dear all, sorry it took us a while to reply.

here is the absurd map that we got from the park reception http://picpaste.com/faulty_maps_rhebok_trail.jpg i hope the link works and i apologize for the bad quality. the picture was taken using an old mobile phone. on that map the rhebok trail seems to be only on the northern side of the road which cuts across the park. according to the map one must never cross the road, but stay on one side only. also, if one were to follow this map the trail even splits and needs to be walked back a bit on the start of the second day. (the lady at reception even marked the alleged hut with a cross using a pen - on the wrong site of the road and several kilometers away from where the hut actually is). to sum it up: that map is entirely ridiculous and potentially dangerous.

thank you for all your comments and responses!

Not sure why you got that map, that's the day hikes map - no wonder you were confused. Well done for getting the trail done with just that!

Check Son Godin's post above for images of the proper Rhebok map

dear josh,

probably it was the day hikers map. no idea though why they inserted the rhebok trail in that (and then in a totally wrong way) and gave it to us.

thanks again to the moderator for letting san parks know about it.

cheers
