Uitsoek – Lowveld Trails Package
09-13 October 2021
What is the Uitsoek - Lowveld Trails Package
The Uitsoek Mountain Marathon (40km, 20km, 10km and 5km) is set deep in the Mpumalanga mountains outside Nelspruit, the doorway to the Lowveld. It is rough, it is a serious challenge – some might say it has teeth!! It calls to trail community who want something raw and real. The distance you do is your choice..
Following on from the Uitsoek weekend we have organised a four day (three night) wild walking adventure with Lowveld Trails Co. in the renowned Timbavati Game Reserve. The trail will be lead by one of the most experienced and knowledgeable walking guides in the industry, and backed up by KZNTR’s Andrew Booth. “Having done my Trails Guide Assessment with Wayne from Lowveld Trail Co., it was a profound and grounding experience and gave me the example of the type of guide I want to become. I would love to share this experience with some of our runners, who I know are the type of people that this would speak deeply to.”
With only 8 spaces available for the trail, this is the ultimate when it comes to immersion and connecting with nature.
The experience is self-sufficient, and by carrying all your equipment on your back, you’ll enter a completely different world, where you truely become part of nature.
