Moderate

Grade 5

Overview

Holiday Highlights

  • Walk remote, untouched beaches teeming with wildlife and history.
  • Hike two of South Africa’s more iconic trails.
  • Savour fresh seafood dinner whilst on the dramatic wild coast.
  • Enjoy a wildlife game drive in search of the Big Five.

This holiday combines two of South Africa’s top hiking trails, the Wild Coast Meander and the Oyster Catcher Trail, with a visit to the Tsitsikamma National Park in between. This all provides an incredible insight into some of South Africa’s ancient history. We walk in areas that have revealed the earliest evidence of human existence, and showcase the beauty of pristine nature, with some of the finest views you are likely to encounter anywhere in the country. On these scenically spectacular walks you will discover varied coastal walking, exciting river crossings and resident wildlife.

We arrive in Cape Town, home to iconic Table Mountain, where we stay for two nights and discover the city sights. Then we fly to East London on the Indian Ocean coast and travel by road to our first hiking trail, The Wild Coast Meander, a 35 mile, five day duration hike that runs along a remote and untouched coast line. The long empty beaches and river estuaries abound with marine life and provide an unsurpassed tranquility.

Our next base is the Tsitsikamma National Park; we stay here two nights and explore the most beautiful indigenous forest. Located between the sea and mountains, it is a place flowing with water, full of lush vegetation, wildlife and spectacular waterfalls. No wonder they call it the Garden of the Garden Route!

Heading further west we arrive at Mossel Bay to start The Oyster Catcher Trail. Our expert guides here will tell us all about the edible and medicinal plants, take us to visit some Khoi San relics and show us how to identify tracks left in the sand. The earliest dated evidence of modern man has been discovered in one of the caves here. On our last day, we end on a high, as we head off for the thrilling wildlife experience of on an afternoon game drive in the Garden Route Game Park, and an opportunity to view the Big Five.

Tsitsikamma River Lodge

Tsitsikamma Lodge & Spa is a truly splendid lodge set against the foothills of the Tsitsikamma Mountain range and is sheltered by the forest fringe.

Blending in with the surroundings and built entirely of wood. When we are not out walking, there are a wide range of recreational amenities offered at the lodge, including swimming pool, lounge/games room, bird watching, mountain stream swimming or take an invigorating walk on one of the many trails.

There is no swimming pool but lovely natural pools available for swimming along the beach.

Trip Information

All the details you need

Holiday Grade

This is a grade 5 walking holiday where we can expect full days of walking of up to 6 hours. The walking on this holiday is varied as some days we will be walking on sand, some days we'll walk on rocks smoothed by the ocean, and other days we’ll be walking along well-defined paths through forests. Some walks will take us high up on ridges overlooking the ocean.  We also have some river crossings serviced by canoes and a ferry.  The maximum height reached on this holiday is our ascent to Table Mountain 1085m by cable car.  The ascents and descents can be up to 750m. Some of the walks may be less demanding but equally as rewarding.

Walks & Excursions

The walking is quite varied. Some days we will be walking on sand, some days on rocks smoothed by the ocean and other days on well-defined paths through forests and high up on ridges overlooking the ocean. We also have some river crossings serviced by canoes and a ferry. 

Local Transport Costs

All local transport costs in conjunction with the advertised activity programme are included in the holiday cost. There may be occasions where additional visits or excursions are added to enrich your experience, these will be paid for locally by you if you choose to participate. Local transport can be a mix of private hire coaches, taxis, local buses and ferries depending on the itinerary.

Optional Excursions

A range of local excursions and activities may be available to book at your destination through a local operator. We have no involvement in such activities or excursions which are not run, supervised or controlled in any way by us. Your contract will be with the local activity supplier and we accept no responsibility for their actions or omissions.

Spending Money

Holiday Budgeting

All organised excursions mentioned in the itinerary are included in the holiday cost. 

There is very little additional cost to be paid locally in regards to the noted itinerary, however if you wish to take any optional excursions, or visit sites not mentioned, these will be at your own expense.It is difficult to estimate an allowance for spending money, however about £250-£300 for the trip should be sufficient for lunches, drinks, any optional excursions. 

Please also see our section on tipping which will be in addition to this.

Hotel drinks, particularly imported spirits can be more expensive, but local spirits, beers, ciders and African wines are very good value for money. You will need to allow extra for souvenirs and gifts. Major purchases can often be charged to a credit card account.

