“In case you are having doubts because of the weather, I'm here to tell you to book the trip and just go! Good weather will find you along the way, and if it doesn't, you'll still have a great time.

Drove from Sasolburg to Mthatha and it was raining all the way, imagine that! Mthatha was even worse: had low-hanging clouds/mist and fine drizzle the entire time there but luckily it wasn't cold. I still hiked, I still swam and admired the beautiful Coffee Bay and Hole in the Wall.”

There is no such thing as bad weather; only bad gear 😉

It’s not just any ol’ trail….. gem of the Eastern Cape and one of the top and toughest multi-day hikes in South Africa. What are you waiting for?

“What a spectacular trip up Wilson’s and down Mzimude South pass 🌄 I have never seen quite so much water in the Berg! The escarpment was a flood plain, which made us all the more grateful for the shelter of Mzimude cave.”

January 2022 has been a very, very rainy month in the Berg. Let’s hope it’s a sign of blessings to come!

“If you are flexible falling will not hurt you…”

“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves” - Bruce Lee

Water is a great metaphor for life. It’s also so fine after hiking on a hot summers day 💦 ☀️

“It is a lot like Narnia but with more room for activities and it’s actually real.

There’s a special joy that comes from exploring places that have no paths. Then there’s the joy that comes from swimming, jumping, climbing and abseiling your way down a kloof (still with no path).”

📸 and caption @nicolaslarsen 

Of all the ways you can traverse mountainous terrain, kloofing has got to be one of the coolest and most adventurous. Have you ever tried it?

Grassy peaks, forested valleys, silver streams and burning calves - the Amatola has it all! Known to be South Africa’s toughest “hutted hike”, it’s a great 6-day 100km adventure.

“I wish so badly I could tell you all where this is but it’s on private property. I have never seen water so crystal clear in my entire life. Just know that there’s some absolutely stunning places along the Magaliesberg mountain range.”

We often ask ourselves if we should promote pristine areas, being concerned about human impact. Low-footprint private conservancies are a great way to protect nature and spread the human impact ⛰🌳

"To wake up and have this view is truly an awesome experience! Admittedly, it was some time after waking up that it wasn't just a white wall of cloud we were looking at, but when the bank broke and the Cathedral spur emerged like a ship riding the waves of cloud, it was breathtaking!"

“Trekking to the Wolfberg Arch, Cederberg Wilderness area”

📸 @danscapephoto 

The other “arch” - it’s one of the best day hikes around, and attracting a lot of visitors. We have however received reports of up to 50 people camping at the arch per night, illegal camp fires being made and leaving lots of litter. The only way to keep this vulnerable area special is by keeping it pristine. Please adhere to the permit requirements and confront littering, fires etc. For some more thoughts on this, follow the link in our bio.

“The spectacular uKhahlamba Drakensberg Park in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, was awarded the status of a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2001. It offers scenic beauty, great hiking, world-renowned San (bushmen) rock art, and a spiritual atmosphere. The mountains exceed an average altitude of 3000 meters, forming the highest range in Africa south of Kilimanjaro.”
