Coastal Day Add on rates

Total hiking distance for the coastal section is 9km, and takes about 4 hours.

It is recommended that this part of the route is done at the start of the trail.

Hikers will arrive at their guest house from where they will be transferred to the Drup Kelders, where they will get a guided tour of these amazing caves, followed by a walk back along the coast to the accommodtion. The following day the route takes hikers along the Klipgat Trail on the De Kelders coastline overlooking Walker Bay. The rocky cliffs at De Kelders are amongst the very best places in the World to view magnificent Southern Right Whales (June to December). The route includes Die Plaat and Duiwelsgat and Klipgat caves. The trail will then link up to the start of the Fynbos Trail.

Full slackpacking - R1550 (includes overnight accommodation in De Kelders, dinner, breakfast, morning tea, lunch, Permit fees for Walker Bay Nature Reserves, transfer to Growing the Future, luggage transfers and guide)

NB: This section can not be done without a guide as it is very difficult to find your way through the unmarked dune fields.
