This is the adventurous Primitive Trail. The first and last nights are spent, in the comfort of Mdindini Camp with hot and cold showers and a fridge.

While the second and third nights are spent under the stars out in the infamous iMfolozi Wilderness Area. This allows hikers to start the trail refreshed and to undertake the journey home after a comfortable night's sleep in the Base Camp.

After booking in at Mpila Resort, trailists will be met by the Trails Officer and his Field Guide assistant, and directed to the Mndindini Base Camp where they will be able to settle in and also meet their cook who will prepare their food on the first and final nights.

The Trails Officer and the Field Guide will prepare food on the second and third nights, although hikers are welcome to assist. It is recommended that visitors arrive at Mpila Resort reception by 13:00, as they need to be at Mdindindi by 14:00.

It is further recommended that everyone leave their watches and cellular phones,Use it for photos but if it rings your in trouble... But really, in order to benefit fully from the freedom best to disconnect for outside for wile...

Small camps are set up at night, with hikers sleeping under the stars around a small fire after enjoying a meal prepared by the Field Guide.

A lightweight rain shelter is provided in case of bad weather. Distances covered each day are not excessive due to the need to carry all equipment.

Backpacks are sometimes left at a campsite, however, and day walks taken to explore the wilderness area in relative freedom. As with all iMfolozi Wilderness Trails,

A reasonable degree of fitness is recommended in order to derive the greatest enjoyment from your trail. Explorer Trials are conducted from mid-February to the end of November and take a maximum of eight Hikers.



KZN Wildlife will supply all equipment and provide all meals. You may bring your own equipment as long as it blends into the bush environment. You may bring you own additional snacks and drinks should you feel the necessity.


Some House Keeping

About Drinks On The Trails..

A little alcohol may be brought into the wilderness area, however no excessive drinking will be allowed for reasons of safety, and to avoid detracting from the wilderness ethic, which involves quietly blending in with the environment.

 If the rules are broken, the walks will proceed no further than one kilometre from the base camp or wilderness camp, depending on the trail.

In order to maintain the wilderness ethic and character, Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife wilderness trail facilities remain as simple as possible. Remember that you will have to carry all your alcohol for two days!
