The overnight trail in Cape Point Nature Reserve

There is no doubt in my mind that the best way to experience The Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve is on foot. And if you have time to spend 2 days hiking even better. You totally escape the crowds and experience the true wilderness and wildness of the area.

Day 1 follows the False Bay coastline, which consists of a series of cliffs which drop steeply to the sea. Although there are some precipitous view points the path itself is well away from the edge so no need to worry if you are not good with heights.

Day 2 follows the Atlantic seaboard which is at sea level so you follow huge empty beaches for the first half of the day before heading inland and past circles vlei which is a large body of fresh water. It is in this stretch that we often see much of the areas shy wildlife. Such as bontebok and mountain zebra.

The accommodation is in 6 man dorms with shared ablutions and kitchen facilities. Comfortable but rustic. Both sunrise and sunset are amazing.
