365 Things to do in Fort Beaufort

365 Things to do in Fort Beaufort Lying in the heart of the citrus farming Katriver Valley, Fort Beaufort is a little historical town that dates back to 1822, when a frontier post was established here by the British, who occupied the town until 1870 during a period of struggle for possession between colonists, supported by the British, and the Xhosa.

Katberg Trail:
The Kat River Valley is the site of one of the best and most effective forts built to act as a buffer between the Xhosa people and the Settlers who had recently entered this terrain in what was known as the Frontier Wars.

The valley and mountain are regarded as an area of great natural beauty, preserved in a series of nature reserves and game farms, the indigenous forest and pine plantations, fynbos and grasslands a space made available for outdoor activities that include hiking and bike riding, climbing and horse riding.

Mpofu Game Reserve is one of these reserves, just north of Fort Beaufort, filled with wildlife that wanders the mountain grasslands and valley bushveld that form the backdrop of the Katberg Hiking Trail.

The trail passes through the reserve, which also boasts a series of caves with San rock art examples.

Hikers overnight on night one at the Ntloni hut after a 17 km walk. Day two follows a similar length of trail beyond the Katberg Pass to Readsdale hut, and the final day's climb out of the valley and then along the escarpment, offering incredible views all round, descends to the end of the hike at Benholm.

There is also a Katberg Loop Trail, an 18 km hike near Balfour.
