Tip Trails

Come and join us to enjoy nature in all its glory as we walk along the coast from the Atlantic to the Indian ocean around the Southern Tip of Africa. With its ever changing landscape, including the lichen encrusted rock formations, colourful rocky shores, white beaches and sand dunes, this will be a memorable experience that will last a lifetime…

This is a region that abounds in cultural and natural heritage. Explore the sites of ancient civilizations, fish traps, shell middens, shipwrecks, abundance of fauna and flora, that includes many medicinal plant species and a birders paradise. This is a golden opportunity to escape the madness and really connect with nature in this pristine environment on the southern tip of the African continent.
