The Tsitsikamma Hiking Trail
Av Hiking Time: 6 hours.
Highlights: Beautiful views. Swimming at Heuningbos hut.
Be prepared for: Steep climbs and descents.
The day starts with a beautiful walk through tall fynbos before heading up the mountain into the clouds. This is quite a long day on your feet as you traverse numerous valleys and peaks.
The valleys are mostly populated with indigenous forest which is nice and cool to hike through. As you climb, this turns to fynbos and may be quite windy and often offers little shade so make sure you keep your hat handy.
Tips for Day 4:
- Be prepared for some steep climbs and descents (but the views make up for it).
- If you get the Heuningbos hut early enough, there is a river very close by with some excellent swimming spots.
