The Green Flag Certified Tsitiskamma trail is the first officially accredited hiking trail and will take you through mountain fynbos and the green, flourishing forests. The ancient river gorges and abundance of rivers and streams provide ample swimming spots.
The trails begins in Nature’s Valley and ends approximately 60km away at either the Storms River Bridge or Village. The trail is a 6 day hike that will take you through the heart of the Tsitsikamma Mountains. There are a few shorter options that range from 2 to 5 days made possible by the unique access routes to each of the 5 over night huts.
If you'd prefer the slackpacking option which has all your equipment transported between overnight huts, allowing the luxury of carrying only daypacks on each day’s journey, this is now a possibility. This makes the trail accessible to a wider range of people and provides all with more time for swimming, photography, birding and other activities usually limited by time or weight constraints.
Field guides and binoculars are definitely recommended along this exciting and unpredictable journey. Many of the forest giants are labeled with their tree names and hikers can have much fun with guessing and identification games along the route.
