Why choose this trail?
It's essential to go with the right guide
Beachcomber Guide was set up in 2010 by Jason Stonehewer, an experienced guide who is passionate about nature guiding and studying our amazing inter-coastal marine environment. In August 2014, Jason received the Mayor’s Award for his contribution to environmental awareness.
As Beachcomber Guide has grown, Jason has brought on board several specialist guides who share his passion for conservation and the local area. Some hiking trail facilitators use inexperienced unqualified guides, but all our guides are qualified FGASA (Field Guides Association of South Africa) guides with specialities in Marine ecology, Strandveld flora & Fauna, medicinal plants, geology, shipwrecks and Khoi-san history.
