South Africa offers some of the most exciting and varied trekking and hiking opportunities in the World from easy day hikes on famous Table Mountain to treks in our high and remote mountain ranges or along our rugged coast line.
Venture Forth offer various guided hikes and treks throughout South Africa with our expert guides and years of experience, ensuring your safety and enjoyment. You can choose from our set itineraries or request a custom made trek as private guiding.
Our treks are mostly self-supported, meaning that you have to carry your own backpack with all your requirements and cook for yourself. However, porters or pack animals (where available) and fully catered options can be requested.
Trekking can be combined with various other adventure options and activities such as visits to game parks, quad-biking, mountain biking, rock climbing, sight seeing, bungy-jumping, parachuting, kayaking etc.
