Independent Walks

As a general rule, if you are more independent of spirit but would still like certain elements such as your accommodation, transport and daily lunch arranged, then the independent packages are for you. Our Inclusive options cater for those who would like meals included. We also have Standard and Upgrade options available depending on the type of accommodation you seek. Standard packages feature simple ensuite-style accommodation, normally without a view of the ocean, while Upgrades have more modern ensuite-style unit.
