We went on the 5k hike with kids aged 12 and 8. It was magnificent, not too challenging but definitely more technical than others we tried. The area is beautiful beyond imagination, and so is the view from the top (about 300 hight meters).

We have regularly been visiting Rustig over the last 3 years and were disappointed to see the deterioration in the quality of the service we received. They have drastically cut their staff compliment and as a result the braais are not cleaned, bins not emptied,...More

We opted for the 13km Karee trail and completed it in one day. It took us about 7 hours to complete, and we did get lost in the last bit, but that is purely due to being so amazed by the scenery, that we didn't...More

Rustig has a great 5km hiking trail with breathtaking views of the surrounds. We have previously hiked here and thoroughly enjoyed it. For our most recent stay we booked the 10 sleeper farm house for our group and though the natural beauty in the area...More

We completed the 5km hike at Rustig - a lovely hike with enough adventure to keep it interesting. Rustig offers various hiking trails with differing lengths, depending on your preference. The scenery along the way is breath-taking and the trail is well marked and maintained....More

Rustig's 13KM Karee hike is one of the most intense hikes I've done to date. its long and vigorous. Entrance is R75 per adult, there is a swimming pool and accommodation. The views are break-taking, the route is rough and has lots of stones! -...More

The Karee hiking trail at Rustig farm is not for the faint hearted, and especially not in summer. Technically speaking, there are three different ways in which you could tackle the hike. You could do 6km and then take the 2km Chicken Run route back...More

For the starting hiker this is a great place not too far from Joburg, and not too challenging. Can't speak for the accommodation or food at Rustig, but the area is great, and you can enjoy the pool after a day out hiking

Went for the 13km over night hike. The 9km was a challenge with kit so I suggest you get a early start and take enough water (at least 4lt). Route is well marked and you are in for some spectacular views. The over night hut...More
