Giants Castle

Langilabele / Bannerman: About 6 hours with a fairly stiff climb towards the contiour path. This trail takes you round 800m up and you should be used to walking before you start.

Worlds View: About 4 hours easy walking with very little elevation. Spectacular 360 view at the end of the trail.

Main Caves: Very easy walk (45 mins)  to the renowned Bushman rock art site. There is a guided tour every hour on the hour. But if you are a real rock art fan you must rather see what Kamberg has to offer.  Its worth knowing that the tours are every hour on the hour at the Main Caves. You need to get a ticket at the office before you start walking.

Lammergeyer Hide: Be driven early in the morning by 4x4 to the hide to watch the vulchers feeding.

The walk takes 3 hours there and back and is a little steep for the last 15 minutes. The bushman rock art paintings are about as spectacular as they come.
