George B&B Accommodation - Western Cape - South Africa

An experience that will last a lifetime!

South Africa's Otter Trail, winding through the Tsitsikamma forest and skirting the Garden Route's rugged coastline, is considered by most serious hikers as the best hiking trail in the country.
A five-day hike, the Otter Trail's incredibly diverse natural beauty - taking in the best of forest and coast, with a wide variety of fauna and flora on show - will make a huge impression on you.
The trail is 42km-long, most of it following cliff tops along the shoreline, 150m above the sea, returning to sea level for river crossings. Though not the most difficult hike in the country, it does require a fair level of fitness.
Hikers also need to be aware of the dates and times of high and low tides as it is all but impossible (and inadvisable) to attempt river crossings during high tide periods.
The trail starts from the Garden Route National Park's Storms River rest camp and day one is a relatively easy hike of 4.8km. Along the way is a large cave that is worth exploring, as is the majestic waterfall that follows.

 


This is the perfect adventure for holiday makers. With about a 170km drive from George Airport and the Tsitsikamma National Park, book your accommodation at Cosy-Corner Guest House in George, for the evening before venturing off on your hiking experience and again on your return to George five days later, for a peaceful night’s sleep and time to relax and catch your breeath before your departure flight the following day. Transport to and from George to the Tsitsikamma area can also be arranged. (Contact us for rates)
Make some memories to last a lifetime, and take a week to savour this beautiful part of the Western Cape.
