Eingedi Retreat, in the beautiful Eastern Free State, offers the hiker a two-day, base camp trail. Day 1 covers a distance of 11km on the Eland Trail, whilst the 6km Zebra Trail can be done on Day 2.
Both trails traverse a 530Ha game farm and take the hiker up and down hills and ladders, across game filled savannahs with numerous game and 195 bird species, and through interesting sandstone rock formations with spectacular views in all directions. Additional features include old British war forts, ruined Basotho huts and villages to explore.
Eingedi Retreat is designed for a quick week-end getaway, situated at the foothills of the Maluti Mountains.
