Louis Changuion Hiking Trail

Louis Changuion Hiking Trail
There are a lot of short walks and trails accross our beautiful land that are worth exploring. When we hike trails like the Magoebaskloof Trail it is worth looking around at what the area has to offer and maybe spend an extra day relaxing and doing some of the day trails in the area. One of these trails is in Haenertsburg in the Limpopo Province, The Louis Changuion Hiking Trail.

The trail goes through three Afromontane forest patches and a highly threatened grassland. It begins and ends in the historical village of Haenertsburg in the foothills of the Wolkberg Wilderness area in Limpopo Province. The remains of a Long Tom cannon can be viewed in the village and a quaint isolated graveyard along the route also warrants a stop.

The trail is about 10 km in length and has stunning views, including a panorama of the northern most part of the Drakensberg range and quaint picnic spots. It should take about half a day to complete but hikers are encouraged to stop and look for special plants and animals along the way. Maps of the trail and information booklets on medicinal plants, insects and birds are available for hikers in the village. It is interesting to note that only one out of six plants are actually grasses unlike many other trails and hikers may be rewarded by seeing some unusual flowers. Some threatened fauna that may be seen along the hike are Blue Swallow, Methuens Dwarf Gecko and the Wolkberg Zulu Butterfly.

The trail is maintained on a volunteer basis by the community. The Louis Changuion Hiking Trail offers a restful weekend to recharge the batteries and the senses. Haenertsburg is about 300 km north of Johannesburg and 60 km north east of Polokwane (Pietersburg).

The trail is maintained on a volunteer basis by the community. For a guided trail contact well known bird guide David Letsoalo. Cell: +27-83-5684678
