What a stunningly beautiful place. And definitely must be seen in the rain to appreciate it fully---it is wall-to-wall waterfalls then. The self-catered huts are very well-kept and comfortable. So nice not to have to pack a tent, mattress, or cook stove. Tip for hikers:...More

Ultimate Hikes couldn't be better. The guides are competent, cheerful, knowledgeable and patient. I remember Mark, Willem, Jules, Lilidh and Veronica among others.

Before I went on this trip I was concerned that I wasn't fit enough. I am in my 50's and am moderately fit. I walk, play tennis, workout at the gym most days but I don't consider myself an avid hiker. We did the Ultimate...More

There is a link in your Confirmation E-mail to allow on-line booking. You can't book transport without first having booked the huts. Unless you're travelling in the "off-season' ?
