    Plan your next holiday with South Africa: Hiking Trails in and Around Pretoria and Johannesburg

    With this detailed guide, you can save valuable time when planning your hiking adventure in South Africa. For three years, the authors explored and recorded 837 kilometers (523 miles) of astonishing hiking trails and walks in amazing landscapes, encountering giraffes, zebras, and rhinos, magnificent valleys, and unique people and culture.

    Most trails can be completed in 4-6 hours as day trips from Pretoria and Johannesburg. The more than 120 trails in this guidebook have been grouped into the following geographic areas:

    • Pretoria and surroundings;

    • The Magaliesberg Mountain Range (northern and southern slopes); and

    • Johannesburg and surroundings.

    The book provides easy to understand custom-made hiking maps and trail descriptions. Users of the book also have access to a unique collection of GPS E-trails.

    Trails in the guidebook are classified either as a wildlife or nature hike/walk. A trail can be easy, moderately difficult or best suited for advanced hikers.

    Although most trails can be completed without a GPS device, owners of the book can download carefully recorded E-trails (1,134 waypoints) to maximize their time on the trail, and accessing the hiking grounds using GPS devices and GPS enabled smartphones and tablets.

    Users of the book also have access to the Wildlife Finder and the Day Trip Planner. These interactive planning tools provide hikers easy access to trail descriptions based on many search criteria including waterfalls, historic sites, wildlife (zebras, giraffes, wildebeests, rhinos, etc.) and other interesting artifacts on the trail.

    The guidebook has been written with the independent traveler in mind but is also a valuable source of hiking ideas if you plan to organize your holiday with a travel company.
