About Kopshorn Peak Hiking Trail

Kopshorn Peak is one of the highest around Barkly East and offers incredible mountain views. Accessible from Prospect Self Catering Cottage, this four-hour trail has some steep ascents and a challenging vertical rock climb. The hike is strenuous and is not recommended for the elderly or unfit.

Large baboons often caper about and there are some venomous snakes to keep a wary lookout for. Be prepared for sudden weather changes – take along a snack, sufficient fluid, sunblock and warm gear. Should mist roll over the mountains, please descend immediately to avoid getting lost or going over precipitous cliffs edges.

Day fees apply for hikers who have booked the trail but are not guests at Prospect Cottage. Please visit the main house and arrange with the owners before hitting the trail. For your safety the hikes take place at the owners discretion after clearing weather conditions.
