Cederberg : Wolfberg Arch Wildcamp 19-21 Apr (Advanced/Technical)

(6 customer reviews)


This hike is one of the most beautiful multiday hikes in the world and an outdoor lovers dream. It allows you to pass through the Wolfberg Cracks – narrow faucets leading to a different planet. You’ll feel like a spec between those massive cracks once you squeeze your way through the tight space.


The rock formations throughout the entire route are actually mind blowing but it starts to get really exiting once you see the actual Wolfberg Arch in the distance. You’ll marvel at this Arch in all it’s glory while you’re there. One of the craziest things about this mesmerizing rock formation besides camping there is that you will experience the sunset and sunrise which many wildcamping options don’t offer. Most people only do a day hike and cannot take in the full experience of being present there for an extended period. We’ll do a round trip and take a slightly shorter route back.


Ideally, you would like to spend 3 days here – first night in regular accommodation, second night wild-camping at the arch. The pricing for this tour is for the guiding services and includes all meals + accommodation on the night prior to the hike.

    This hike is one that you will never forget- and you won’t want to! There are gorgeous surprises around every corner. I spent most of the hike in complete awe of the terrain. It is very difficult to describe the hike- but that is why it is so special. You have to see it to believe it. Jody will make you feel confident throughout the hike- he is very responsible when guiding. But he also has a positive attitude that impacts the whole group. It is super fun to go through the cracks and work as a group. Then the terrain to the arch makes you feel like you are on the moon. I am a seasoned backpacker having hiked all over the world. This is one of my favourite hikes of all time.

    This hike is not for the faint hearted – but will be etched in my memory forever as one of the best hiking experiences I have had when I did this with Trailfit SA last year. Always felt in safe and supportive hands. This was my first wild camp and packed with visual stumuli that only the Cederberg can offer together with all the fun and adventure of tye playground the Cracks offers . After having completed this challenging hike I found the confidence to try other things snowballed so in addition to all the obvious benefits personal growth can be added

    The Worlfberg Arch hike through the cracks is honestly one of the most memorable hikes I have ever done. It was amazing: you make your way through cracks where you cannot fit with your bag and have to slide through, which is really unique and exciting! The cracks then open and reveal beautiful wilderness where you can just about see the Arch in the distance. Spending a night there was magical and I felt safe. Jody was very resourceful and helpful the whole time and I was so pleased with the week end! Recommended this to all my friends, it was so worth the trip!

    The hike was great and Jody is an excellent and very considerate guide. It was challenging for me because I’m not very fit, but Jody looked after me very well and always made sure I was fine. I will certainly join hikes with Trailfit SA again. It felt like travelling with a group of friends.
