South Africa Slack Packing Destinations

The best way to explore South Africa’s many beautiful locations is on foot. Fortunately, numerous options are offered around the South Africa. Slackpacking routes traverse the Drakensberg, Outeniqua, Overberg, Tsitsikamma and Cederberg mountains. They follow coastal trails, along the Wild Coast and Garden Route, criss-cross the Karoo and explore fynbos areas in the heart of the Cape Floral Region.

Depending on where your chosen route takes you, you may experience lush wetlands, wildlife, whale sightings, tumbling waterfalls, indigenous forests, open bushveld and rugged mountains.

Your main luggage is transported ahead each day so that you can enjoy the walk carrying only a light daypack.

Slack packing operators ensure that your experience is complete with historical and cultural elements that are included along the route. And then, at the end of a day spent outdoors, you get to rest and recharge at an accommodation venue with a hot shower, home-cooked meal and a glass of wine, and a good sleep in a comfortable bed.

Slack packing is an increasingly popular way to explore spectacular landscapes and immerse yourself in a place. This wonderful way of hiking allows you travel light and enjoy an active, outdoor holiday with all the important comforts.
