It was a wonderful experience for body, psyche and soul. Being so close to the sea, on the beach, over the rocks, amongst the fynbos. The weather was excellent, our guide Chris very informative, respectful and kind. The accommodation excellent, the breakfasts / lunches / suppers very tasteful. The hosts were friendly and checked in regularly. I reflect back on the experience daily. We are already planning a next similar or repeat experience.

I would love to do this every month - it was spectacular. The accommodation was lovely, and it showcased some of the best coastal scenery in South Africa.

We are a group of 12 ladies who do a yearly hike over woman’s day in August and the Oystercatcher trail did not disappoint this year. Mia, Willem and our guide Georgia went out of their way for us; meeting us with champagne on the boat at Gouritzriver, adjusting the complete 4 day hike into 3 days and arranging a lovely warm lunch on day 2. Such attention to detail! For the more adventurous and fit I would definitely recommend changing the 4 days into 3 days (Mosselbaai to Gouritzriver). The distances are still very manageable (14 - 20km per day) and the scenery change between cliff-paths, sand and fynbos spectacular.

We took our two babies on this trail in their carriers and it was simply spectacular! From the long stretches of beach, to rocky coastlines and fynbos, it was a beautiful route and we loved taking our time to stop and let the little ones explore. To top it off, the owners of the trail Mia and Willem made an effort to welcome us, the old fisherman’s cottage was cozy, the food was something to look forward to at every meal and our guide Chris was exceptional! We would absolutely do this trail again and recommend it to anyone looking for pristine nature, calming landscapes and an interest in local fauna and flora.

Fresh air and great views combined with good company made for a much needed very relaxing hike. The accomodation was top class. Full breakfast and home cooked meals served every evening was a treat. Our guide Chris added local knowledge and shared interesting facts about the area and environment. The beach hikes are challenging on days when the tide is high mid morning. The final day's boat ride on the Gourits river is a real highlight.
