I am new to this forum
I am an American living in South Africa since 2019. After a long journey (booking a year advance, then postponing because of COVID) -some friends and I are finally doing Otter Trail 18-22 May. Unfortunately, a few of our friends who were meant to travel from overseas are no longer able to make it.
As a result I have four open spots for the Otter Trail from 18-22 May. It is too late for me to get a refund from SANParks on this reservation so I am just keen to not lose what I have already paid. I will ask for the SANParks fees (R1450pp) but am a little bit flexible. If you’re interested -please PM me and we can go from there. For safety and verification purposes (my group is all woman) I’ll ask that we do some sort of zoom or phone call before proceeding.
I did the hike last week, what an awesome experience. There are 2 huts sleeping 3 each and there are 3 tents as well each night. Covid19 restrictions only allow 50% occupancy. Stupid rule LOL
All the best in finding some people for the hike and have loads of fun. It is a very safe 5 day hike
I may very well be interested. Those tickets still available?
Day 4 looks interesting:
The 21st is the Blaukrans river crossing - Low Tide is 05:13… and its 13km from the hut. Whats the plan?
Youve got 7ks after that too.
My low tide was 5hrs later at 10h32 two weeks ago when I was there and we took around 4 to 5 hrs to get there from the previous overnight Hut on as we woke up at 4am and left at 5am with head torches.
I got there first at 9h45 and was early and crossed the river ankle deep all the way.
