Our Hiking Trails!
We all just wanted to say how much we enjoyed the hike and how well organised it all was.
Please thank everyone involved from us all. We all had a wonderful time!
The accommodation was absolutely fabulous and all of it so different which was great. We felt that everybody had gone that extra mile to make us feel comfortable and welcome.
The birdsong in the morning was amazing.
A five-day hike with a Slack-packing option from Port Alfred to the Fish River.
We enjoyed the beauty of this coastline and the private farms on which we stayed.
The huts are rudimentary but the setting of most of the huts was unique and special.
The Shipwreck trail, which takes 6 days (5nights) is one of the best trails I have done. The scenery is exquisite and the trail takes advantage of the unspoiled natural beauty of the environment to deliver an experience that is diverse and interesting. Dave Marais, who has decades of experience in hiking in Africa, is a marvellous host, just the right amount of information and guidance, and clearly taking pleasure in our enjoyment of his hike.
From the beach to the dune to the forest, and taking in the canoe trip up the Kleinemonde West river, we had an absolutely wonderful time.
Each hut is completely different, adding to the magic of the hike. A moderate amount of fitness is required but one of our party, who had a dicky knee, still managed to do part of the trail and provided one takes one’s time, it is achievable by most. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
