We took the 5km hike which is really nice if you don't spend too much time hiking or if you don't want to rush the robberg tour (you should be back before 2pm so if you want to take the big tour you better start early or don't take to many breaks taking pictures). The landscape is one of the... More

The scenery is wonderful - and with a bit of a walk you leave feeling great, simple as that. If you are that way inclined the birds and vegetation offer abundance too! Consider a picnic on either of the beaches too

Definitely not for the faint-hearted, this walk is just breathtaking... and sometimes quite literally too! It can be steep, rugged, and at times you wonder where it is all leading to, but just stop and look around you: you won't see many views like this again. And keep your eyes (and ears) out for the seals- they are there in... More

My family did the 5.5km walk. It was a hike, but we managed it in 2 hours, stopping to take in the views and take photos. I definitely wouldn't recommend going at mid day as it can get very hot. Make sure to take some water with you. Even if you are not up to the walk, it's worth the... More

Wear your hiking shoes and always bring a rain jacket - can get slippery when wet! Lookout for the amazing geological formations, it is quite unique! You can choose your walking routes, some of them are chilled and others push the heart rate up. The scenery is beautiful and the Island well-preserved. A must to do when in Plett. Get... More

We only had a few days on the Garden Route but we were so glad that we included the Robberg Peninsula in our schedule. You can trek sections of it but you'll be missing out on an exceptional experience if you don't do the whole hike - it's not difficult but it does take about 4 hours at an average... More
