the time you want to sit and relax.
