Hiking in the Orange Kloof area of Table Mountain

The Orange Kloof area of Table Mountain is accessed from Constantia Nek and is the only restricted area of Table Mountain. A permit is quite easy to obtain unless you want to go over the weekend or during school holidays and is well worth the effort.

Situated right at the back of Table Mountain Orange kloof is a large area of dense indigenous forest with several gorges leading up onto the mountain. The most well known is Disa Gorge which leads up to the Woodhead reservoir wall.

However some of the most special part of the hike in the area is in the forest. There are a variety of paths which lead through the forest winding up and down and over several small streams which even in summer and running with pure clean water.



A circular jeep track runs along the inside of the valley and the views of Constantia and Houtbay are wonderful and offer a completely different perspective from the usual views.
