About Breakaway Trails

Breakaway Trails offers the ideal getaway for the individual, family or group in four cosy mountain chalets, at very affordable rates. The owners are also the managers and personal care is guaranteed.

Situated between the Free State, Eastern Cape, and Transkei, and nestled between mountains, natural creeks and the Orange River, lies Breakaway Trails. Just 190 km from Bloemfontein on the N6 towards Aliwal North.

Enjoy the comfortable accommodation while still receiving the outdoor experience, being overwhelmed by countless stars, hearing the fish eagles call, and seeing small game such as the mountain reedbuck, steenbuck, springbuck and blesbuck in their natural surroundings.

Exploring offers the Orange River, with all its splendour, natural creeks with caves and rock art, and numerous varieties of trees and bird life. Shed all ties with stress, wallow in nature, and leave feeling like a kid again.

Hosts were very friendly and helpful (even provided something we forgot to bring for free!).Accommodation is appealing, clean, views from room is wonderful. Will definately be back.

We had the most wonderful experience staying on your magnificent farm, albeit just a short stay of one night. We slept comfortably and well. We will most certainly be back to stay when we are in the area again and will make a point to extend our stay so as to explore more of what is on offer (hikes, river etc.), and to take in more of the remote beauty.Thank you for your wonderful hospitality! Best regards,The Laatzers(Ryan, Liesel and Hannah)

Hierdie pragtige wegbreek plekkie se naam kon net sowel Rus-en-vrede gewees het, want dit is presies wat ons hier beleef het. Wonderlike skoon lug om in te asem, stilte om ons heen! Miskien was ons net gelukkig om die enigste gaste op daardie tyd daar te wees. Sal verseker weer daarheen gaan!
