The purpose of this site is to provide a way to find these personal hiking pages, and make your research easier.

  • Drakensburg Mountains Comprehensive site with facts, figures, links, photos, info, lodgings, camping...quite a site on the Drakensburg Mountains and Natal Midlands. Site by Andrew Attwood is more than just general touring -- quite in-depth, good site. The link here is not an endorsement.


  • Garden Route Trail this is another commercial site we'll gladly link to because of the helpful information concerning the Garden Route, a landscape of forest, river, wetlands, dunes and beaches between the Outeniqua Mountains and the Indian Ocean. The link here is not an endorsement.


  • General South Africa Trails and Hiking site. These look to largely be guided South African trails, marketed by Underberg Hideaways and Jacana Country Homes and Trails. Whether or not you are interested in a tour package type arrangment, this is a very informative site, maintained by Paul Colvin. The link here is not an endorsement.


  • Tsitsikama Hiking Trail 60-km, linear trail, beginning at Natures Valley and ending at the Storms River bridge or village. It journeys through the heart of the Tsitsikamma mountains where extensive patches of indigenous afromontane forest and mountain fynbos still occur. The mountains form the watershed for a myriad of streams and rivers, many of which are fountainheads for the wider, slower-flowing and magnificently sculptured rivers of the Tsitsikamma coast. Site is from an ecotourism outfit. The link here is not an endorsement.

There is more in us than we know. If we can be made to see it, perhaps, for the rest of our lives, we will be unwilling to settle for less.
