We're a middle-aged fit couple who were delighted by both the beauty and variety of the Tsitsikamma Trail which starts on a magnificent Indian Ocean beach and extends over five days into the mountain area overlooking the ocean, through a beautiful unique landscape of "fynbos" (gorgeous varied heathers and hardwoods). The hiking is manageable for fit folk. But the highlight... More

We were fortunate to hike the beautiful Tsitsikamma Trail with Garth at the beginning of South African autumn. The hike itself is beautiful, with so much to see, learn and enjoy. We're experienced older hikers, and Garth was among the best guides we've worked with. He is passionate about South Africa's wild world, possesses exceptional knowledge of flora and fauna... More

I set out to hike the Tsitsikamma Trail with Garth but, after the second day we were evacuated from the Trail due to a bushfire not too far away and, unpredictable regarding where it would go in the next days. We were driven to the second last hut and thus, could walk the last section of the Trail. But now... More

We booked GoVertical months prior to our fantastic South African adventure for a 6 day traverse of the Drakensbergs. We had extra days following (a great day hike to local pictographs was arranged!) and required shuttles to and from Durban and Lee-Anne coordinated all of this perfectly! This provided us with a wonderful adventure of a lifetime but without any... More

We booked our two day adventure from Australia and found the correspondence and booking process smooth and informative. First day was a hike in the Outeniqua Mountains followed by a lovely stay at Candlewood lodge (booked by GV and included). Second day was a beach walk and canoe around Knysna. Great personal touch from a family business and felt valued... More

I booked two spaces to go Kloofing in December and was very disappointed in the service received. We planned our holiday from the UK to South Africa at the start of 2012 and I have always wanted to go Kloofing (cannoning) so decided to plan ahead and book in early to ensure we could go Kloofing in Knysna in the...

Kloofing is one of our most popular adventures, climbing, clambering, bum slides, swimming, it's an awesome way to spend your day, this December we had stunning weather and our adventures were packed full throughout the season. It's a great pity that Kate didn't manage to join us on the adventure that she had made a provisional booking for. Our cancellation... More

This was the highlight of our 4 day stay in Knysna, it was a superb way to escape the holiday frenzy in the town of Knysna itself during December. We did Go Vertical's Full Day Knysna Adventure Trail which is a combination of Canoeing and then a Beach walk. They provide all the life jackets, a waterproof bag for your... More

This is a very professional company who run exciting and safe excursions that are great for the whole family. As a family with one young child and two teenagers we were all catered for exceptionally well. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and pointed out many interesting pieces of fauna and flora along our route, I would use them again on... More
