Have you a love of the great outdoors? Do canoeing and hiking interest you?

The Eastern Cape offers plenty of opportunity for hiking and canoeing enthusiasts – but an offering that has caught my eye recently are the three trails marketed by a company called Shipwreck Hiking and Canoe Trails (www.shipwreckhiking.co.za).   The Kleinemonde West River Canoe Trail features a 9km paddle up river and a 2km hike through the Nyala Valley Game Reserve where you will overnight at the delightfully named Lily Pad hut. The other two hiking options are a 5 day, 4 night option or a 6 day, 5 night option, the latter which will include the Kleinemonde West River Canoe Trail described above.  The coastal hikes are from Port Alfred to the Fish River Mouth – hiking along the beach, over dunes, through farmlands and riverine forest.  Your nights will be spent at Milkwood hut, Tree House, Three Sisters hut and Stone Cottage.   Check out their website and contact Dave Marais for more information.   With Spring and Summer just round the corner – why not plan a fun few days with family and friends in the great outdoors.   Its birdlife, its wildlife, its history, its exercise, its comraderie……
