The Outeniqua Trail is one of the toughest (if you do the entire trail) and well known trails in South Africa
The Harkerville hut at end of trail is also the first hut for the 2 day and night Harkerville trail. So if you want to make the trail an xtra day longer and take in the spectacular Harkerville forest and scary coastal cliffs...
The cheapest option is to organise the trail yourself. Dont forget National Park fees which are over and above the trail fees.
