Green shell on the Perlemoen Trail

Trail Dates & Packages

Options to suit your preference & pocket

We offer 16 Perlemoen Trail dates each year during our trail season which runs from September through to June.  The vast majority of people join us for the full 4 days/4 nights of the trail, however it is possible to join us for just part of the 4 day trail depending on availability.

Our trail dates are chosen taking into consideration the best tide conditions for hikers’ comfort – we are the only coastal slackpacking trail in South Africa to choose our dates based on optimal hiking conditions.  Note if our trail dates don’t exactly suit your calendar, please contact me these dates are a little flexible.  

Group size on the trail can range from 6 hikers up to 12, If you book a large family and friends group of 10 or more hikers, your trail will be exclusive unless their is a prior booking.  Our pricing structure is on a sliding scale, a group of 2 hikers individually pay a little more than a group of 8, so the more hikers in your group booking, the better the price we can give you.


We offer two different overnight packages for hiking the Perlemoen Trail:
