Few places in the world offer as many hiking options as Plettenberg Bay and its surrounds which include several national parks and nature reserves. Trails traverse diverse terrain in environments that are still pristine and off the beaten track.
Professional guides add depth to the hiking experience by shining a light on the rich history and ecology of the area; Khoisan caves with their tools and middens, the astoundingly diverse floristic type-fynbos with its fascinating stories of adaptation and evolution, or where to find the biggest Yellowwood tree in the vast indigenous forests.
Local hiking guides know how to keep you safe. They read the weather, know what gear’s required, and understand the tides and phases of the moon. Local knowledge will be especially reassuring as you hike the rugged coastline. Many of the most iconic trails in and around Plettenberg Bay include stretches of coastal walking, where you’ll cross smooth pebbled beaches, explore wave -formed caves and scramble along honey-combed sea cliffs with wild waves churning beneath you.
