Overview

The Dolphin Trail is a luxury and fully portered hiking or slackpacking trail along the Tsitsikamma coastline.  A beautiful part of the Garden Route. This unique trail allows you to sample some of the coastal scenery seen on the Otter Trail without the hardship of having to carry your own gear and sleep in basic huts!

The trail comprises a two day/3 night 17 km hike from Forest Ferns. Along the banks of the Sanddrif River, to the Storm’s River Mouth in the Tsitsikamma National Park. Trained field guides unlock the mysteries of nature and marine life to the walkers. It is called a slackpacking trail because all luggage is portered to the two overnight stays. So you only need to carry a daypack and binoculars.

The accommodation on the Dolphin Trail is of a particularly high quality with four star guesthouses and luxury retreats being used.

On route, many birds including the gorgeous Knysna Loerie can be heard and spotted while hiking through the forest. The endangered Oystercatcher is often to be seen on the shoreline. All walkers are encouraged to enjoy the walk, and not take it as a route march. Perhaps taking some time to cool off in the tidal pools of the Indian Ocean and explore them with snorkelling gear.

Note: We can arrange road transfers from both Port Elizabeth and George Airport.
