Cape Camino Country Route

Distance is approximately 330 km

Hosted by rural towns of the Cape Province.

A Camino is distinguished by sacred sites and local communities. South Africa’s wealth lies in her diversity: of sacred beliefs, communities and natural environment. The rural Western Cape is abundant with all these elements; mountains, rivers, viewpoints, farm lands, bird and animal life and your hosts: country hospitality. All provide an ideal space to journey.

A pilgrimage means to cleanse. You can choose to interpret this in any way. No matter what the faith, a pilgrim can connect with the sacredness within. As in life, there may be difficulties along the way. Take your time, be aware of your thoughts and reactions. And take from the experience, the lessons you may need to bring back to your everyday circumstance. This is the true essence of Cape Camino.
