HIKING & NATURE TRAILS

Next to the famous Klipgat Trail along the coast between Gansbaai and De Kelders, there are several hiking trails along the coast and in the mountains in the hinterland. Guided nature walks are also on offer on several nature estates, educating you about the medicinal values of the local fynbos plants and forests or taking you up to stunning viewpoints on the highest mountain peaks.

Hikes with the local hiking club are organised every month and visitors are more than welcome. Ask the tourism information offices for more detail.
