Woodbush Forest/Dokelwa Trail | iinfo Tzaneen, Haenertsburg

Dokewa Trail. Start hiking from the Broederstroom hut or the Waterfall hut. When starting from the Broederstroom hut, follow a plantation road to the wetland area of the Broederstroom.

When crossing the wetland, follow the embankment next to the stream and pass over a natural bridge. If you choose to start hiking from the Waterfall hut, follow the plantation road for a few hundred metres and then enter an indigenous forest.

The trail takes you through the forest and small sections of plantation before you cross the upper parts of the Broederstroom.

After crossing the upper parts of the Broederstroom, cross the watershed. Walk through pine trees and a plantation patch that link up with an old mule path that was used to transport timber from the indigenous forest in the past.

Along the trail there are breath-taking views of the forest in the valley below. After passing underneath a high-tension power cable, you will reach a patch of indigenous forest. The trail then leads through a large valley and a few sawpits in the forest. From here it passes through a small valley, which takes you to the top of a series of high waterfalls.

From the waterfalls, follow a stream to a third waterfall and then descend to some large tree ferns. A small plantation path leads to the Dokolewa stream. From this point, follow a forest road for about a kilometre and then enter a small footpath that leads to the Dokolewa Pools hut.

To reach De Hoek, ascend through pine trees for approximately one kilometre. Dokolewa House three day trail.
