Take A Walk On The Wild Side

The Fynbos Trail runs through the breathtakingly beautiful Cape Floral Kingdom, which is a World Heritage Site, that is just waiting to be explored by you. The trail weaves its way through magical forests as well as through blankets of more than 800 species of coastal and mountain Fynbos. Embraced by an exquisite backdrop of mountain and sea, you will experience Cape flora and fauna at its exquisite best. Here, nature’s tapestry is punctuated by gushing waterfalls and the cry of birds, native to this picturesque area in the Overberg.

A hiking distance of nine km taking approximately four hours is added by walking this extra coastal route. You set off from your guesthouse with a guide who will show you the De Kelders Drip Cave with its natural spring pool. A lovely walk along the beach back to the guesthouse will follow. After a relaxing evening the route takes hikers along the Klipgat Trail which winds its way along the rocky De Kelders coastline. The coastal route includes Duiwelsgat and Klipgat caves where you will enjoy morning tea. After continuing through the sand dunes at Die Plaat beach the trail will lead you to the main road where you will be transferred to Steynsbos for a picnic lunch. The extra coastal day cannot be done without a guide as it is very difficult to find your way through the unmarked dune fields and it is recommended you add this section of the route to the beginning of the trail.

Includes:

Overnight accommodation at a guesthouse in De Kelders (including dinner, breakfast, morning tea and lunch), the permit fees for your entry into Walker Bay Nature Reserve, your transfers to Growing the Future, luggage transfers and a tour guide.

Cost: R1,550
