About Our Services
- The slack packing service is when we transport your luggage between camps. You therefore only have to carry a day pack on our hiking trails!
- The crates are 38cm x 58cm x 36cm high at the smallest point or 85 litres.
- You may supply a coolbox of similar size, or smaller, that we will transport for you at the same tariff.
All crates strictly to be ready by 8 am.
Only R50.00 per crate or coolbox per day!
The Num-num Trail hosts an annual trail running challenge and we also welcome trail runners throughout the year. We have specific routes for this activity. For safety’s sake, minimum of 4 runners please.
Each of our hiking camps is a unique, beautiful and comfortable experience. You will have to forget any romantic notions you might have as all facilities are shared.
All the camps have indoor and outdoor braai areas, kitchens equipped with basic cutlery, crockery and cooking utensils and hot water.
