2016 - Pafuri Camp, Kruger National Park - Trip Report
Pafuri Camp Group
Myburgh’s Ravine - 28 Feb 2015

Leader: Geoffrey Barton

Report by: Patty Colborne


Nine of us, including a nine year old with his visiting parents, started the hike at 13:00 promptly.


It is a steep pull uphill and although the day was hot, we were kept cool in shade of the indigenous forest. At this time of the year the ground is sandy and very dry, and there was only a little trickle of water now and then, the stream having virtually dried up. The path follows the river and involves some boulder hopping.


Where the ravine gets narrower, we did see a few red disas on the sides of the cliffs, but they were mainly past their prime. There are lots of large leafy ferns in the shady areas. We also admired the many huge trees, imagining what Hout Bay could have looked like long ago.


We continued to the waterfall where we stopped for tea, although the youngest member of the party was more interested in discovering what lay up and beyond that.

We returned the same way, satisfied at having seen a beautiful part of Hout Bay.

Thanks to Geoff for an enjoyable hike.

Tips for hike reports
Some people claim they are not good at writing, so here are some tips for things to include:
• Area of the hike, date, name of leader, approx. group size
• Something about the weather
• Anything that stood out for you
• Mostly: write about what YOU found enjoyable or interesting, e.g. (medicinal) plants, environment, views, geology, insects, an interesting talk you had with someone
• You don’t have to try and include everything
• If you have a sense of humour, use it!
• Please include some photos if you can!!
• For day hikes, 10-15 lines will do!
