Castaway Slackpacking Trail - Slackpacking

Our new hike is certified Green Flag status.

Stretching along the Eastern Cape coastline in all its beauty.

We are in the middle of the Route 72 coastal road between Port Elizabeth and East London. We base ourselves at Woodlands Cottages in Kenton on the Bushmans river 3 km from the sea.

Our hike is 1-5 days, traveling from Woodlands as the base. The hike has numerous different flavours as follows:

Hike on beach, kayak up estuaries, walk along boardwalks , climb sand stone paths , siting/crossing 4 estuaries and exploring the wild woody cape forest, in the Addo reserve. The moderate and reasonable fitness levels are needed for the 10 -18 km walks per day. A local guide is recommended. Our weather is fair all year round.

Stuff to see: birds, indigenous animals, historic sites, shipwrecks, plants, cycads, trees, rock pools , and the incredible local people. Explore the unknown!

We are flexible : Choose your accommodation, meals & refreshments, portage/transfers, days, guide requirements and we will put a package together for you/family or team. Max 12.
