The Otter trail –Western Cape
Possibly one of the most famous and popular hiking trails in South Africa, The Otter Trail is definitely a must-see, and rightfully takes the number one spot on our list of the best hiking trails in South Africa.

Distance: 42.5 km
Cost: R49 per adult, per day and R24 per child, per day.*
Blyderivierspoort hiking trail –Mpumalanga
Just over 4 hours and 30 minutes away from the Johannesburg city centre, the Blyderivierspoort hiking trail meanders its way through the world’s third largest canyon, and is arguably one of South Africa’s most breathtaking hiking trails with plenty photo of opportunities. Depending on your fitness level, you can choose between a 3 and 5 day, or go for a shorter 18km Hippo trail.
Distance: 60 km
Entrance fee: From R20 per person.*
Ukhahlamba Amphitheatre hiking trail –KwaZulu Natal
The Ukhahlamba Amphitheatre hiking trail is a mere two hours’ drive from Durban. It’s famous for its awe-inspiring scenic views, and of course the mighty wall of basalt which is over 100 m from the Tugela Valley to the Lesotho plateau. The amphitheater is the most recognisable and dramatically imposing feature of the Drakensberg mountain range, and has been declared a world heritage site. This one is for the more experienced hikers.
Cost: From R3100 (minimum per 2 people).*
*Prices may increase at the discretion of the hiking site’s management.
