Lindenau Hiking Trail
Located on a farm called Lindenau, found between Nelspruit and nGodwana, lies the Lindenau Hiking trail. Formerly known as the Elandsvallei Trail, hikers travel all along the new route found on the 1800 hectare farmland. The starting part of the Hiking trail is a converted schoolhouse that is known as ‘Old Plaas Skooltjie’. Previously, hikers would live in a thatched stone building that was fully equipped, but the trail was changed and now guests make a return trip and stay in the Old School House on the second night. The Farm that the trail is laid out on, is lush and green with an abundance of water from the Elands River. There are many mountains streams along the road, carving through the beautiful landscape.
Some of the amazing highlights you can experience while on the trail include the Sugar Loaf Mountains, stunning kloofs and gorges, and an insane 300 species of birds that can be encountered. On the second day, hikers pass old gold mine sites and the ruins of an old South African War Camp. Otters also call the lands home
