Regular walking or weekend hiking escapes are a way of life for so many of us.

And South Africa is truly a hiker's paradise - awash with trails that transcend the sheer beauty of nature, being both cathartic and energising at the same time.

Home to its own Cape Camino, the Garden Route's Otter Trail, as well as firm favourites like Lion's Head and the lesser-known Crayfish Trail along the West Coast - there is a hike to suit your level of fitness and endurance.

Locally, the options are vast. Yet our Southern African neighbours also offer up some extra-ordinary hikes like the Fish River Canyon to mention just one must-do border-crossing adventure.

And still, the love for hiking extends beyond whether you're young or old, have a penchant for the active or simply need a little respite from your daily, stressful grind.

Most of us have, at one point or another, gone for a long, relaxing walk - and if anybody has done an Outlier's amount of hiking it would be Tim Lundy.
