THE OTTER TRAIL

The Otter trail is officially the oldest and undoubtedly the most iconic hiking trail in South Africa. The trail, which runs along the spectacular coastline between the Storms River mouth and Nature’s Valley, was opened in 1968 and is considered one of the finest multi-day trails in the world. It is named after the shy, mostly nocturnal, Cape Clawless Otter which inhabits the estuaries and streams of the South African coast.

Process work

Clive and Pieter are tourism professionals and hiking enthusiasts. They are also fans of process work learned in the Entrepreneurs' Organization and the Mankind Project. As such, a gentle but powerful daily process of mindfulness and setting intention will be followed in the morning and evenings. This will require respecting technology abstinence at mealtimes and full engagement with the group work.
