Thinking about going hiking? Well, hiking has become the new ‘banana bread’ as we’ve parted with the kitchen and embraced nature. Getting some fresh air and exercise is important, and here are three areas we’d recommend you go hiking with your new Thule bag:
Table Mountain National Park (CT) Although the majority of the hiking trails are open during lockdown, certain areas in the park remain closed ― including all picnic sites― with some restrictions. Choose from coastal walks to strenuous summit hikes that range from 2km to 14km with amazing views.
Modderfontein Reserve (JHB) This 275-hectare private park is made up of dams, grassland, hills and the Modderfontein Spruit and offers various hiking trails. The indigenous fauna and flora and beautiful views add to the not-to-be-disappointed day out.
Giba George MTB Park (Durban) Access three different hiking trails – a 5km, an 8km and an 11km trail – at this Mountain Bike and Adventure Park, which is nestled in a lush green valley. You’ll hike towards beautiful waterfalls and there’s even the early Rock Shelter, which predates all modern history in the area.
