Welcome to the Garden Route where we love trails and love walking.

Hi-Tec is synonymous with walking and hiking in South Africa. Together for the last 6 years, we are proud to offer visitors and locals alike SA’s only walking festival.

The Garden Route is home to our country’s most famous trails – the Otter Trail, the Tsitsikamma Trail and the Oystercatcher Trail to name a few.

Our dedicated team is working hard to ensure you enjoy a fun and inspiring festival in 2021. Read the FAQs below and contact us if you have any questions. 



This festival encourages us to get outdoors over the long  weekend, to discover amazing places and meet fellow hiking and walking enthusiasts. 

In 2021 the festival has chosen to support trails and trail maintenance. We have a list of Trail Projects your donations will support. Caring for our trails is caring for our tourism and preserving walkable routes in our beautiful region.

Great Hi-Tec prizes to be won for those who attend certain walks.



“This was a well organised festival with a tremendous variety
of walks in some of the most beautiful scenery anywhere.

It is well worth travelling to the Garden Route for a few days
to experience its wonders.”
– Robert K Berry
