OTTER TRAIL CHECK OUT
Please note that Sanparks now requires you to sign out after the final days hike. You do this at the Natures Valley Rest Camp (which adds an extra 4 scenic kilometers onto the old route).
Sections of the Otter Trail are covered in foam. Thought to be a result of the recent red tide, hikers have quite a challenge following the trail.
"I was the only one who got my camera out, the rest was packed away in waterproof bags. The next photo was taken when I was out of the foam and the rest near the end. The actual “chain” dissolved by then. A rope would have helped, but not much as we helped each other to balance on the rocks underneath."
