The Tsitsikamma Hiking Trail
Av Hiking Time: 7 hours.
Highlights: Beautiful views.
Be prepared for: Steep climbs.
This would also be considered to be one of the toughest days. Be prepared for a long day on your feet climbing two major saddles.
The crossing at Witteclip River marks the halfway point of the hike just before you start the acsent of the second saddle. Although often windy, the second saddle has an amazing view and is definitely worth a break from your backpack - so make you stop and take it all in.
You can see the final nights hut and Storms River Gorge from this vantage point. You may curse at how much further it is to go on your tired feet but the final two kilometres in indigenous forest will take your mind off the pain and the Sleepkloof hut has one of the best views of all.
Tips for Day 5:
- One of the longer days on your feet - be prepared.
- One of the most beautiful days too so keep your camera within easy reach.
- Enjoy the final night with your fellow hikers whilst you soak in the magnificent view from Sleepkloof Hut.
