This is a must do while in Kruger ! Our guides kennet and Moses were full of knowledge and have the best bush eyes for spotting ! We saw lots of rhinos, giraffes, elephants, zebras and much more while walking. We also saw bushmans paintings...More

An unforgettable experience! Exceeded our expectations! Everything was perfect - food, lodging, ablutions and of course, sightings were unbelievable! A waterhole just outside our camp with sightings of all animals, and loud animal sounds at night! Excellent rangers who risk their lives to show us...More

The trail is exactly what they sell: an experience within the bush. You don't feel a plain and simple spectator, but a member of the rich environment. The facilities are all that you can expect: two beds, a couple of clean bathrooms and a delicious...More

Exceeded all expectations! Camp and hut was very clean, as were the fully functional western toilets. Showers had hot water. Food was delicious and plentiful. But the best part was the watering hole yards away from the fence! Animals constantly there through the day and...More

Have done 4 of these trails now, and this one seems least well subscribed... no idea why, because it's great! Same formula: 3 nights, 2 days of hiking. About 30mins west of Berg en Dal, this exclusive camp is located under large trees and overlooks...More

Having done most of the Wilderness Trails in the park, I was expecting more of the same. But I was positively surprised. The setting next to the waterhole provides for day- (and night) long interest, with elephant, rhino and buffalo being regular visitors. The lion...More

Wolhuter trail is one of my best experience ever! Everything was perfect. The rangers pick you up at 3pm at berg en Dale. 20km later you arrive at Wolhuter camp. Days begins between 4:30 and 6:00 with a first walk. Then coming back for rest...More

We drove all the trails we could in the Kruger and ended up spotting 4 of the Big 5 animals that live in the Kruger.

Without a doubt, this was the highlight of our 2 1/2 week trip to South Africa. Our rangers, Moses and Delphine, were friendly and knowledgeable. We were fortunate to only have 4 people in our group. What a pleasure to feel so close to the...More

I would recommend everybody visiting Kruger to take this (or one of the other) wilderness trails. It was an experience of a lifetime for me. With a group of 8 participants plus 2 guides we spent two superb days and three nights in the bush....More

No, at this trail it is a fixed three day stay. One day walking trails are not available at Wolhuter, but day/morning walks are available from Bergendal rest camp.

Possibly. Not aware of any fatalities though. We had a guide let off a warning shot at an ellie that got annoyed with us - that was scary! But all survived. The guides are sharp as pins! I'd be more worried about snakes... More
