About Hike the Otter Trail

The Otter Trail follows the magnificent Garden Route coastline from Storms River Mouth to Nature's Valley in the Tsitsikamma National Park.

The trail is 42,5 kms long and takes 4 to 5 days to complete. The Otter Trail follows the rugged, rocky shoreline ranging in elevation from sea level to a height of more than 150m. Most of the trail follows cliff tops returning to sea level to cross rivers.

The Otter Trail is justifiably considered by many to be the top hiking trail in South Africa. Although It is only 42.5 kms long it is not an easy trail by any means.

This is a very popular trail and more applications are received for bookings than can be accommodated. The trail is worth the patience needed in obtaining a booking.
