An affordable 3 night Slackpacking Trail
If exploring amazing beauty and nature with a degree of comfort at reasonable rates is your beat – then “The Crags to Coast” Slackpacking Trail is for you. This easy-does-it trail, facilitated by The Green Ticket, explores The Crags and Nature’s Valley routes known only to locals familiar with the SANParks De Vasselot Section of the Garden Route National Park, from an overnight base at Tenikwa, accommodated in semi-luxury units in The Suites.
Apart from the unbelievable beauty of walking through indigenous evergreen forests, the trail wanders to pristine beaches on old “Strandlooper”trails where midden evidence shows human presence dating back as far as 20,000 years, and even older Stone Age axe relics abound on certain prominent ridges.
On the afternoon of arrival, Tenikwa will introduce their Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre to you and perhaps entice you to become a “Friend of Tenikwa”. The Green Ticket will answer questions about the following days hiking programme, terrain and Fauna and Flora to expect, and furthermore will talk about the concept of Carbon Capture Mitigation through not only Reforestation but also the importance of grasslands in Carbon Dioxide storage for a healthy biotic environment and your support of a local plant Nursery affiliated with The Green Ticket Nurseries.
