The Great Kudu Route at Zulu Kingdom Trails is a more than 20km route through the most awe inspiring landscape the Zulu Kingdom has to offer. On this route you are bound to encounter a wide variety of big and small game. Needless to say, caution is warranted near wild animals.

The Great KUDU Route starts from the Belvedere Lodge and goes around the perimeter of the entire Belvedere Game Ranch. It follows a good mix of double track, single track and wilderness trails, but is easy to follow - look for the Kudu Horn Blazes the entire way round. There are several places on the Route where you can bail out or take alternative trails for a diversion.

The entire route is easy to moderate, with a few modest climbs and fun down hills. While the Route can be ridden in both directions, clockwise makes the best use of the terrain.


To start, from the Lodge ride up Preekstoel Climb to the Preekstoel Junction marker and turn right onto Kudu North.
