This Father's Day, why not treat Dad to an unforgettable experience in the great outdoors? South Africa boasts some of the world's most breathtaking scenery, and there's no better way to create lasting memories than with a hike together. Don't worry if you're beginners or Dad prefers a leisurely stroll – there are plenty of easy trails perfect for getting your dose of nature without breaking a sweat (or Dad's spirit!).

Gauteng: Hennops Hiking Trail 

Escape the city bustle and head to Hennops Hiking Trail. This scenic route winds through farmland, offering stunning views and a variety of birdlife. The well-maintained paths are perfect for a family outing, with picnic areas and even swimming pools for a refreshing dip after your hike. The Dassie and Zebra Trails are the best options for families and beginners respectively. Make it a family adventure with our Timberland® GreenStride™ Hiking Boots! Available in adult and kid's sizes, these boots are crafted with eco-conscious materials and provide all the traction and support you need on uneven terrain. 


KwaZulu-Natal: Giba Gorge Trail

Nestled within Durban's suburbs, Giba Gorge is a hidden gem. This short, easy trail takes you through lush indigenous forests alongside a cascading stream. Keep an eye out for playful monkeys and a vibrant array of birdlife. The trail culminates at a beautiful waterfall – the perfect spot for a photo opportunity! For this hike, our Timberland® GreenStride™ Earth Keeper + Hiking Shoes are a great choice for the whole family. Lightweight, comfortable, and breathable, they'll keep everyone's feet happy on warmer days.

Western Cape: Aloe Hill Trail 

The Western Cape is a hiker's paradise, but for a gentle introduction, explore the Aloe Hill Trail in Bontebok National Park. This mostly flat route winds its way past vibrant fynbos and towering red aloes. Look out for grazing bontebok, the park's namesake antelope. As the trail follows the Breede River, a pair of our Timberland® GreenStride™ Waterbury Chukka Boots will keep everyone's feet dry from any puddles or unexpected dips. Available in adult and kid's sizes, these waterproof boots are perfect for the whole family!

Mpumalanga: Graskop Gorge 

Experience the wonder of Mpumalanga's Panorama Route with a unique twist! The Graskop Gorge Lift takes you down the face of a dramatic cliff, offering breathtaking views of the indigenous forest below. Once down, explore a network of easy walking trails that wind through the gorge, perfect for all ages. Comfortable shoes are key, and our Timberland® GreenStride™ Hiking Shoes are a great option. They're lightweight and flexible, allowing for easy manoeuvring on the trails, while the eco-conscious construction lets you explore responsibly.
