About the Trail

Zingela Trail Run is a two day Trail Running event, based on the banks of the mighty Tugela River in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. Held at the most beautiful time of year to experience the African bush, you can expect warm, blue sky days and crisp, chilly evenings and early mornings. The Zingela Trail Run makes use of a trail network of game paths, within thousands of hectares of arid, thorny bushveld. The area is teeming with game, including giraffe, nyala, kudu, impala, blue wildebeest, warthog and ostrich. The terrain is varied, but is predominantly undulating, rocky game paths, dotted with tall standing aloes and acacia’s.
