How does it work?

This is slackpacking at its best over four days and four nights in the com­pany of ex­pert guides. Group size is re­stricted to 14 peo­ple. Just bring your hik­ing shoes, a walk­ing stick, your cam­era, binoc­u­lars and a day­pack. Ev­ery­thing else is cov­ered: ac­com­mo­da­tion, all meals, en­trance fees to na­ture re­serves and trans­port from one trail to the next. We’ll even col­lect you and drop you off at the Plet­ten­berg Bay air­port if you fly in. CemAir of­fers daily flights to Plett from Cape Town and Joburg.

Where do I stay?

There are two ac­com­mo­da­tion op­tions: Stay in lodges or camp with us – two nights at Diep­walle For­est and two nights next to the Keur­booms River. We pro­vide spa­cious can­vas tents with stretch­ers, linen and tow­els. Each camp­site has good ablu­tion fa­cil­i­ties. Glamp­ing costs R8 950 per per­son shar­ing; R11 635 sin­gle rate. The lodge op­tion costs R10 950 per per­son shar­ing; sin­gle sup­ple­ment costs an ad­di­tional 30 %. You’ll stay in se­lect three- and four-star coun­try lodges in the Plett and Crags ar­eas. Day 1: Meet up at the Diep­walle camp­site late in the af­ter­noon and en­joy sup­per around the camp­fire.

Day 2: Guide Mea­gan Ver­maas will lead you on the Cir­cles in the For­est trail. Af­ter­wards, you’ll have lunch at Tot­ties in Rhee­nen­dal and take a walk through the Diep­walle For­est.

Day 3: To­day, you’ll hike from Na­ture’s Val­ley to Keur­boom­strand, stop­ping half­way for lunch at For­est Hall. While you’re walk­ing, the camp will be moved to Keur­booms River.

Day 4: An­other full day of guided hik­ing in the coastal for­est and along the beach on the beau­ti­ful Kran­shoek Trail just west of Plet­ten­berg Bay.

Day 5: Rob­berg is on the menu to­day, and so is a fi­nal pic­nic lunch be­fore we say good­bye.*
