A 4 day hike on Table Mountain
The hiking trail that runs the length of the Table Mountain Chain is called the Hoerikwaggo Trail. Each day you cover +/- 18km and overnight in one of the beautiful tented camps along the way. Tented camp is a bit of a misnomer as the accommodation provided is first class with comfortable beds, hot running water, fully equipped kitchens etc.
There are a number of different routes you can take from camp to camp. Or, of course you can just park off in one camp and enjoy day hikes in the surrounding area. I have just returned from a 4 day hike from Scarborough beach to the cable way. In total we covered a distance of 65km and had a combination of beach and mountain walking. We chose to do the hike unsupported. ie. We carried our food and all our equipment with us which made the uphills a little bit harder but the feeling of self sufficiency and complete escape from the stresses of everyday life was fantastic.
Here are some photos of our experience:
