It is a fact that some hikers are hiking for more than 20 years and it is possible that they could have done all the hiking trails in Southern Africa. Therefore all hikers are always on the lookout for a new hiking trail. I have been contacted by several farmers, looking for someone to help them to develop a hiking trail on their farms. There are two ways to develop a new trail, you could either get a trail developer, pay them to do the job, or you could do it yourself and save money.
There are a number of hiking trail developers, but it looks like they are charging quite a lot to develop a trail. My personal opinion is that it is not necessary for a farmer to get a professional trail developer. With advice from experienced hikers farmers could develop a hiking trail by them self. To develop it themselves should result in lower tariffs and lower tariffs mean more hikers on the trails
