The 5 day walking trail was the best experience of our 3 1/2 weeks in South Africa. Despite mixed weather a flexible approach ensured we got the best of the walks on appropriate days. Beaches, Forests, Riversides.....perfect. Thought I might lose weight on this one but the picnics and Mark's cooking were so good I gained weight!
Excellent accommodation. Mark's knowledge is endless as is his passion for the area.
If you can only spare a day contact Mark and see if he's free. You won't regret it.

I did the 5 day coastal hike on the Garden route trail with Mark Dixon.
Mark knows everything there is to know about the whole area, all that you hear, all that you see, animals, ground, sea, plant life. It seemed like wonderful experiences never stopped for the full five days of the trip. Marks family contributed to the great experience by beeing wonderfully hospitable.
Your suitcase is brought from place to place so you only carry your lunch and drinking water with you. Check out the website for a description of the hike.
