Active travel for the active at heart

Wherever you go in the world, there are always opportunities to get active. In Africa, we’re blessed with some of the most scenic and picturesque hikes and climbs of them all. The good thing: for many of these, you don’t have to be an athlete. Explore Africa on foot, and you’ll get to know it.

Travel ideas for the active explorer

Take it easy on leisurely hikes or give it your all on your way to the very top

Hiking the Tok Tokkie Trail

Hiking the Tok Tokkie Trail

Sleep under the open sky.

Hiking the Tok Tokkie Trail

What a magical experience! Explore the desert on foot and see, feel and hear how it comes to life. It’s a leisurely and short 3-day hike but will be a highlight to any Namibia trip. Walk over rolling hills and smaller sand dunes before taking a seat at your dinner table under the vast Namibian sky. Cuddle up in your sleeping bag and be dazzled by the millions of stars in the sky.

Why we love Hiking the Tok Tokkie Trail:

You sleep on raised field-beds, out in the open. No tent, no walls, just a comfy bed under the Namibian sky. If this is not an adventure, we don’t know what is.

Climbing Mt Kilimanjaro

Climbing Mt Kilimanjaro

Climbing Kili is so much more than a trip to tick off your bucket list. Watching landscapes change as you set one foot in front of the other, your mind starts to wander. It’s an opportunity to leave the rest of the world behind. To fully appreciate the strength of your body and your mind. No Wi-Fi, no emails, just you and the mountain.

Why we love Climbing Mt Kilimanjaro:

Hearing the sounds around camp at night makes you feel you’re part of a great expedition. There’s only one way: up. And no shortcuts for no one.

Hiking the Drakensberg Mountains

Hiking the home of the Dragon.

Hiking the Drakensberg Mountains

Gurgling streams and plunging waterfalls, green rolling hills and steep cliffs, ancient rock art and views of Giant’s Castle peak. The roughly 1000km long Drakensberg Mountains in KwaZulu-Natal are one of the best places to experience a hiking trip in South Africa. Take a deep breath of fresh mountain air, take a dip in one of the natural pools. A paradise for nature-lovers in the great outdoors.

Why we love Hiking the Drakensberg Mountains:

Whether you take the children on an easy hike or opt for a challenge, you will always enjoy dramatic views across untouched mountain landscapes.

I decided to do this trip every five years from now on. Climbing Kili makes you realize you’re still alive!”
