Trail Dates & Packages

Options to suit your preference & pocket

We offer 16 Perlemoen Trail dates each year during our trail season which runs from September through to June.  The vast majority of people join us for the full 4 days/4 nights of the trail, however it is possible to join us for just part of the 4 day trail depending on availability.

Our dates are chosen taking into consideration the best tide conditions for hikers’ comfort – we are the only coastal slackpacking trail in South Africa to choose our dates based on optimal hiking conditions.  Note if our trail dates don’t exactly suit your calendar, please contact me and maybe we can work something out.  

Group size on the trail can range from 4 hikers up to 12 max, unless you have a large family and friends group of 8 or more hikers, in which case your trail will be exclusive.  Our pricing structure is on a sliding scale, so the more hikers in your group booking, the better the price we can give you.

Accommodation & Catering

You are accommodated in Beachcombers private guest house “Lucky Fish” a great location and specially designed with large communal areas for relaxing after a long days hike.

Fully Catered

All meals are provided including a full breakfast, healthy picnic lunch and simple local restaurant supper or guest house BBQ. Trail snacks & light refreshments also included.


The Self-Catering option, you bring all your own food and drinks. There is a shop in Pearly Beach for basic supplies, and a few rustic eating places, but no bottle-store.
