The past number of weeks have produced some fine sunny and sometimes hot weather (berg winds). May, June and July are great months to get out along the coast north of East London and to do the 4 night, 5 day Strandloper Hiking Trail.
Folk that have passed through recently have had a magic experience along some of South Africa’s best coastline.
The East London Museum has been involved with the Strandloper Trail since its inception in 1996. Museum scientist Kevin Cole has been Chairperson of the Strandloper Ecotourism Board for the past 21 years. Other long standing members still active on the Board are Sean Price (founder member), Dave Marais (project Director), Velile Ndlumbini and Janna Cooper.
Bryan and Erica Church are also long serving, hard working management staff (Trail Manager and Reservations Manager respectively) having joined the trail in 1998. Senior coastal ranger John Pakamile and coastal ranger Johnson Mila have also made a great contribution to the success of this coastal ecotourism experience.
