If you love the idea of exploring unspoiled stretches of the coastline and pioneering new trails, but hate the thought of carrying a crippling load on your back, then slackpacking is for you. The Crayfish Trail Route links a series of quaint coastal towns and noteworthy farms In Elands Bay, Steenbokfontein, Lamberts Bay, Doring Bay, Big River Bend and Papendorp. There are many different routes from which to choose. These include the Five-Day Trail and a choice of Two Day Trail – all of this only 2½ hours outside of Cape Town.
