Another wonderful hike on Table Mountain
I can never really say which hike on Table Mountain is my favourite, but hole in the wall has to feature in the top five somewhere. Its a wonderful route right off the beaten track. I don’t think I have ever met anyone else on this route. It is an easy scramble with a wonderful mixture of indigenous forestry, wonderful views, caves and overhangs.
To get there go up Constantia Nek or from Ceceilia forest to the Overseers Cottage. Almost directly opposite the cottage take the path that leads to the left alongside the De Villiers reservoir. At the far end of the reservoir instead of following the path down to the dam wall, follow a smaller path that goes straight ahead. This path leads to 2 great routes. Bushmans overhand and Hole in the wall.
Almost immediately the views of Orange Kloof appear below you, while behind is the reservoir and Southern suburbs.
