Trail Construction

Constructing trails is much more scientific than clearing a path through the bush. If you want your trails to be enjoyable, sustainable and cheap to maintain, then you need a professional trail builder.


Trail Maintenance

Nguni Trails provides monthly trail maintenance for your trail network. Building trails is only half the job. Once built, trails require regular maintenance to increase user enjoyment and reduce user risk.

Race Route Preparation

Own an MTB race and don't have time to prepare the routes? Want to up the quality of your race trails? Nguni Trails provides trail preparation services so that your participants have a memorable experience on manicured trails.

The growth of sports such as mountain biking and trail running across the world and in South Africa has been significant over the past few years.  These sports present an excellent opportunity to grow tourism, create jobs and develop enterprises in rural areas.

Recognising the opportunities that exist to create great trails and empower communities, N3 Gateway Tourism Association NPC and Sappi Southern Africa Limited (through the Sappi Trails Programme) have partnered to develop the Karkloof Adventure Tourism Incubator (Karkloof ATI). The ATI has been funded by the Industrial Development Corporation and Sappi Southern Africa Limited. The N3 Gateway Tourism Association helped conceptualise and plan the project and will be involved in its implementation. The Karkloof ATI kicked off in April 2019 and is a pilot project aimed at lifting the standards of the Karkloof/ Howick trail networks and creating an effective model for skills and enterprise development.
