Directions to The Dolphin Trail
The stunning Dolphin Trail is a highly popular hiking trail in the Garden Route’s Tsitsikamma region. Whilst trekking along the lush and green Tsitsikamma coastal area, whales and dolphins can often be spotted by hikers.
This glorious and unique Garden Route hiking trail is only possible because of the formation of a partnership between the Tsitsikamma National Park and two private sector partners, Fernery Lodge & Chalets and Misty Mountain Reserve.
The Fernery Lodge & Chalet’s excellent 4 day Dolphin Trail Package offers a great way for hikers to enjoy this delightful walk along one of the most picturesque stretches of coastline in the Garden Route, whilst spending 3 nights in wonderful luxurious accommodation along the way.
The 17km trail starts in the unrivalled beauty of the Tsitsikamma National Park at Storms River Mouth. It then winds its way eastwards through natural fynbos and pristine indigenous forest, over rugged rocks at the waters’ edge, to end on the banks of the Sandrift River at The Fernery. Hikers on the Dolphin Trail will have stunning views of the rugged Tsitsikamma coastline, and the chances of spotting whales, dolphins and the occasional otter are good. En-route, many birds including the gorgeous Knysna Loerie can be heard and spotted while hiking through the forest, and the endangered Oystercatcher is often seen along the Garden Route shoreline. Swimming and snorkelling in the rock pools is also possible at the discretion of the guides.
The 4 day Dolphin Trail Package is fully inclusive and features the following :
- All meals, from dinner on the day of arrival, to breakfast on the day of departure
- Well trained and knowledgeable local guides
- A 4x4 drive through the old Storms River Pass
- The transportation of all luggage by vehicle between overnight stops so that guests need hike only with a light pack containing a few personal items
