Hiking


Hiking the Cape Winelands offers lush valleys framed by rugged mountain ranges. This provides a myriad of adventures available for the professional or novice hiker. The valley floors offer relaxed walks among the vineyards while the mountain slopes and crests offer a more challenging series of hikes through the Winelands indigenous fynbos vegetation. Many of our neighbouring wine farms in Stellenbosch and Franschhoek offer pleasant walks, meandering through the valleys and lower slopes. These walks can be combined with a catered picnic or a stop at local village restaurants for a leisurely lunch. Large tracts of the Stellenbosch and Franschhoek winelands are given over to nature reserves, and is home to numerous trails of varying degrees of difficulty. Trails can range from one or two hour walks, to three days mammoth excursions through valley’s and over mountain passes.

Running

Jonkershoek

Nine kilometers from Stellenbosch in the Western Cape, South Africa is the amazing Jonkershoek Nature reserve. The Jonkershoek mountains creates a landscape of high peaks and lovely valleys. Some of the routes are next to the Eerste river and one can deviate to three lovely waterfalls along the way. Look out for the overhang rock formation against the mountain as a clue to take the right path to the first waterfall. Great place for a picnic and a rest in the cool shadows of the waterfall. From here one can continue on wards to the second waterfall. The path is clear and varies between rocky and sandy areas. Most of the route is near water, so it is great to take a dip now and then, especially in summer.

Table mountain

The main feature of Table Mountain is the level plateau approximately 3 kilometres (2 mi) from side to side, edged by impressive cliffs. The plateau, flanked by Devil’s Peak to the east and by Lion’s Head to the west, forms a dramatic backdrop to Cape Town. This broad sweep of mountainous heights, together with Signal Hill, forms the natural amphitheatre of the City Bowl and Table Bay harbour. The highest point on Table Mountain is 1,086 metres (3,563 ft) above sea level, about 19 metres (62 ft) higher than the cable station at the western end of the plateau.
