Kalander Kloof hike

Multi-Day Hikes

Two excellent multi-day hikes are available in the Tsitsikamma National Park, as well as a variety of shorter trails. Wild Spirit is the ideal base camp for these expeditions and we can arrange shuttles on request.

Day Hikes in the area

Nature's Valley, often described as The Jewel of The Garden Route, boasts the best of South Africa’s offerings: ancient forests, hills decorated with scented fynbos in flower, rambling sand dunes, golden beaches, sparkling rivers and a fresh water lagoon. Expect to see many wild animals and birds on one of the several excellent hiking trails available in the area. We offer shuttles to and from these hikes.

Cycling from the Crags to Nature's Valley

We have recently purchased 12 high-quality mountain bikes for guests to rent and explore the beautiful valley where we're based. We have wonderful routes from the lodge to the beach as well as to and from the amazing Bloukrans Pass.
