I thought I would share a few photos from the Cape of Good Hope Hiking Trail which we did last weekend at Cape Point. It’s a two-day circular route of 33.8km which begins and ends at the entrance gate of the Cape of Good Hope with an overnight stay. The best part is that they offer a porterage service which means that you don’t have to lug all your sleeping bags and food with you!
The trail takes you through beautiful fynbos which keeps changing along the route and of course the views were breathtaking. We spotted ostriches and bontebok, plenty of birdlife and some rather persistent baboons who tried to climb into our cottage.
It was incredibly hot over the weekend so I was applying suntan lotion non-stop but thankfully there were plenty of places along the way to swim and have a cool down. The hike wasn’t too difficult at all but the lack of shade and intense heat did make it a bit of a challenge.
We had a great group of friends which made it was such a fun experience. So if you’re a fan of walking and nature then I really recommend that you do this trail at some point! Thanks to Olivia for all the lovely pics!
