Freewalker Adventures took to the mountains this past weekend to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. The route up to Doodsklip Campsite is a long and treacherous one, full of blind corners and single track paths, 4×4 is recommended for this escape. Doodsklip campsite is nestled a good 3.5 hours drive from Port Elizabeth, and is situated on one of the banks of the upper reaches of the Kouga Dam. One of the passes called Combricks Pass climbs a steep 300m in just 5 kilometers of crawling through the pass. The name Doodsklip can be directly translated into “Death Rock”, named so after 5 people mysteriously died here. Once in Camp, you will be completely surrounded by mountains, untouched vegetation and the constant bark of baboons to remind you that they are watching. Friendly reminder not to leave anything lying around camp as you will receive visitors at 5:00 am scavenging through your goods. The Campsite is also completely open to wandering Buffalo, and these were seen from the safety of kayaks on the river banks. Baviaanskloof offers a weekend retreat to loose touch of civilization and discover an area uninhibited for the past 200 years, making this a World Heritage site of note.
