At Garden route walks we firmly believe in enjoying nature responsibly and the safety of our guests and ourselves is of the utmost importance.
We do not guide guests on trails we have not walked and will not guide beyond our abilities or qualifications.
Our behind the scenes preparation includes checking three different weather sites daily to ensure we are prepared and can advise our guests accordingly. Should a suitable “weather window” not present itself we will, in the interests of safety, advise a date change or a cancellation.
Our decisions are based on the following sites:
We are members of the local branch of wilderness search and rescue, a division of the Mountain Club of South Africa.
We plan our walks and walk our plans. We do not deviate from set routes and our walk plans including group size etc are left with our vehicle at the start of the trail and at our home base. Should I not check in the Mountain rescue crew will be notified and a search mobilized.
Our advanced first aid qualifications are updated regularly and a basic first aid kit is carried on all our trails.
