The Otter Trail hike is one of the more popular of South Africa’s many hiking trails. It is a five day trek starting at the Storms River Mouth Rest Camp and follows the coast for +/- 45km (+/- 28mi) towards the Groot River estuary at Nature’s Valley.
Situated entirely within the Tsitsikamma National Park, the Otter trail is both beautiful and challenging, definitely a worthwhile bucket list hike and worth the one year waiting list.
My Otter Trail experience was during the week of 13th to 17th February 2017, and what a wonderful experience it was. The weather was great and the hike, while challenging (Day 3 hurt me the most), very rewarding.
