The Route

Cape Camino® consists of 4 sections and makes up a total distance of approximately 580 km.

We've named the sections after the terrain/setting. Each section is between 7 and 9 days.

Pilgrims can walk any section they choose, in any order.


Section 1: Winelands 

Section 2: Farmlands & Community

Section 3: Sandveld & Strand

   Section 4: Peninsula 

Our end destination is the famous Table Mountain. 

We have called this pilgrimage route The Way of Table Mountain.

The length of each day is between 12-25 kms. 

Terrain is mixed: rural farmlands, gravel roads, beachscapes, wine lands, mountain footpaths, wheat fields, fynbos thickets, forests and suburbs.

Accommodation is also mixed: guesthouse, farm stay, home stay, private stay, upmarket and backpackers. A standard Camino includes a range of types. Lux and budget itineraries are also available. 

Hundreds of local and international pilgrims have walked the Cape Camino.
