Rhenoster Trail Run

By Shaun, Voets Toets Hiking

Our beautiful setting for this week was the Crocodile River Reserve. Approximately 3500 hectares of land and was proclaimed a Protected Nature Reserve in 2019 according to the National Environment Protected Act.

There was a 5km and 12km trail route on offer.


Run the Rhenoster trail run is hosted once a year and is situated on the farmlands of the local plot owners.

Grab a pair of all-rounder shoes, with good grip and stability.


The trail is suitable for families with young children and avid trail runners. It’s a flat trail that loops you next to the Crocodile river. The scenery is truly representative of our African plains. It’s a vast veld with grasslands and more lush vegetation closer to the river. The sound of the running water brings a calming element to the hike.

Field Notes:

The “Mother of all boots” Moab Merrell shoes was a good fit for this terrain. Whether I was taking a slow walk or had a burst of energy going into a run, my Merrell Moab Flight shoes were a winner.

 They boast comfort and are light weight, which makes the journey so rewarding. This shoe is an all-rounder, as it has the elements of good grip and provided my feet with the stability needed for unexpected rocky areas.
