Overview

Holiday Highlights

  • Hike two of South Africa’s more iconic trails.
  • Savour fresh seafood dinner whilst on the dramatic wild coast.
  • Enjoy a wildlife game drive in search of the Big Five.

This holiday combines two of South Africa’s top hiking trails, the Wild Coast Meander and the Oyster Catcher Trail, with a visit to the Tsitsikamma National Park in between. This all provides an incredible insight into some of South Africa’s ancient history. We walk in areas that have revealed the earliest evidence of human existence, and showcase the beauty of pristine nature, with some of the finest views you are likely to encounter anywhere in the country. On these scenically spectacular walks you will discover varied coastal walking, exciting river crossings and resident wildlife.

We arrive in Cape Town, home to iconic Table Mountain, where we stay for two nights and discover the city sights. Then we fly to East London on the Indian Ocean coast and travel by road to our first hiking trail, The Wild Coast Meander, a 35 mile, five day duration hike that runs along a remote and untouched coast line. The long empty beaches and river estuaries abound with marine life and provide an unsurpassed tranquility.

Our next base is the Tsitsikamma National Park; we stay here two nights and explore the most beautiful indigenous forest. Located between the sea and mountains, it is a place flowing with water, full of lush vegetation, wildlife and spectacular waterfalls. No wonder they call it the Garden of the Garden Route!

Heading further west we arrive at Mossel Bay to start The Oyster Catcher Trail. Our expert guides here will tell us all about the edible and medicinal plants, take us to visit some Khoi San relics and show us how to identify tracks left in the sand. The earliest dated evidence of modern man has been discovered in one of the caves here. On our last day, we end on a high, as we head off for the thrilling wildlife experience of on an afternoon game drive in the Garden Route Game Park, and an opportunity to view the Big Five.
