After the the recent fires in the Western Cape, the Murludi Hiking Trails are now OPEN.
In order to enjoy our beautiful hiking routes you need to have a permit. No hiking will be allowed unless an official permit can be presented. Permits can be obtained from the Tulbagh Tourism office or on Murludi Farm.
Unfortunately no dogs are allowed on our routes.
Elsbos and River Routes
At Murludi we offer two hiking routes; Elsbos (10km) and River (4km). The shorter river route gives an idea of the farming activities and also pass along beautiful mountain fynbos (natural vegetation). The longer route, the Elsbos Route, for part of the way follow the same route as the River Route, but after that continues for 6 km through the fynbos, along the lower hills of the Witzenberg Mountains.
The routes are in the Northern part of the Tulbagh Valley and have some of the finest views of the valley. The walking trails cross mountain streams quite a few times and there is no shortage of fresh water to drink. The routes are interesting and ever changing - inclines, steep declines, rocks, plains, bridges, natural and manmade steps ect.
Sites worth seeing
Fruit farming, mountain fynbos, bird life, small game like duikers, grysbuck and if you are lucky even klipspringers (African chamois) can be viewed. The middle of September to mid October is the best time for a variety of flowers. The route goes through clumps of beautiful waboom trees and also small clumps of indigenous bush that have been saved.
