FYNBOS TRAIL - Walker Bay Nature Reserve

The Fynbos Trail is a unique nature experience in the heart of the Cape Floral Kingdom that can be undertaken as a fully guided and catered slackpacking trail or as a self-guided and catered trail. This trail, just two hours from Cape Town and close to Hermanus Overberg, has a two or three-night option and takes hikers along a beautiful stretch of trail through coastal and mountain fynbos, remote forests and visits some fascinating environmental and social projects along the way. Ideal for those looking for a walking holiday in Cape Town, South Africa.

 

The Trail

The Fynbos Trail has a two or three-night option and takes hikers along a beautiful stretch of trail through coastal and mountain fynbos, remote forests and visits some fascinating environmental and social projects along the way.

As you drive down the R43 between the Overberg villages of Stanford and Gansbaai you have no inkling of the treasures hidden in the hills to your left. The three-day, 26km trail meanders through hidden pockets of the indigenous forest alive with birds, to Tolkeinesque dells of dense lichens, tumbling waterfalls and streams and, you guessed it, through exquisite fynbos. It's true voyage of discovery, led by a passionate, expert guide who points out the various endemics and rare species and explains the role the various birds, ants and other propagators play in the eco-system.

The trail starts at Growing the Future Sustainable Agriculture and Life Skills College on Grootbos Nature Reserve. From Growing the Future, the trail leads through coastal strandveld into the Steynsbos Milkwood forest, one of only eight milkwood forests of its type in the world, all of which are found in the Stanford-Gansbaai area. The first night is at the very comfortable Fynbos Retreat, also on the Grootbos Nature Reserve, then on day 2, you hike down through a beautiful valley - characterised by an extraordinary mosaic of fynbos - into the lush, green Witwoetskloof forest. After a night at Witkrans, the trail ends with a short walk through more indigenous forest and fynbos-clad hills to the upmarket and superbly located, Grootbos Garden Lodge where you celebrate the end of the trail with a leisurely lunch overlooking the magnificent Walker Bay.
