Plett Game Reserve to De Vlugt Return via Bufflesnek

84km; 1831m  
Trail Overview

Park just inside the game reserve gate, on the right hand side of the road. Follow the route through the Uplands dairy farms and through the forest back onto the Uniondale road. Any gates that you find closed, please ensure that they’re closed behind you! Pass Kransbos and Worldsview on your way to the Knysna/Uniondale Rd intersection. Turn right and proceed via two climbs and descents to deVlugt. There you can get a beverage and melktert at the Tearoom or visit “Angie’s G-Spot”. Re-trace your route and continue past the turnoff to Plett and on to Buffelsnek Forest Station (small shop at Buffelsnek with basics…even for cyclists!). From there it is a hectic 6km descent followed by the climb back up to Kransbos. From there it is a rolling return to the Game Reserve.
