What an incredible experience to walk along unspoiled parts of South Africa's magnificent coastline with the fantastic and knowledgeable Jason Stonehewer as your guide! As a group of thirtysomething city slickers we had a whale of a time and had a hard time to adjust to life back in the city after slackpacking in nature for four days in March... More

This wasn't just a walk along the beach - Jason, the guide, shared so much more with us about the environment and history of that area. Another highlight was that we were joined on 2 of the days by Kristof, another local guide with a specialist botanist knowledge. Apart from the fact that the scenery was breathtaking, we learned so... More

We did the 4 day trail, horter ones available, and well based at a 4 start Guesthouse in Pearly... More

Consider this as an option for a weekend away or when a friend comes into town. Jason, our guide, has developed a superior business model based on ethical eco-tourism that should be replicated everywhere in SA. Affordable experience and easy hiking on one of SA's most beautiful coastlines with creative incorporation of the community. Jason is authentic, organized, and extremely... More

My family of 5, including an 11-year old, 16- year old and 19-year old thoroughly enjoyed this guided nature/beach walk with Jason Stonehewer. The accommodation and meals were superb, with evening meals at colourful locations in Pearly Beach allowing us to soak up local culture. The walk along beautiful unspoilt beaches and nature reserved recharged my soul. Jason's commitment both... More

As a family of three we joined two other families on the Perlemoen trail led by Jason. The hike meanders along the sea shore for four days beginning at Die Dam and ending at Die Kelders near Gansbaai and was just under 50km in total. Jason is a passionate guide and we learnt many new things about our beautiful coastline.... More

Thoroughly enjoyable well organised 4 day hike. Jason is passionate about the environment with particular interest and knowledge in marine conservation. The walks were all interesting in different ways and Jason's enthusiasm for ecology of the area was infectious. We have done many hikes in South Africa and this was definitely one of the best.

Dear Jason, Can't believe that the Perlemoen Trail to which we have all looked forward for many months is now a thing of the past. Delighted of course to have completed the trail but in a way, almost wish it was something we could all still be looking forward to. However, thanks to you, your enthusiasm, your knowledge and your... More
