Castle Gorge is a hidden gem for hikers, featuring beautiful waterfalls, crystal clear pools and weathered rock formations that are great for swimming and photographing. It’s an 9.5 km hike over the southern face of the Magaliesberg (quite steep but not for too long). Once we are over the peak it settles into a lovely level walk till we reach the gorge.

DIFFICULTY & GEAR
Somewhere between moderate to diffcult, so do bring:

• a swim suit and towel
• two litres of water
• a strong pair of walking shoes or hiking books
• a hat
• sunblock
• an energizing snack
• an emergency plastic poncho in the event of showers

DIRECTIONS
Follow the GPS coordinates. It is about 1h 40min northwest of Johannesburg.
