The two-day Alexandria Hiking Trail in the Woody Cape section of the Addo Elephant National Park is a meander through untouched wilderness and almost unparalleled biodiversity. Hikers traverse three distinct environments: ancient forest, dunes and coastline with magnificent views of the bay, Bird Island, and almost endless dune-fields.
The 36 km trail is hiked over 2 days, overnighting at the Woody Cape hut. Birders and nature-lovers can expect to be endlessly fascinated by the bird life, changing scenery and pristine environment.
Investigate the wreck of an old steamer, listen for the call of the colourful Knynsa turaco, wonder at the marine life of rock pools and stroll amongst towering forests – this coastal hike in the Addo Elephant National Park is for serious hikers who enjoy the natural beauty and open space of the Eastern Cape.
