On a Saturday morning in July, we hiked the 5 km trail. It was a challenging but beautiful effort. The trail is well indicated and at several points the views are great. Good training for the old bones.

We went on the 5k hike with kids aged 12 and 8. It was magnificent, not too challenging but definitely more technical than others we tried. The area is beautiful beyond imagination, and so is the view from the top (about 300 hight meters).

We have regularly been visiting Rustig over the last 3 years and were disappointed to see the deterioration in the quality of the service we received. They have drastically cut their staff compliment and as a result the braais are not cleaned, bins not emptied,...More

The Karee hiking trail at Rustig farm is not for the faint hearted, and especially not in summer. Technically speaking, there are three different ways in which you could tackle the hike. You could do 6km and then take the 2km Chicken Run route back...More

For the starting hiker this is a great place not too far from Joburg, and not too challenging. Can't speak for the accommodation or food at Rustig, but the area is great, and you can enjoy the pool after a day out hiking
