This one is on my list! (Along with the Klipspringer in Augrabies and the planned walks in Richtersveld)

I will get some pictures of the trail then everybody will get a better idea of the setup.

It surely should be on the 'To do list' of nature lovers visiting the KTP. The experience cannot be put into words.

So far so good. Mrs gave it the nod.

Now for some leave :hmz: Oh yes, I have just returned to work.

Hi KG, I think we need to name you the Kgalagadi Guru angel!
Is the !Xerry trail a backpack trail?
Sounds like an awesome experience.
Thanks for all the input
J

I can just imagine the red glow when Guru reads that - angel?

Musketeer, perhaps,
Mr efficient certainly,
but angel, LMHO!

My dad & I did the trail last week (15 - 17 Sept) with Jan & Melissa and can highly recommend it! It really really was an amazing experience, and we definitely want to do it again. Thanks Jan & Melissa, it was wonderful! :D

Ok....now im getting worried why people think im a 'Angel' :redface:

The !Xerry trail is a self -catering, guided hiking trail situated in the Nossob section of the park. there is a minimum of 2 and maximum of 8 participants.

Participants are transported from Nossob to the base camp, from where they will embark on morning and afternoon walks in the company of profesional and experienced guides.

The trail departs every Wednesday at 12h00, and return to Nossob on Friday 12h00. the base camp has a braai and preperation area, a shower and a long drop and is enclosed with three thorns in the traditional fasion. participants are responsible for their own tents, bedding, food and water.

Tents can be hired from the trail.

I will try and get some pics to post tomorrow then I will post them ASAP.

Heste,

Welcome to the forum, you will have a great time here since you are also in the hospitality indutry.

It was fun having your dad and yourself on the trail, hope to see you again soon, maybe when it is a bit cooler?

Do you realise what a big compliment it is? I'll tell you why you were taken for an angel: Your enthusiasm, your promtness to help, your readiness for answering all our questions, your kindess and above all your sense of humour :thumbs_up: All angel characteristics :whistle:
