The Hoerikwaggo Trail in the Table Mountain National Park (video)

The Hoerikwaggo Trail is a 5 day/4 night hiking trail through the Table Mountain National Park (TMNP) in and around Cape Town. Linking Cape Point with Table Mountain, the 75km trail is passing through peaks, forests, beaches and restricted conservation areas of the iconic National Park.

Hikers will require food, good walking boots, a backpack, water bottles, snacks and weather-proof hiking gear, as well as a specially trained trail guide or at least a good map of the area. Along the Hoerikwaggo Trail hikers will find 4 tented camps, which have been exclusively built for this trail. These accommodation camps are: Orange Kloof (Hout Bay), Silvermine (below Noordhoek Peak) Slangkop Point, near the Kommetjie Lighthouse, and Smitswinkel near the entrance to the TMNP's Cape Point section. There is no charge for hiking the trail itself, but hikers are required to pay entrance (Cape Point) and accommodation fees.  South Africa's outdoor & travel magazine "Go!" did not only produce and publish the video above (kudos!), but will also discuss the Hoerikwaggo Trail in their June 2012 issue. Get your copy and enjoy the beauty of one of South Africa's most scenic hiking trails!
