Looking back on 2018

A year in review


Hiking South Africa is only 1 year old, but already we can see that the South African hiking community is alive and kicking and growing at a healthy rate. Here are some stats from 2018.

Total website traffic

In 2018, Hiking South Africa had a total of 88 973 unique visitors from all over South Africa, as  well as a few thousand international visitors, which resulted in 466 655 pageviews. We’re very excited to see an almost 50/50 gender split in our audience, with 53.4% female and 46.6% male.


We posted a total of 134 articles in 2018, broken up in the following categories:

  • News & Articles: 24
  • Videos: 40
  • Gear Reviews: 13
  • Trails: 57

Community forum

Our Community Forum is sitting at 470 members, and in 2018 we saw 119 new topics discussed. As a free resource to the hiking community of South Africa, we hope to see it being used by more hikers in 2019.

Thanks for all your comments, input and enthusiasm and a special big thank you to those of you who submitted content for publishing!

All the best for 2019! Happy hiking and be safe out there!
