Details:
Several Highlines ranging from 20-65m long will be rigged and ready to walk. A training line for highlining will also be up for first timers to learn the basics. Shorter slacklines will be up at camp too. We’ll also have a bunch of Waterlines over the dams for some fun in the sun!
Other activities will include Climbing, Swimming, Hiking, Unicycling, Juggling, Tricklining, Rodeolining, Music etc…

Camping and Accommodation:
De Pakhuys Campsite will be the main area of activity, in close proximity to the Highlines (10min walk), lake (swimming and waterline), kitchen, bar, etc

Alpha Excelsior also has accomodation available, and a dam for swimming, slacklining and waterlining.

Traveller’s Rest is another accomodation option with a restaurant and slackline alongside a river.
