A Real Camino Experience in the Untouched Landscape of the Eastern Free State

As you walk along the unbeaten path, every twist along your journey brings a glorious new vista. It’s an adventure for your senses and your spirit. As you feel the gravel crunch beneath your feet, allow yourself to feel your emotions and get to know yourself a little better.

 

You are the pilgrim, you are the guest. Natural landscapes and local neighbourhoods are your generous hosts. You belong to this process as it belongs to you.

Wander Through Different Biomes and Marvel at Creation

Make your way through open fields, rocky farm roads, over hills, and in-between highland trees. There’s so much to enjoy as you move from place to place: flora, fauna, birds, and critters of every description. 

 

Connect with nature as you connect with yourself and your fellow pilgrims.
