An easy Multi-Cache which is combined with a short hiking tour on the beautiful farm Rooiklip in Namibia.
Rooiklip is a farm situated at the foot of the Gamsberg mountain. It is located 190 km Sothwest of Windhoek and 210 km Southeast of Walvis Bay. Besides activities like relaxing and enjoying the beautiful landscape, there are also three marked hiking trails. One of these trails will guide you to the cache. You can get information about the walking trails at the reception or on the website of the farm.
The “Leopard Trail” will guide you through a beautiful rivier. The cache will provide some interesting information about the flora along the trail. The cache will lead you through six stages to the final location. You only have to follow the hiking trail and note the information on the identification plates.
