The Giants Cup Hiking Trail is part of the National Hiking Way. The hike follows a well established and clearly marked trail that runs southwards from Sani Pass in the north to Bushmans Nek in the south, the full trail being approximately 60km in length. It falls within the Ukahlamba Wilderness Area (a World Heritage Site) and is administered by KZN Wildlife who provide 5 basic overnight huts along the route for independent hikers.

SA Adventure Trails has introduced slack-packing to this trail for those who would like to walk the trail during the day and stay at comfortable lodges at night where all meals are provided for.

Departures are organized for the spring and autumn months when the weather is predictable and mostly fine - outside of the summer thunderstorms and cold winters. Groups of 4 - 10 hikers are welcome to form their own parties or join one of the scheduled hikes
