Swart Tobie Coastal Trail
Koekenaap, Western Cape
Coastal trails have always been popular with the hiking fraternity and there are several to be found along the Southern Africa coast. Kosi Bay, Mziki and Emoyeni at St Lucia, Otter Trail, Dolphin Trail are just some that come to mind. A recent addition to the list is the Swart Tobie trail that traverses the beautiful Atlantic coastline, north of Cape Town
The Swart Tobie (Red Beak Oyster Catcher) Trail is about 4 hours traveling time by road from Cape Town and close to the small town Vredendal. The trail is 92 km long over a period of 5 days. The days are quite long but your equipment is transported for you from camp site to camp site, leaving you to walk with a day pack, enabling you to accomplish the distances in adequate time. This is a wilderness trail and therefore a certain amount of experience is needed.
Most of us love and have a certain affinity with the sea and love the coastal hikes. This is a welcome addition to growing list of trails that stretch along our beautiful coastline. Whales are often seen close insure as they hunt for their food in one of the richest fish areas in the world.
