Most visitors flock to Plettenberg Bay for its golden beaches and breathtaking views, but Plett Tourism has created a new offering to introduce tourists to the area’s more hidden gems.
On Thursday, October 8 Plett Tourism launched The Plett Trail – a fully guided slackpacking experience set to immerse visitors in the area’s ancient wonders, rich cultures, perse ecology and birdlife, boutique wine farms and luxury accommodation.
Trail guide veteran Grahame Thomson said that he had seen many magnificent trails across Africa over the years and believed that Plettenberg Bay’s new offering had the potential to be among “the best”.
Plett tourism has dubbed the trail a unique country adventure bringing wine farms, multi-terrain hiking, cultural and marine ecology experiences and wildlife together in a luxury slackpacking package.
Thomson said very few visitors realised that Plett was home to various significant archeological sites, including Nelson’s Cave at Robberg which dates back to more than 160 000 where a small population thrived on the Garden Route’s abundance.
