Route

 

Cape Camino currently makes up a total distance of approximately 650 kms over 36 days.

The 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!

 

The Berg River then 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.

Aurora hosts the next section along this stretch and also 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, into Langebaan, Yzerfontein, Grotto Bay and farm stays near Darling.

Next comes 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 tops, deep wild waters, beaches, forests, fynbos, birds, whales, dolphins, baboons.
