We hike in the Magalies Mountains starting from the Go-vertical Backpackers Lodge following a trail on the map available from the lodge. The road takes us up to the ridge after 350 meters of climbing. The altitude of about 1700 meters makes Albertien gasp. On top of the mountain we loose the trail and do not keep our agreement to go back to the last known point..
Albertien shows where we went wrong!

After three hours (of which more than one hour delay because of the lost trail) we are back at the backpackers lodge. Back in Magaliesburg Albertien takes a dive into the small pool and we enjoy an evening braai with Gustav and Rika.

Today to the Rustenburg Mountain Reserve. We are the only walkers but do not get lost because of the fairly easy walk. We spot waterbucks and koedoes.
