Note:  The minimum group size is 8, and maximum 14.  Small groups will be combined if the same dates are booked.  Single rooms are limited with larger groups.  

Only selected dates are available to hike the Alikreukel Trail. (Please see the list of dates lower down).

We have selected the optimum tide dates for walking the trail.  This is for your comfort (not walking on soft sand during high tide) and to make the best use of what the coast offers – in tidal rock pools, seeing the fish traps and appreciating the coastal ecology.

Hiking dates:

Note:  Hikers must arrive the afternoon before the hike starts, and accommodated in Jongensfontein for that night is included in our tariff.
