Hiking Trails of South Africa
Every major trail in South Africa is covered, with a clear description of each hike, its length and estimated time, plus information on hike accommodation, facilities and activities, such as abseiling and diving. Complete contact details for booking your hikes are listed under each entry. Whether you want to experience the beautiful, barren landscape of the Karoo, wander through Cape fynbos, see the wonderful birds and lush indigenous forests of the Garden Route, spot game on a wilderness hike in Mpumalanga, or go on a trail in the hiker's Mecca of the Drakensberg, you will find all the information you need in Hiking Trails of South Africa. The book is also a useful guide to selecting hiking equipment, staying safe on the trail and dealing with emergencies that may arise. In addition, there is a glossary of specialised terms that are used in the book and a handy section where you can record your own hiking experiences.
