Comments: Weekend trails are run from the first weekend of March to Mid December. Report to te Mpila camp office to register, after which you will be directed to the trails officer. It is important to arrive before 13:00 on the date indicated on the reservation voucher. All food will be transported into the wilderness trails camp on donkeys, but trailists will be expected to carry their own clothing, toiletries, and drinks (an internal-frame backpack is provided for this purpose). Personal items will, however, be transported back from the wilderness on the donkeys at the end of the trail. Trailists walk into the trails camp in the Wilderness area on Friday afternoon from which a full day`s walk is undertaken on the Saturday. After breakfast on Sunday, trailists walk back to their vehicles and can spend the rest of the day in the reserve and leave before the gates close. The distance walked on the first day is approximately 7 km. The average distance covered on the second and third days can be up to 15 km, but is flexible depending on various factors. Trailists only 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.
