Slackpacking is backpacking without the schlep, allowing hikers to travel light while someone else takes care of their overnight bags. This guide, which tells you all you need to know about some of South Africa's top slackpacking trails, is for everyone, from hardcore mountain lovers, twitchers and botanists to family groups and modern-day strandlopers. Slackpacking covers a wide variety of trails, including luxury, guided and catered trails, community-run guided trails and unguided, self-catered trails. Each day of each trail is described in detail, including such useful snippets of information as: distance covered and the average walking time; group size; degree of difficulty; level of accommodation; terrain; when best to walk; what to bring; who to contact to make all the arrangements.
