The Lonely Bull Trail is a primitive back packing trail which starts from Shimuwini Camp and is conducted in the large wilderness area between the Letaba low water bridge and the Mingerhout dam along the Letaba River.

The trail stretches over 4 days and three nights. This trail allows its participants to spend three nights in this wilderness area without having the constraints of having to get to the next point or of following a prescribed route. The trail allows the trail leader to decide when & where to camp and how far & which route to follow. The activity will be conducted by two experienced Trails Rangers and the maximum number of participants will be kept to eight people per trail with a minimum of 4 people.

Guests are expected to provide their own camping equipment and food for the duration of the trail, no glass items. It is strongly advised that hikers do not carry more than a quarter of their body weight. There are no overnight huts on this trail. As the safety of hikers is of major importance, all participants have to bring tents and sleep in them every night while they are walking the trail. Participants will be responsible for setting up their own tents and for cooking their own food. No rubbish bins or toilets are provided at any of the overnight stops and the trail operates on a strictly “take it in, take it out” basis and strictly adheres to a “no trace camping” ethic. Please only use biodegradable products – soaps and detergents – on the trail. Water will be collected along the way from natural sources.

The group will meet at Shimuwini camp at 13h00 on the day of departure in order to leave the camp by 14h00. They will then be transported, using an open vehicle with a trailer, and dropped off at a predetermined drop off point (according to a rotational usage schedule). The group will then be collected at a predetermined collection point at 10h00 on the last day and transported back to  Shimuwini Camp.
