Bermanzi hiking trail, Machadodorp
Translated, Bermanzi means ‘the mountain where the water is’. Bermanzi offers you an outdoor experience beyond compare.
The hiking trails vary between 4km and 12km with breathtaking views of valleys with indigenous forests and rock pools. The trails are rich in cultural and historical sites, check out the genuine Bushman rock paintings, Pedi and Swazi Kraals as well as Anglo Boer War sites. Take advantage of and enjoy the crystal clear rock pools which beckon the sweaty hikers to a refreshing dip. Visit the second highest waterfall in Mpumalanga, the magnificent Bankspruit Waterfall.
The Bermanzi Mountain Retreat is nestled on the edge of the escarpment between the Mpumalanga towns of Machododorp, Waterval-Boven and Badplaas situated in the northern part of the Drakensberg. It is only two and a half hours from Gauteng.
Few places offer the awe inspiring setting that Bermanzi has to offer, and together with the thought and care that the owner has put into the facilities, it has created a trail that is sure to be a favourite among hikers and nature lovers for years to come.
