This is a creative and relaxed way to enjoy Father’s Day.

Hiking in Tzaneen

Considered one of the country’s most beautiful regions, Magoebaskloof has one of the best hiking trails, which goes on for about 13km into the distance.

The trail takes you through a mountain forest, mostly downhill, which descends to the Debengeni falls.
