Here at The Great Break we are always searching for valuable information and resources centred around exploring the outdoors. We were excited to find just that in the form of the Hiking South Africa website dedicated to creating a central, national community resource for hikers.

Hiking South Africa is packed with news, videos, and articles about trails around our beautiful country. It has also built a great online community forum on which members discuss a variety of topics from, mountain huts, safety tips, gear advice and even trail food reviews. Looking to trade, sell or buy used hiking gear? This is the place!

We met up with co-founder, Arno van der Heever who expressed how he identified a need for this platform in the hiking community and his passion for the outdoors. We have since collaborated to create a uniquely South African designed t-shirt inspired by the SA landscape and local Ndebele patterns, buy yours here >

You can sign up to the Hiking South Africa newsletter and follow them on social media for updates.
