Hi Mendel

I am not into GPS, but from Google Earth the start is at 34 01 15.34S and 23 55 48.17E.
Does that help?
With a map of the trail and Google Earth you shouls be able to spot the other overnight huts as well.
If I try it seems as if Scott Hut is at 34 00 22.53s and 23 47 10.10E.
Ngubu at 34 01 01.97s and 23 50 30.88e
Maybe someone that have done the trail and can easier identify the huts on GE can help with this.

I know that the coordinates were taken long ago when the technology was fairly new and not very accurate! A colleague from Knysna is planning to walk the trail and re-take the coordinates in the near future! I shall keep you posted on his Progress

You can also get it from the Google map on the PDSK site:

I found a page which displays the entire route on Google Earth. The GPS track and some Otter trail photos also available for download. It looks like the track have been recorded in March 2009.

Have a look at the following URL: ... icle&id=59

Hope this helps.
