Hoerikwaggo Trail – Adventures and hikes

The Hoerikwaggo Trail takes you all the way from Table Mountain to Cape Point. This Table Mountain Hoerikwaggo Trail has many beautiful footpaths surrounded by awesome views and fantastic flora… attracting the nature-loving, energetic and adventurous hikers out there. The word Hoerikwaggo comes from the Khoi-San word meaning ‘mountain in the sea’ which is what we commonly refer to as Table Mountain. Explore these Hoerikwaggo Trails on an organized and accommodated hike with SANParks (South African National Parks) and Jenman African Safaris.
This Hoerikwaggo trail starts off at Table Mountain taking you to Maclears Beacon (the highest point of Table Mountain!) all the way down to Orange Kloof Forest, passing one of the dams along the way. From there onwards you will head towards Silvermine and enjoy the magnificent views of False Bay... The Hoerikwaggo trail continues towards Kommetjie via Chapman’s peak, walking along and enjoying the beaches and the smell the fresh sea air - then you will make your way towards Simonstown and Cape Point where you will explore the beauty of the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve.
After a long days’ hike you will just be too happy to arrive at one of the Eco-Friendly Camps which were exclusively built for the Hoerikwaggo Trail. Each camp can accommodate 12 hikers, which also limits also the group size to 12 people. You will overnight in tented Camps that blend into the surroundings with comfortable beds. Each lodge has their own theme, which you will mainly see in the community areas, which are all equipped with fireplaces, braai facilities, and a big kitchen and not to forget – stunning views!
