A Unique Garden Route walking Festival

From Cape Nature – At the end of this month on the Cape Garden Route SA’s first walking 
festival will take place.

We are inviting all intrepid walkers and hikers to be Walk Leaders
during the festival. Walk Leaders are encouraged to share a favourite
 walk with others by leading a walk they are familiar with and know
 well. Please check the festival website and select a walk to lead, or 
create your own walk, the more creative, interesting and exciting a
 walk can be the better. To include your walk in the programme we will
need you to complete a Walk Form online by 18th March 2012 on the
website: www.walkingfestival.co.za

 This festival is about celebrating the good life of the outdoors, it
is about Great Walks in Good Company. The festival is accessible and
 open to all.

While some of the walks require a registration fee (to cover permits
etc) there are many that are free.

The success of a festival of this nature is dependent on the community
getting involved. Such festivals have immense potential in becoming 
tourism draw cards and can stimulate economic activity. The more
 people from George to Storms River who get involved in leading a walk
and or in participating in walks the more the whole region benefits.
The Cape Garden Route is one of the most scenic, safe and accessible
walking regions around and walking is a great way to showcase this
 natural beauty and to share it with the world.

If you know anyone who you feel would love to know about this
 festival, please forward this email to them. Alternatively join our
 Facebook page and invite your friends.

Lets put the Garden Route on the map as being one of the world’s great
walking destinations – which it is.
