Bushbuck Bonanza is an awesome, flowy and mostly smooth singletrack trail that winds its way down into the valley from Belvedere Lodge. Keep your eyes open for a few rock gardens and other rocky ledge features common in the Zulu Kingdom Landscape. At the end of Bushbuck Bonanza you can go straight onto Leopard Hill Trail and from there onto River Run Trail. Together these three trails makes for an exquisite singletrack adventure on some super smooth trails with challenging rock gardens and special features mixed in. This is an easy ride for good beginner, intermediate and advanced riders alike. If you want more action, just dial up the speed. Bushbuck Bonanza is best going downhill and is a moderate (Blue) climb going uphill.

Access Info

Bushbuck Bonanza starts from the Preekstoel Climb Trail just north of the Belvedere Game Lodge's perimeter and joins the Leopard Hill Trail as well as Farm Track 1 at the bottom. SP2 Preekstoel Gravity joins the trail near the bottom..
