The Forest

Skyway Trails is set in one of the last remaining natural forested valleys along the Sabie River, adjacent to the Kruger National Park. Ideally situated on the northern side of the river, and predominantly south facing, it is well protected from the Northern sun, and as a result remains relatively moist throughout the year. The valley forms a steep bowl that has preserved elements of true afro mountain forest and boasts a number of endangered plant species (Breonadia silcina, Pterocarpus anglolensis) including a rarely found orchid (Acampe praemorsa), which has now become the only second record of its existence in the Mpumalanga Province.

The wonderful botanical diversity supports a large variety of birds and animals that have made this forest there home. From the more commonly seen Purple-crested Turaco to the less common and rarely seen Narina Trogon, the forest canopy is alive with activity. On the forest floor, bushpigs, bushbuck and the rare red duiker go about there business undisturbed often foraging below a troop of Vervet monkeys moving through the valley from one fruiting tree to the other.

The valley is also home to a variety of aquatic animals that inhabit the perennial stream that cuts through forest on its way down to the Sabie River.

Skyway trails gives you a unique perspective of this forest environment and access to some of the most spectacular scenery in the region, with the sound of running water always in the background. It is sure to be an experience you will never forget. We are bird watching friendly.
