A walk of no ordinary proportion

The Rim of Africa is South Africa’s first long distance hiking trail, and when I say long, I am not joking. This magnificent trail stretches from The Cederberg Mountains on the Capes West coast to the Outeniqua Mountains on the Garden route. The entire distance covered is 650km with a minimum of 48 days being recommended for the entire walk.

Of course, most people won’t have the time (or the legs) to do the whole distance. So you can do shorter stretches in whatever region you fancy. The first leg from Pakhuis Pass in the Cederberg  to Turret Peak in the Koue Bokkeveld is now open and you are able to book onto scheduled trips in October.

Doing a multiday hiking trail is an opportunity to really get away and commune with nature. Relax and reconnect with yourself and your friends. This hiking trail is an opportunity of a life time.

I won’t be able to make it this year but before I am 50, I will have completed the entire trail. (It is number 1 on my list)
