Welcome to Queens River Adventure Camp

Set in the breath-taking Makhonjwa Mountains between Barberton and Badplaas the Queen Rose hiking trail is considered to be one of South Africa’s most spectacular. It winds 26km through mountain passes, indigenous forests and over the Queen River and Montrose Plantation. Along the route you will be treated to a wide variety of indigenous plants and animal species, including the 350 types of birds that are found here.

The beauty of the Queen Rose hike is that anyone can do it, as long as you have a reasonable level of fitness and a pair of sturdy hiking boots. Some of the climbs may leave you a little short of breath and the views from the top will certainly take your breath away!

There is the accommodation. For those seeking the authentic hiker’s experience, the two hiking huts provide the perfect ‘basic’ accommodation. But for anyone looking for something special, the Delfonté chalets are the place to stay. Nestled amongst the picturesque grassy mountains the three Delfonté chalets look like they have been plucked straight from the pages of a fairy-tale. For weary hikers they are the perfect remedy for tired feet and the great news for those reluctant to walk is that they can be hired out by non-hikers too.

The Queen Rose hiking trail has it all, the spectacular views, incredible wildlife, entertaining river crossings and perfectly placed natural splash pools. What’s more, anyone can enjoy it from babies in backpacks to spritely senior citizens. Yet the real beauty of the trail is that it enables you to slip away from the stresses of modern day life and reconnect with nature.
