We set off just after 8h20 from Goukamma (having to wait for the gate to open at 8h00). A cloudy, cool day –perfect for walking through the dunes, fynbos and fig forest. Erick and Wolf had to clear a tree from the lines of the pont and for a second it looked like they may topple in! Fortunately everyone crossed dry.


We hiked the Porcupine trail, which sticks to the dunes offering beautiful views and fynbos. Total length 13.5 km.


The rain held off till the last 30 minutes of the hike –then we got wet as a steady drizzle started.


A hike well worth doing!
