November’s free wall paper calendar features the Otter Trail. Capped by Storms River Mouth on one end and Nature’s Valley on the other, the Otter Trail is South Africa’s favourite beachcombing walk. A 41km hike spread over 5 days (4 nights); the Otter Trail is widely regarded as one of the finest trails in the world. As such, it is best to book well in advance if you’re looking to experience a beach trek like no other.
“The Otter Trail traverses an extremely scenic landscape, never straying far from the shoreline, but often climbing steeply and then descending to the beach or a river crossing. Vegetation along the way is either fynbos, dense gallery forest or open, rocky sections near the sea with an abundance of wildflowers.” – Source: Wikipedia.
It’s best to do the Otter Trail in the summer months (December – March) and you’ll need to be reasonably fit as you’ll be swimming across rivers and carrying your own gear.

For most South Africans the Otter Trail is best reached by self-drive, but for those further away George Airport and Port Elizabeth Airport are the closest airports serving the Tsitsikamma National Park region.
