Route Overview

This route begins in the Winelands of Wellington, Riebeek Kasteel and Tulbagh. Set nearby and alongside the Limietberge: rich soils, expansive valleys; nurseries to some of the finest wines in the world. Vineyards, olives, and Cape Dutch architecture!

After the Winelands, the Berg River provides life-giving water to a range of farming practices as well as the three Moravian communities all along the Piketberge. This is a unique and special section to explore. Four farmers on or near the river host the first four days from their farm homes - converted styles and other farm buildings. And two of the Moravian Church settlements are still home to communities of the church. The third has been sold and converted into a family homestead.

The quaint West Coast town of Aurora acts as the gatekeeper to the third section - the harsh and beautiful Sandveld and Strand. Not for the faint-hearted, these long stretches provide passage over the hills and into Redelinghuys. From there the route heads to the coast and hugs it for three majestic days of beach - some stretches inaccessible to the public.

The Cape Peninsula - 14 different sacred ways practiced; historical and architectural wealth. Social diversity. Culture and music and Cape Town vibes! And yet STILL with huge natural wildernesses: mountain slopes, deep wild waters, beaches, forests, fynbos, birds, whales, dolphins, baboons.

About Logistics

Since many of the hosts are the only stopover in the region, itineraries are designed to include services that would otherwise be difficult for the pilgrim to arrange.

In areas where there are many shops, pilgrims are encouraged to explore local villages- equipping themselves with anything they may need for their journey.

Accommodation is pre-arranged at different hosts each day.

Most days are chaperoned and when there is no chaperone the route is easy to navigate and safe. Parts of the Sandveld and Langebaan sections do not include chaperones.

Once pilgrims have made a booking with the administration office, the hosts on the route become the pilgrim’s first point of call on Camino. Contact details are put into the itinerary.

Please note: Cape Camino is a pilgrimage route, and our services are to assist you with your logistics. You are responsible for your own experiences. This includes interactions with hosts. We encourage you to do your own research on the area and on the sacred spaces you would like to visit, to make the journey your own and find your space on Camino.


Difficulty and terrain

See the FAQ section on our About Page.

Training: necessary and recommended. Incline and long distance walking with distances longer than 15km-20km per week need to be included in your training program. If you have health issues we recommend you take extra precaution. Pilgrims need to have a base level fitness for this Camino.

Pilgrims are welcome to get a lift with their host's luggage transfer service on days they feel they need a break.


Disclaimer

Accommodation establishments may change.
Distances vary. We have measured them many times and each time they are slightly different. This is due to the walking style and App being used.


Cancellation Policy

Cape Camino hosts and suppliers are all small business owners and are paid in advance. While we understand emergencies happen last minute we cannot guarantee a refund for cancellations. Full refunds are only available when cancellation is done a minimum one month prior to the start date. Pilgrims have the option of filling their space or postponing within a 3 month period (with consent from hosts regarding new date) when cancellation is done two weeks or more before the start of their Camino.