Currency in South Africa

The currency used in South Africa is the South African Rand (ZAR).

Tipping

Although entirely at your own discretion, tipping is an important aspect of tourism and hospitality life and expectations are fairly high.  In order to simplify tipping, we strongly recommend that you allow your leader to take care of making sure tips are given to hotel and restaurant staff & to local guides and drivers. This will be done using some funds provided by us together with, if you wish, a contribution from you, which he/she will collect during the holiday.

Staying Healthy On Holiday

Health requirements can change at any time. It is your own responsibility to ensure that you inform yourself from a professionally qualified source on, and comply with, such requirements at least 6 to 8 weeks before departure. Advice on vaccinations is available from your GP.

Health Advice for South Africa

No compulsory immunisations are required for visits to South Africa.

Further Travel Advice

For further advice please visit:

You might wish to take a small bottle of antibacterial hand gel with you for times when you're unable to wash your hands.

Travel Insurance

You must be adequately insured to join our holidays. We do not insist that you insure with us but we require that you are adequately insured for the nature of your holiday. You will be unable to participate in our local walking and other activity programmes without being able to demonstrate that you have valid travel insurance.

Please ensure that as a minimum your travel insurance policy covers you for travel to your holiday destinations (country and geographical region) and for medical expenses, mountain rescue (including helicopter rescue) and emergency repatriation to your home country in the event of illness or injury. Your policy should also provide adequate cover for the activities, included and optional, you are likely to participate in during your holiday.

See our brochure or website for further advice regarding holiday insurance.

Whoever you insure with, please ensure that you take full details, and ideally the policy itself, with you on holiday and provide our tour leader with your insurer's name, the policy number and emergency assistance contact numbers.

Please note that it is very difficult to obtain travel insurance once your holiday arrangements have started.

Extra Insurance

Please note that not all insurances are the same and some include more options than others. We are walking in very rural areas on this holiday and hospitals may be some distance away. When purchasing your travel insurance please make sure that it includes full medical evacuation cover.

Please make sure your insurance for this holiday covers you for guided walking below 2000m.

Personal Safety

The UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office provides up to date information on security and local laws for travellers, together with current passport and visa information, at www.gov.uk/travelaware. Please take a few minutes to look at the current advice on your planned destination.

Please be aware of what's going on around you, take sensible precautions with your credit cards and passport and avoid displays of wealth such as wearing expensive jewellery or watches. Do not carry more cash on you than you will need for each day, and we recommend that a money belt is used.

Cultural Awareness

Responsible Travel

We're committed to ethical tourism in all our destinations. Our holidays are designed for you to discover the essence of the country you are visiting. Travelling in small groups not only gives you an up close and personal experience of your destination, but minimises your impact on the immediate environment. We feel that the most important starting point to protect the environment is to be out in it. For more details visit our website.

The Ramblers Holidays Charitable Trust

Unlike many tour operators we have our own trust through which RWH Travel’s profits are channelled back into a variety of outdoor, walking-related or environmental conservation projects in the UK. The focus of the Trust’s financial support is Britain’s leading walking charity, The Ramblers, and their role in promoting the benefits and importance of walking to the British public. In addition the Trust welcomes applications for small grants from local organisations in the UK who need support for walking-orientated activities. This includes the establishment of footpaths and bridleways, funding for rebuilding bridges and renovating huts, as well as bursary funding for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award for children who could not otherwise afford to do it. Please visit the ‘About Us’ section of our website and click on the Charitable Trust link for more details.

Heart and Sole

We appreciate that we are in a fortunate position to be able to use our profits to help make a difference to people's lives. Heart & Sole is a venture managed by our office staff, whose aim is to reach the heart of the communities in the countries we visit. Through Heart & Sole, we hope to make more of a long term, direct impact to these communities, particularly in less developed countries where even a small amount goes a long way. See our website for more information and details of some of the projects we support.

Staying In Touch

Mobile Phones

Please do provide us with a mobile phone contact number. We will only use this to contact you with important information relating to your holiday arrangements. 

Do keep your mobile phones switched on and readily available when travelling to the airport or if delayed in transit so that we can contact you with any last minute information relating to your travel arrangements.  

As a matter of courtesy, please switch off your mobile phone during walks, or endeavour to minimise its use. Please also try to minimise the use of mobile devices during group meals.
