OVERNIGHT HIKING TOURS
Name: Cape Point Overnight Hiking Trail
Location: Cape of Good Hope (Cape Point)
Duration: 2 days (Day one 5 - 7 hours, Day two - 7 - 8 hours)
Accommodation: Basic overnight hut, with bunk beds and cutlery
Description: This is one of the most remote hikes you can do within the City of Cape Town. Although Cape Point is quite busy the trail never ventures past any major tourist attraction therefore your interaction with people is limited to fellow hikers and the occasional vehicle.
Day 1 - Follows along the cliffs of Judas Peak, Paulsberg and Die Boer with magnificent views of False Bay below. This is Klipspringer territory and you are likely to spot the shy animals. Once we hit the Kanonkop lookout point the most strenuous part of the 1st day is over. We then have the option of following the seabreeze, past two tidal pools, a sand beach and rocky beaches before making the short climb to the Overnight hut. Or alternatively stay inland and enjoy a break at the Buffelsfontein Visitor Centre.
Day 2 - Is a slightly longer hike, however it is relatively flat. We drop down to the Atlantic coastline for the first part of the day where many seabirds can be seen. Once we hit Hoek van Bobbejaan the trail gradually moves inward into beautiful fynbos vegetation where we are hopeful to come across some of the larger mammals found in Cape Point like Eland, Red Hartbeest and Bontebok. The trail will lead past Sirkelsvlei dam and the up the Rooihoogte peak before making its way back to the main gate and the end of the hike.
Price: Different packages available, depending on catering preferences, number of guests and other supplies. Please contact for further inquiries.
You will need to have a backpack to carry your own drinking water and lunch.
