The Dolphin Trail (Multi day hiking trips) -34.024351, 23.947802     For those hikers who have done the Otter Trail in their younger days but now seek more comfort, you can enjoy the unrivalled beauty and luxury of the Dolphin Trail.

The trail covers a distance of 17km between the Garden Route National Park Tsitsikamma Section at Storms River Mouth, and winds its way eastwards through natural fynbos and pristine indigenous forest, over rugged rocks at the waters edge, to end on the banks of the Sandrift River at The Fernery.

The package is fully catered for, includes trained local guides, a 4×4 drive through the old Storms River Pass, and hikers only carry a light pack. The rugged Tsitsikamma coastline, the chances of spotting whales, dolphins and the occasional otter are on the menu. En route, many birds including the gorgeous Knysna Loerie can be heard and spotted while hiking through the forest, and the endangered Oystercatcher is often to be seen on the shoreline. Swimming and snorkelling in the rock pools is possible at the discretion of the guides.
