The Dolphin Trail constitutes three partners:The Tsitsikamma National Park, Misty Mountain Reserve and The Fernery at Forest Ferns.The two day trail covers a distance of 17km along the pristine Tsitsikamma coastal belt, a narrow plateau sandwiched between the Tsitsikamma mountains and the Indian Ocean. All baggage is portered to the overnight destinations, allowing hikers of all ages to experience the unrivalled beauty of the wilderness area on foot. The three nights are spent in 4 star, luxury accommodation, beginning at Storms River Mouth, winding its way eastward, through natural fynbos, under pristine indigenous forest, over rugged rocks at the ocean's edge, and ending at the Sanddrift River.
Hikers 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(turaco) can be heard and spotted while hiking through the forest, and the endangered Oystercatcher is often to be seen on the shoreline. Swimming and snorkelling in the rock pools is possible at the discretion of the guides.
