Drakensberg Hikes

Highmoor to Aasvoëlkrans Cave

Route: Highmoor to Aasvoëlkrans Cave
Distance: 4.5 km (9 km return)
Duration: 2.5 hours each way (one day)

Aasvoëlkrans Cave is an easy day day hike in the Central Drakensberg. The cave is unsuitable for young children as high drop-offs in front of the cave require considerable care.

From the Highmoor Reserve car park head North West towards a gate and turn right at the sign. After 250m going downhill cross the stream over the wooden bridge and after another 250m on after the stream crossing take the path to the right which leads to the small Kamloops Dam wall.  Once past the dam, take the left path which leads gently uphill.

Once over this small hill you begin to slowly go downhill and then cross a stream (2.2km into the hike), a waterfall can be seen to the right where you cross the stream (picture alongside). After the stream crossing the path turns right (East) alongside the hill in front of you. You follow the path and just before it ends is a steep path with steps winding down the hill towards the stream and Aasvoëlkrans cave. To return go the same way.
