As well Stephen leads walking groups down the Wild Coast of the Eastern Cape.
This is gentle walking on deserted (except for the village cows) white sanded beaches of the Indian Ocean and over the gentle soft grass rolling hills,no big climbs,no big mountains,everything at sea level.
See this hike link.
