Garden Route – Easter Weekend Walks
ABOUT THE WALKING FESTIVAL
Welcome to the Garden Route where we love trails and love walking.
We are lucky to be in one of the world’s great walking destinations. With pristine beaches, rocky coastlines, amazing forests and mountain peaks. Home to our country’s most famous trails – the Otter Trail, the Tsitsikamma Trail and the Oystercatcher Trail to name a few.
Hi-Tec is synonymous with walking and hiking in South Africa, as naming partners they make it possible for us to offer this unique festival.
Many walks are FREE while the professionally guided walks carry a charge per person. A number of walks require an access permit.
Our dedicated team works hard to ensure you enjoy a fun and inspiring festival. Please do not hesitate to contact us for further info.

Coastal Clean-Up Walks
What it’s about
This year the festival is proud to be involved in driving 3 Coastal Clean-Up Walks.
Too much plastic and litter on our coast is not cool. This is a chance for walkers and lovers of the outdoors to give back and to help pick it up.
When & Where
Clean-Up Walk starts at 8:30 for 9:00 and takes place in Mossel Bay, Knysna and Nature’s Valley.
We have teamed up with Love Our Trails to help make this happen. Please volunteer and get involved.
What you need
Bring a spirit of fun. Gardening gloves or others – there are not always pleasant things to pick up when dealing with trash.
A sandwich or two, sun hat, water and a good backpack to help carry back what we pick up.
