About Hike the Dolphin Trail

For those hikers who know the rigours of the Otter Trail, and for those who have never had the luck or the courage to hike it, why not take a well earned break and come and enjoy the unrivalled beauty and luxury of the Dolphin Trail? For two magical days you can now hike the magnificent Tsitsikamma Coast with no heavy backpack, and spend three nights in comfort at different accommodation venues!

This unique trail has been made possible by the formation of a partnership between the Tsitsikamma National Park and two private sector partners, namely Forest Ferns and Misty Mountain Reserve. The result is a hiking experience that will both challenge and pamper you. The trail covers a distance of 17 Km starting in the unrivalled beauty of the Tsitsikamma National Park at Storms River Mouth, and winds its way eastwards through natural fynbos and pristine indigenous forest, over rugged rocks at the waters edge, to end on the banks of the Sandrift River at The Fernery.

The package is fully inclusive and features the following :
- all meals, from dinner on the day of arrival, to breakfast on the day of departure
- the attendance of well trained local guides
- a 4x4 drive through the old Storms River Pass
- the transportation of all luggage by vehicle between overnight stops so that guests need hike only with a light pack containing a few personal items

Hikers have stunning views of the rugged Tsitsikamma coastline, and the chances of spotting whales, dolphins and the occasional otter are good. On route, many birds including the gorgeous Knysna Loerie can be heard and spotted while hiking through the forest, and the endangered Oystercatcher is often to be seen on the shoreline. Swimming and snorkeling in the rock pools is possible at the discretion of the guides.
