Overview

The Oystercatcher Trail is a slackpacking walking tour on the Garden Route. Where you combine the joy of a multi-day hike without the struggle of having to carry all your own gear, cook your own evening meals and staying in basic walking huts.

This 4 night coastal trail is in the western part of the Garden Route. The 46km trail starts at St Blaize Point in Mossel Bay and heads west along a wild coastline to the Gouritz River Mouth. The tour has now changed so that they use one central base and transfer you to each days walk. So you only need to carry a daypack, binoculars and possibly swimming gear.

Along the way you take in archeological treasures, enjoy swimming stops on the sandy beaches. Spot the endangered African black oystercatcher and a diverse array of bird and marine life including dolphins and whales in season (July to November). You are guided by a trained and passionate walking guide who’s knowledgeable about the coast, its flora and its fauna.

This is not an arduous trail and is suitable for all of average fitness.
