Mountain Biking and 4x4 Trails
Are you a Mountain Biking, Hiking or 4x4 enthusiast?
For challenging 4x4 trails, Hiking and Mountain biking routes combined with magnificent scenery and the opportunity to view wild-life along the way, Ivemvane is the place you have been dreaming of.
The reserve is situated at one of the higher points of the Waterberg Mountains, Limpopo Province, South Africa. With just over 1300ha of varying terrain including:
- 4km's of the Dwars river
- jeep tracks (beginner to experienced)
- mountainous rocky roads
- open sandy plains
- plenty of water in Summer, from little mountain streams to marshy flats and vleis
Combined with our active aardvark, mongoose and warthog populations,there is sure to be enough of a challenge without off-roading! Some of the roads are old ox-wagon routes, and require careful negotiation and a bumpy ride. For the more adventurous there are a few trails that are only accessible by mountain bike or per foot, but well worth the effort to explore the variety of scenery and vegetation that exists in this part of the world. The Dwars river flows all year - only the brave attempt to cross this in the summer months.
Imagine an adventure, choose a route, and head out. Pack a picnic, swim in the river or head up to one of the koppies for incredible views in all directions. The choice is yours. We provide a map on arrival, the rest is up to you, in your time at your pace. For those who choose to stay behind, lounging at the pool, a pair of binoculars is useful to view bird-life up close, wild-life in the distance or simply track your more energetic friends' progress...
