Join us on a hiking adventure at your own comfort level as Jonkershoek has plenty to offer from “easy, not to strenuous” hikes to “this is almost mountaineering” in difficulty.

Quick route description
The start of the Second waterfall hike sits deep into the Jonkershoek valley. Gradual at the beginning with a well maintained sandy path we will pass the first waterfall visible from far on the approach. With a quick stop and possible swim on the warmer days we will carry on to the second waterfall. Just before we enter the kloof there are a few quick steps up and over before we arrive at the river. From here we follow the river to the origin up the kloof the start of the Eerste Rivier.
The route follows the same way back out as in.

WeatherThe weather in Jonkershoek can change in an instant so a light mid-layer and a rain jacket will ensure that you stay dry and warm if we find our selves in between the clouds.
What to WearWell supportive closed-toe walking shoes with good grip are a must. Jonkershoek does experience very hot days in the summer and a hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, and water will be needed. A long sleeve button-up shirt with a collar provides great sun coverage.
Things to BringHiking will make you peckish so bringing a snack for the way up is always a good idea
