Step out in na­ture

Getaway (South Africa) - - Escape -

This year’s Gar­den Route Walk­ing Fes­ti­val is adding three coastal clean-up walks (in Mos­sel Bay, Knysna and Na­ture’s Val­ley) to the list of op­tions, and night-time talks about the area’s best trails, hik­ing gear, con­ser­va­tion and more. Walks range from easy one-hour strolls to full-on full-day ad­ven­tures, tak­ing in a range of in­ter­ests – wildlife (yes, in­clud­ing the elu­sive ele­phants), birds, trees, sea crea­tures, mind­ful­ness, art, po­etry, his­tory and cul­ture. You can also see how Pledge Na­ture Re­serve, in the cen­tre of Knysna town, is re­gen­er­at­ing af­ter the fire. It’s all free, but do make a do­na­tion to one of the NGOs that help con­serve this beau­ti­ful re­gion. 30 March – 2 April. walk­ingfes­ti­val.co.za
