Multi-day Trails

South Africa is hiking country.

There are many multi-day and overnight hiking trails and trekking routes in various parts of South Africa. These range from full backpack treks where you need to carry everything including food and bedding for the duration of the hike, to complete ‘slackpacking’ where your every whim is catered for. We focus on the later, although in time we will feature some of the most iconic backpacking trails.

    please let me know how about going about booking this hike. I am keen to do it the weekend of the 18 feb – 19 Feb 2012 or 25 feb – 26 feb 2012 for a party of 12.

    • Hi Anneline – can you let me know which of the overnight trails you were looking at. Some of the trails are longer than a weekend. If you are in Cape Town then the Table Mountain Trail, either two days / one night or two days / two nights is the most likely option.
