The Strandloper Trail runs from the Kei River Mouth to Gonubie - almot 60 kms of gorgeous beaches, rivers, cliff tops and coastal forests. Itís not called Strandloper (beach walker) for nothing.

Most of the hike travails East Londons beaches and the accompanying waves, shorelines, tidal pools and incredible sand dunes, estuaries and coastal forests.

Itís clearly marked with little yellow feet and accommodation borders on basic with four overnight shelters and no hot water. But there are some good stops en route at hotels and pubs where you can get a good meal (although you might want to plan these beforehand), and, despite one or two difficult river crossings and the fact that the last two hours of the hike are said to be the worst, it has some of the most magnificent accompanying scenery.

The good news is that there is a slackpacker version of the Strandloper called the Strandloperís Sundowner Trail - the same route, sleeping in hotels with your luggage carried for you. However the cost is a lot higher.
