Wolhuter wilderness trail to Nelspruit

Unread post by Revco13 » Wed Mar 15, 2017 3:28 am

Hi. I'm coming to KNP (&SA) for the first time in May! We are spending 10 days in the park, finishing with the Wolhuter trail as the highlight.

A few days after, we are flying home from Cape town. My questions are -1) what time do the trails end? I've read Apoximatly 9 am in some other spots on the forum. 2) is it feasible to finish the trail, make it back to Nelspruit to get the 1:15 flight to Capetown? 3) if not, what recommendations do you have for the the last day/night in the area? Spend another night in Berg, get a hotel in Nelispruit, drive to X for the afternoon and evening?
From everything I've read the trail will be a real high light - so what to do after that? Thanks.

Hi Revco and a very warm welcome. :gflower:

The trails do end at about 9am. If the guides know that you have a flight to catch, they would certainly take that into consideration. The Wolhuter trail huts are fairly close to Berg n Dal.

You should be able to make it unless there is a problem on the road between Malelane and Nelspruit. My own choice would be another night at Berg n Dal though. It will give you peace of mind and allow to to savor each and every moment without the worry of catching flights.

I really do wish you a wonderful trail experience. In my mind, they are the best. :thumbs_up:

I think that is very sound advice.
No need to rush things, best to slow it all down.
Thanks!

Hi Revco, I agree with MM, I would opt to stay an extra night in the Park before heading back. At least you wont have the added "pressure" to rush to get back to Nelspruit if you spend an extra night. Enjoy the walking safari bushcamp!
