Slackpacking in the Garden Route.
Slackpacking is a heavenly combination of hiking in the great outdoors and the finer things in life, like a hearty meal, chilled wine and a comfy bed.
Garden Route slackpacking easily provides the best of both these worlds. This area is famous for its pristine nature, diverse habitats and great hiking routes and also for its tranquil guesthouses, warm hospitality and excellent cuisine.
Slackpacking routes endeavour to include the most scenic trails which move through known beauty spots. You’ll experience the wonder of fynbos with its handsome Proteas and dainty Ericas, and then plunge into dense indigenous forests with shy bushbuck lurking in the shadows and the next minute you’ll burst out into the sunshine and find yourself on a paradisiacal beach. Coastal paths are the focus of many of the slackpacking itineraries. The Garden Route coast; its jagged cliffs, sweeping white beaches and tidal pool fringed shores make for wonderful walking.
So if hiking without the fuss is for you, select one of the great slackpacking trails of the Garden Route and get those hiking Boots Dirty!
