Central Free State

OVERVIEW

There are two Caledon Rivers and Camelroc Guest Farm is situated right between them. (The farm faces a spectacular sandstone hill with an outcrop shaped like a camel’s head, hence the name). The surrounding Rooiberg ranges offer a great setting for a beautifully varied and purpose-built single-track trail, thus ensuring an authentic mountain bike experience with glorious views over the Maluti Mountains.

On your bike

These are genuine mountain bike trails. Set out in the Rooiberge of the Eastern Free State, near Fouriesburg. Beautiful and varied single trail purpose built for authentic mountaing biking. Excellent views along most of the trail. This is for the adventurer who wants more than just riding on gravel roads and jeep tracks. You will not want to ride these exciting trails just once!!!

There are two routes – 10km figure-of-eight route and a 30km loop – with two shortcut options to reduce these to either 10km or 20km. Overall, the route is quite difficult with a very tough climb up to the mountainous summit. It is mostly single-track and technical, covering varied terrain as it winds through trees along the Small Caledon River and up and down the slopes. Across-the-bar blesbuck viewing will complement the Maluti Mountain ambience here on the edge of rural Lesotho.

Off the bike

Self Catering Chalets, Camp Site and en-suite rooms. Game viewing, swimming, DSTV, hiking trails and a very challenging 4×4 trail.
