These breath-taking trails wind through Fynbos, magical coastal forest, along the rocky shoreline of the Indian Ocean in the Tsitsikamma National Park and a short section of Pine plantation can be experienced. The location of the trails promises hikers only the best hiking experience.
On each of our Trails there is a steep decent to the coastline and at the end of the hike a seemingly never-ending climb back to the top.
A large section of the trail takes hikers along the rocky coastline of the Tsitsikamma Forest making the trail technically challenging. There are lots of loose rocks, rock hopping and ups and downs to negotiate. Also if heights, narrow paths, wooden ladders and bridges are not your cup of tea this is not the hiking trail for you. But if that sounds like the adventure you would like, we promise our hikers a world class hiking experience.
This dramatic landscape requires a moderate level of skill and fitness from hikers. Hikers with joint or back problems should consult their doctors before booking the trail.
Please note that these are Adventure Hiking Trails and not your typical hiking trails. These Garden Route hiking trails require a qualified guide with the necessary medical training. The Cadeau Adventure Trails offers 2 one-day hiking trails in the Garden Route's Tsitsikamma coastal forests and shoreline.
Please book at least 2-4 days in advance for the guided trail.
