MOUNTAIN BIKE TRAILS
The West Coast of South Africa is an unexpected canvas where culture, community, heritage, natural beauty, wine, food, luxury and adventure collide. We have combined a unique blend of these ingredients to offer a truly unique ‘slackpack’ experience.
There are few places in the world where one can walk for kilometers and not see another soul. Not to mention spectacular ocean views from paths above cliffs, unique coastal vegetation, an abundance of bird life as well as seasonal wildflowers, whales and dolphins. This is an all-year destination in which each season brings its own surprises.
The Crayfish Trail links a series of quaint coastal towns, nature reserves and noteworthy farms including:
Rocherpan, Elands Bay, Steenbokfontein, Lamberts Bay, Doring Bay, Big River Bend and Papendorp.
Each has its own unique story and something special to offer the intrepid explorer.
