Alexandria hiking trail

Hiking the two-day Alexandria Hiking Trail in Addo Elephant National Park is an unforgettable experience that
leads the hiker through three distinctly different environments ranging from forest to coastal dunes, to seashore.
No other trail in the country can boast this diversity, as you clamber up the desert-like dunes and stand aloft cliffs
crumbling into the sea, trek through high forest, and along spectacular beaches…

Strandloper hiking trail

Each section of the trail has been designed to reveal special aspects of our coastline so that you may capture a
complete Strandloper experience. The Strandloper Trail has been described as “the trail where you can savoir
the feeling of solitude on an unspoilt beach and down a bar, lunch in a cosy pub barely an hour later”. The trail is
almost 59 km in total and takes 4 days to complete. It is clearly marked with little painted white on green boot
prints and be be walked through the year. The best weather is between January and May which have warm
windless days.
