Greater Kruger Backpack Trail
Location & General Information

Manukuza Backpack Trail

The Manukuza Backpack Trail follows the game paths & river systems found in the Greater Kruger National Park and surrounding historic wildlife sanctuaries.

The trailests will be absorbed into an extremely remote and exclusive piece of Big 5 land. These locations isolate us from the outside world and allows you to become totally immersed in an authentic bushveld environment where the ‘hustle and bustle’ of city life is forgotten.

Trailests need to be fit and in good health. Our Wilderness Backpack trails are a self-sustained adventure guided by two trails guides. You will however be responsible for all your required gear. Nights are spent under the stars at a location chosen by your guides.
