About the Event


A 3 hour walk (approx) in the Beautiful Hopeman seaside. 

Difficulty: The walk will be gentle, and will be about 4km (2.5 miles). There will be some uphill and downhill walking. There is a slightly steper part at the beginning and the end. The total ascent and descent will be about 130 m.

  • We will take some time to take in the surroundings, sit and lay on the sandy beach with views of the sea.
  • I will tell you a few oral traditional stories about the sea, and read you a poem or two.
  • If the tide allows, we can look for seeweed. 
  • Although, not part of the event, if you wanted to swim after the walk is over, bring whatever you need for this.
