The trails are run from 14 February to 10 December, and depart on Fridays and Sundays.

This trail is fully catered, and all food is transported into the wilderness trails camp on donkeys, but trailists are expected to carry a daypack containing their personal effects, water and lunch.

Personal items will be transported back from the wilderness on the donkeys at the end of the trail. Guests who overnight at Mpila Camp the night before the trail, may organize to have the bulk of their personal belongings carried into the wilderness camp in "donkey bags" Available from Mpila Camp reception.

Which are then carried to the wilderness camp by the donkeys. These bags must be dropped off at Mpila reception by 16:00 the day before the trail.

Please note if you will be staying overnight outside the Park that the gate times are 06:00 to 18:00). Gate times are strictly enforced.

Trailists are required to book in at Mpila Camp by 11:00 as the trail begins at 12:00 on the first day. Trailists will be met by the trails staff and given a trails briefing.

After their bags have been packed, Hikers walk the approximate seven kilometres to the wilderness camp where they will spend the following two nights. These camps offer dome tents with two mattresses in each. The camp has no ablution facilities apart from the traditional shower bucket of warm water, hung in a tree. A spade, toilet paper and matches serve as a toilet.

Then walk back to Mndindini Base Camp on the third day, carrying only their personal effects and snack. The trail ends at 10:30. The distance walked on the first day is approximately seven kilometres.

The average distance covered on the second and third days can be up to 15 km, but is flexible depending on conditions. Trailists carry all their personal equipment on the first day.

On the second and third days they carry only a light pack containing their picnic lunches and water bottles. This trail is by no means an endurance test, but a fair level of fitness will ensure greater enjoyment.

Arrival and Registration

Check in at Mpila Resort reception before 11:00. Please note that your group needs to reach their wilderness camp before dark, and therefore needs to leave Mpila in good time to pack personal gear properly and then walk to the overnight camp.

The Trails Officer and Field Guide will meet clients at 11:45 on the first day of the trail at the Mpila Camp reception. It is essential for Hikers to be punctual as once the group leaves the Mdindini Trails Base Camp for their wilderness camp any latecomers will not be accommodated.

It is thus essential to make adequate provision for traveling time between your point of departure and Mpila Resort. The driving time between Johannesburg and Mpila Resort is approximately seven hours. Durban to Mpila is approximately four hours.
