at Zebra River Lodge

Hiking to Gail's Cave


The hike to Gail’s Cave is a easy trail that starts and ends at the lodge and on average takes +/- 1.5 hrs.

Length: 4.2km

Duration: +/- 1.5 hours

Ascend: 50m



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. After enjoying the view at the cave walk back to the tractor and follow the markers alongside the ridge towards the sundowner point. To go back to the lodge, follow the markers down the little gorge back to the lodge ending on the airstrip below you.  Take care that you have enough light to come down the little gorge.  This walk will take you about 1 ½ hour – depending the time you want to sit and relax
