About Doringkloof 4x4 trails

Here, in the heart of the Baviaanskloof, we offer five interesting 4x4 routes in the spectacular Baviaanskloof and Kouga Mountains.

The longest trail, about 78 kilometers in length and has a grading of 2, winds its way from the Baviaanskloof valley right up the Kouga mountain range, past Graskop to the summit and then down to Kareedouw in the Langkloof.

En route one will see a rich variety of vegetation including cycads that are hundreds of years old. Much of the scenery is simply breath-taking.

Although not a particularly difficult 4x4 trail, some parts are sufficiently demanding to make it interesting.
