What a fantastic 5 day hiking trip in superb scenery hosted and organised by a well run company in good accommodation and good food. The best 70th birthday present to myself I could ever have imagined. Hiking is strenuous but very doable and really enjoyed every minute. Would highly recommend it.

An Amazing , and awesome experience of five days of hiking. The beauty of the forest was breathtaking and the hospitality of our hosts at Protea Wilds & 20 Good Summers was tops.

I recently had the opportunity to hike the Plett Camino but was very apprehensive to go on my own, not knowing anyone else. Little did I know that this would enrich my experience so much more. The Plett Camino really is the perfect blend of physical activity, cultural enrichment and wildlife. The route was well organised taking you through diverse landscapes from lush forests to rolling hills with the added highlight of wine tasting at two quant vineyards in the region. Being able to unwind and savour the most DELICIOUS cheese boards while we learnt all about the wine making process. The accommodation was just as diverse as the landscape with every place unique in its own way. We even had a short game drive through the reserve which felt like a true safari experience.I highly recommend this hike to anyone needing to push that ‘reset’ button.Thank you Iain and your Plett Camino team for an awesome experience!

What an incredible five days. Iain and his amazing team arranged this with such sensitivity to the walks and the beautiful places we rested at. The accommodation was exceptional and superb food to add to the experience. The views and walks were sublime. A really worthwhile five days in one of South Africa’s most scenic areas.

A wonderful 5 days discovering a Plett I never knew existed - the route took us through forests, little known trails, up steep climbs and down into beautiful valleys. Breaks in the vegetation give you surprise views, and every day holds something different. The accommodation each night is so different and every place offered something special. Highly recommended - switch off your phone, listen to the forest, enjoy the evening drinks and meals... and reconnect with yourself and your fellow walkers.

The Plett Camino Hiking Trail was a happy adventure, in some beautifully remote areas around Plettenberg Bay. Each day’s walking was well planned, safely guided and paced. A really worthwhile five days in such a special corner of the Garden Route.
