The Olifants River Back-Pack Trail starts from Olifants Camp. The trail stretches over 4 days and 3 nights and covers approximately 42 km. It is advisable (but not necessary to book accommodation at Olifants or Letaba camps prior to and after completion of the trail. Hikers can leave their cars at Olifants Camp in a special parking area demarcated for this purpose.

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.
