A ‘ghut’ is the local name for the seams and folds of our hillsides – watercourses where rain runs down to the sea. At certain times of the year these stunning environments hide rushing streams and small waterfalls – at other times they are quiet, shady, boulder-strewn gullies perfect for hiking.
We will start high at the top of a hill and follow the ghut downwards in the shade of the canopy. Along the way we’ll pass freshwater pools and springs with fish and crayfish, giant ferns and hanging vines, with a range of fauna and flora all around. Inevitably, the hike emerges with a welcome sight: the cool blue sea.
Hiking experience is not necessary for these tours, but you should be comfortable walking ‘off-road’ down steep terrain. For those who like a real challenge we can, of course, go the other way – from sea-level to the top of the mountain.
