A National Assest
A Camino is a National Asset that provides opportunities for the local communities that line the route keeping the pilgrim sheltered, fed, safe. Cape Camino supports 45 micro business for one single 9 day experience. Local chaperones offer safety and in return receive a very reasonable fee for their services. The concept brings employment opportunities and pumps millions of rands into neighbourhoods contributing, in every way, to empowering the nation. And with the ethos of respect for our diversity and sacred ways.
Cape Camino is a community owned initiative.

Gabrielle Mary Andrew
A born, bred and buttered South African. I have total faith that this country is great in every way. We have endured the heart wrenching pain of separateness; the greatest lie in all humanity. And now, we shall overcome, we shall triumph, together.
My skill is facilitation and my goal is to facilitate consensus within our powerful diversity. We have the same needs of decency and respect. The same needs for shelter, employment and safety. We need to hear our own voices, our history, our visions for the future. We all need spaces to play and work and worship. And it is in these spaces of worship that we find Grace.
A Camino is a route of Grace, offering opportunities to satisfy and fulfil our needs. So to facilitate this project is a delight and privilege for me.
I am a Cape Townian, come from a large socially active family, and have two magnificent children. My son Henry is a gaming fanatic, and my daughter, Peggy, works with me on Camino. A rare and heartfelt privilege.
I am 57 years old and live in Hopefield with my dog, Little Jock.
I believe in travel, not just in seeing other places, but feeling them.
Walking the Camino de Santiago in 2011 opened up a new perspective for me: That expectations will often not be met, but that’s OK. That very unlikely people can connect, and what a thrill that is. That new experiences are good for my soul.
My role is to manage our teams, produce and refine our experiences, liaise with service providers, communicate with pilgrims, promote the Cape Camino brand, and amongst other things, maintain the strong ethos central to Cape Camino: respect, inclusivity and pilgrimaging.
