The Guided David Lane Hiking Trail & Forest Walks
The environment along The David Lane Hiking Trail is unique in that it encompasses the best of both worlds – the beauty of the forest as well as pristine coastal shores. The trail traverses a very scenic landscape, never straying far from the shoreline.
Vegetation along the way is either fynbos, waterfalls, dense forest or open, rocky sections with an abundance of wildflowers. You’ll find a halfway picnic spot where you can enjoy a snack and the incredible views of the vast Indian Ocean.
The degree of difficulty is 3/5 – Achievable by all ages who live an active lifestyle and have a good level of walking fitness. The trip duration is 2.5 – 3 hours. The Garden Route is one of the best all year-round mild climates in the world. Our summers are comfortably warm and winter’s mild. Rainfall is low all year round.

Indigenous Forest Walk
A shorter option for the less athletic who wish to experience Tsitsikamma forest but not take part in the full day hike. Picnic baskets can be arranged for your enjoyment at the forest picnic spot, walk across a few bridges or enjoy the waterfall. Arrive at the meadows and absorb the breathtaking view of the ocean.
