Best Hikes in South Africa
Cape Town in South Africa has some of the best hiking and trekking spots in the world, with a number of good hiking trails around Table Mountain which range from easy to advanced. For something different, there are even full moon hikes at night time up the beautiful Lions Head. The hike is moderate, and the views of the city below are breathtaking.
Africa's Best Treks
Those wanting something a bit more challenging can hike the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro by the remote Shira Route. This is an exhilarating option for walkers who want to explore some of the less busy trails, but be warned – mountain weather conditions prevail.
Zambia is ideal for hikers and trekkers, and offers a wide range of hikes in certain parts of the country. The area around Victoria Falls in Livingstone is ideal for hikes, with awe inspiring scenery and the spectacular falls to admire.

The highlight of my trip had to be Gweru in Zimbabwe, it was my idea of paradise. So much to do there with the animals and the location of it was just beautiful!

The trip was great! A very relaxed ride in a mokoro, followed by camping in the Okavango Delta and watching the animals on the islands was awesome!
