Hiking along this part of the Southern Cape Coastline, one realizes that there are so many wonderful and unexplored areas that the Western Cape and especially the Garden Route has to offer. This area south of Mossel Bay is coastal bliss at its best.
Our exceptional guides will lead you past the ancient stone age caves, show and teach you about the fauna and flora along the ever changing route. Your attention will also be constantly drawn to dolphins, lazy whales, frolicking seals in the ocean. While the abundance of birdlife including the rare African Black Oystercatchers is a birders dream.
Every days’ hiking is different. Ranging from cliff tops and sea front caves to wonderful unspoiled beaches. Walk along rocky bays and over massive sand dunes, through Coastal fynbos and wild herbs. Along the way spot(and taste)wild oysters in clear rock pools. Swim in small safe bays. Experience sunny days and clear night skies. If you’re lucky watch the full moon rising over the ocean.
One night is spent in a beautiful Guesthouse in Mosselbay. The rest of your stay is in our quaint and luxurious Sandpiper self catering Cottages in Boggomsbaai. Most of these cottages are in the traditional Cape Fisherman style. These unique cottages are subject to availability…first come first serve. So, book now.
Well known environmentalist and founder of this very special trail, Fred Orban, is also often around to socialize, charm and share amazing stories with the guests.
Willie Khomani, who together with Fred, pioneered this beautiful coastline for sustainable trekking, has recently retired. His knowledge of the plant and animal life, as well as his stories of growing up in the area, will be sorely missed.
This is a dynamic world of waves, rocky shores and the remarkable stone age and Strandloper history of this special part of the Garden Route coast from Mossel Bay to the Gourits river...On these hikes you will learn so much about our coast and you will fall even deeper in love with nature.
Our world renowned Trail has been extensively covered on DSTV channel 250 of BBC by Julia Bradbury, famous presenter in the UK as well as by Pasella, the popular SA TV program.
Hello to both of you - we are back in the UK now and wishing we were still with you! We so enjoyed our stay in the lovely Sandpiper Cottage, which contained everything we could possibly have wanted. It is in such a glorious position with that beautiful empty beach, miles and miles of sand. Just what we needed to rest and recharge our batteries. If ever we come back that way again, we will certainly call on you, and see if you have vacancies........ Thank you so much for everything. You are the perfect hosts.
