We did the trail in April 2022
First night Right at the ocean in large Wood houses. A bit rustic but great views
Dinner was in substitute tent since the restaurant is under rebuild. The large tent had no Charme whatsoever, food was ok. But not a place to stay

2nd night was in misty mountain lodge which principally is quite nice, but was rather unmanaged and staff didn’t really care. Dinner and Bfast were quite basic and could have been much better.

3rd night was at Fernery, all luxury back. Superb cabins, superb food,very caring staff.

The hike itself was nice and not strenuous at all. Easy peasy for all a bit trained

The guide Werner was very caring and super educated about the entire surrounding , great value to the hike

All in all a nice trip BUT I think, given comparisons what you get For the money it is quite a bit overpriced. The food and lodging doesn’t stack up to Garden Root experiences

Absolutely wonderful experience! The hike can be challenging due to some steep climbs with some done in the baking sun but distance-wise, it's do-able. The guides - Werner and Clint - were superb. Werner is extremely knowledgeable, not only about nature, but also about the geology of the place. My elderly parents came on the hike and it was quite challenging for them - my mother opted out after the first leg and then rejoined us for the last leg. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating - on the first day, Freddy / Tulani took her to the accommodation after the morning tea (this followed the very steep first ascent which was taxing for her) and on the way in the jeep described the different places they were passing and talked about the local area - although she did not do the whole hike, she didn't feel that she was missing out on anything and the staff are to thank for this - thanks especially to Freddy, Leandre and Clint for taking care of her. On the second day, Clint brought her to meet us for lunch in the forest and she walked with us the rest of the way.

While the SANParks accommodation is basic, it's very clean, has everything you need and it's right on the ocean. Although the restaurant burnt down in 2017, there is a temporary facility in its place and it was more than expected - a Cattle Baron restaurant where the staff were superb and very helpful.

Misty Mountain Lodge had an atmosphere all of its own - lovely setting and just something very special about it. The staff were excellent - professional, friendly, just brilliant. And then there were the very tame peacocks and peahens - wonderful to see. Really liked the rooms and everything about the place.

The Fernery is something very special - gorgeous setting and fantastic accommodation. Perched on a cliff top, it has amazing views of the river and the terrace is a perfect place for sundowners.

All the food along the trail was superb, particularly the dinners at Misty Mountain and The Fernery.

The trail itself varies in topography so you get to hike up rocky slopes, in shady Tsitsikamma forests, along stunning rocky coastline and, for a short while, along a bit of sandy beach. There are rock pools along the way where you can swim - but beware, it's icy, icy cold! Nice a refreshing after a few hours of walking, though.

Highly, highly recommended. I feel it's good value for money given the professional guides, the superb accommodation, and the excellent food (all meals) provided. I'll definitely do it again if I have the opportunity.

Such a treat to have extremely professional and informative guides - Werner and JJ - to shepherd a happy group of two South Africans and eight delightful Germans through the magical Tsitsikamma (place of sparkling waters) National Park. The two day hiking path weaves between ancient indigenous forests, fynbos and the rocky seashore, At the end of each day, we were welcomed at the friendly four star accommodation at "Misty Mountain" and "The Fernery". A supreme experience of a pristine world.
Thank you from Christopher and Helen

If you're looking to do something adventurous with beautiful scenery, accommodation and delicious food the Dolphin Trail is definitely a must!

I am not the most "outdoorsy" or fit person but I'm so glad I had this experience with my friends and family. The hike itself was a little tough at certain points but is definitely manageable with the views making the hard work worthwhile. Our guides were very knowledgeable of the area and biodiversity and kept up a good pace for the group. Breakfast, snacks, lunch and a 3 course dinner were provided on all days so there's no need to worry about the menu. The accommodation on the first night was a little rustic, but was clean, pretty much on the beach and had everything you would need. The second night at Misty Mountain was a lot nicer with the third night at The Fernary being a show stopper.

There are too many highlights to mention. This hike is worth every cent.

Der gesamte Trip war gut organisiert. Die Wanderung kann für ungeübte Wanderer eine Herausforderung sein. Für geübte ist sie einfach nur schön. Der Küste entlang, die Hügel hoch und wieder runter. Es gibt eine Erfrischung an einem wunderbaren Aussichtspunkt. Das ganze wird durch die sehr schönen und luxuriösen Unterkünfte abgerundet.

Keep trying to book and even pay and and they keep messing up our dates. Shocking admin. If that is the booking process imagine how good the rest of the planning/hike/communication must be? Think it's better to look for another trail.

Dear mandif2015 Thank you for having reviewed the Dolphin Trail (ahead of your hike) and your comments regarding the admin system. Being such an amazing trail, as you can see from reviews, it is in high demand and we are very thankful that it is booked up throughout the year with many advanced bookings and waitlists for particular times. The reservation system takes a huge amount of planning and thus far, we have managed to ensure all our previous guests have had faultless bookings. I apologise most sincerely that your booking has appeared to be skewered but we do commit to doing our very best. Wishing a great season ahead. Kind regards, Diane - on behalf of SANParks, Misty Mountain Reserve, the Fernery

I couldn’t even comment on the trail, the month visited or the no of people (6) intending to go. We booked the trail after much discussion about suitable dates ( for 6 adults with kids it’s not easy to find dates in school holidays). We completed the forms and confirmed date only to be called about 10 days later to say the dates were no longer available. I was then presented with further dates that were available ; reconsulted with the group about their suitable dates and then confirmed the new date (twice) again. Today, I received an email saying the new date ( that they had proposed) is no longer available and could we book a month later#so unimpressed!!!

Dear AnnW2747 We are terribly sorry that you have experienced frustration with the booking of your hike. The Dolphin Trail is a 3-way partnership, with each establishment having its own reservation system. Therefore, before we are able to confirm a booking, we have to be certain of availability of the correct, allocated accommodation units at all three partners. As you can imagine, this entails careful and accurate planning and it is a process dependent on other parties. With the nature of bookings being erratic due to cancellations and new enquiries popping up, we do admit that tying it together can be tricky. The Dolphin Trail team, from the guides to the porters and reservationists - the entire team - are a dedicated group and we do try our level best, at all costs, to ensure an amazing experience for our guests, from start to finish. You will ascertain from previous hikers that this truly is a wonderful experience had by all, and we are constantly endeavouring to smooth and streamline processes and systems. I do hope you will leave with amazing memories and that the booking frustrations do not diminish the overall experience. Our apologies again. Regards, Diane - on behalf of SANParks, Misty Mountain Reserve, the Fernery
