A Unique Eastern Free State Camino Experience Unlike Any Other

This journey will stay with you long after you pack away your walking gear. It’s an experience for your body, mind, and soul. The winding paths, the quiet moments of reflection, the camaraderie between you and your fellow pilgrims… It all combines into a transformative adventure that settles deep within your being.

Small town hospitality, friendly locals, and the splendour of Mother Nature are a form of therapy that really helps you dig deep. It’s a chance to enjoy the world as it was meant to be enjoyed; away from stress, strain, and the ever-present hustle. 

Your Window into a Simple, Happy Life

The peace and tranquility of undisturbed wildlife and the lack of city traffic make this a pilgrimage you can enjoy without constraint. 


Spend 6 days and 7 nights being truly yourself without any apologies. This journey is for you.
