Cape Camino™ consists of 4 sections and makes up a total distance of approximately 580 km. Our end destination is the famous Table Mountain. We have called this pilgrimage route Cape Camino, The Way of Table Mountain.
We've named each sections after the terrain/setting.
You can walk any section you choose, in any order. You can't go wrong so explore one now and return for the others.
Section 1: Winelands
Section 2: Farmlands & Community
Section 3: Sandveld & Strand
Section 4: Peninsula
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!

Farmlands & Community
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.
