8 March 2021 - 30 November 2021


No more start dates are available for 2020 as we are fully booked
Please note changes for 2021:

We have decided to limit trail bookings to the Autumn and Spring seasons for 2021. As such trail bookings are open as from 8 March - 8 June and 1 September - 30 November. We will be limiting bookings to 3 groups a week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday start dates). A couple of changes to the product for 2021 is that we will not be adding the coastal add on and unfortunately the Grootbos lunch at the end of the trail is not available. We will also not be mixing any groups for 2021.

Total hiking distance for standard trail is 25 km
Day 1 is a three hour walk that covers 6.6 kilometres from Steynsbos to Fountain Bush Cottage at Grootbos Environmental Centre, Fynbos Retreat
Day 2 is a 11 km walk that takes most of the day and takes hikers from the first overnight at Fynbos Retreat to the second overnight at Witkrans
Day 3 is a 9 km walk that takes about four hours from Witkrans to the finish at Steynsbos
