When you are on the move it's hard (and often very limiting) to carry everything you need on your back. However, this can present a bit of a dilemma, you don’t want to waste money buying items you only need for a few days, but equally risking missing these experiences altogether isn’t ideal either. Well happily there now is a middle ground available, with peer-to-peer rental platforms like Fat Lama allowing you to borrow kit cheaply from people in the local area.

Hiking the Otter Trail: 45km in five days

The Otter Trail is a 45km coastal path that crosses numerous rivers, gives you endless ocean views of crashing waves and rewards you with wonderful log cabins to sleep in. It was my favourite hike out of all the walking we did in Africa and one that shouldn't be missed!

Hiking the Drakensberg Northern Traverse: 65km in 5 days
