The Oystercatcher Trail has to be one of South Africa’s most gorgeous east coast hikes starting at Mossel Bay on the Garden Route. It’s more than just a four-day, four-night 55-kilometre guided, slackpacker walk along a unique coastline.
It is also way to learn about the area’s geological, botanical and cultural history, not to mention the lovely accommodation, delicious home-cooked food and wine and a massage for weary bodies! And there’s the visit to the remarkable archaeological wonder that are the caves at the Point of Human Origin.
