The McFab hike follows in the 1925 tradition of a triple challenge with a celebration at the end. The difference is that his hike celebrates three niceties. The first part of the adventure, the hike spans 3 working farms and engages the hiker in everyday farm life, seeing tractors at work, and animals being herded, the hiker might even meet the farm horses roaming free. The 2 days hike covers a distance of 37 km, and include sigh seeing of the farms, a rest under the Willow trees along the Kalkspruit, a swim in the freshwater pool, even a lookout for the endangered Bald Ibis and African Grass owl. After the last 17 km, the second part of the adventure awaits you in the form of a food feast albeit a high tea under the Willows close to a waterfall. The last treat is an extra spoil for sore feet and necks in the form of a massage, and a enigmatic bonfire to seal friendships and enjoy the African skies. Dinner bed and breakfasts, slack pack, high tea and massages are included.

The perfect break away from the hustle and bustle of the city to the picturesque views and fresh air of the Freestate. Nina's hospitality, friendliness and great food is truly a memorable experience.
