About The Pongola Express Camp
These historic 1934 SAR carriages were brought to this location in the 60’s as a weekend retreat. They have been renovated and now form the hub for the Num-Num five-day trail, as well as other two, three, and four-day hiking trails on the estate.
We offer seven compartments, sleeping one to four people per compartment, providing a total of 20 berths. With a kitchen, bar, braai, and shop, this is the ideal start or end to any hike. Hikers should bring their own sleeping bags, pillows and towels.
