HIKING

Cape Town offers some diverse locations to hike – all beautiful, some challenging and others gentle. Hiking is great way to spend a day outdoors and a rewarding way to get exercise and on these trips, you can also participate in bird-watching, wildlife study, photography or just simply connect and form an understanding and appreciation for the rich biodiversity around us. Let nature supply your noise and entertainment! No cellphone reception, no music, just the sound of the birds and the wind in the trees….

WHAT TO PACK:

All you need is your hiking boots, backpack, sleeping bag, pillow and sunscreen, and a smile!

TIPS:

Good footwear makes all the difference!

Drink plenty of water and keep yourself hydrated!

Dress appropriately for the weather – always have a hat and apply sunscreen!

HIKE HEARSAY:

“Dear Francois – what an amazing experience!  Thank you for taking such good care of us and helping my sissy of a sister up some of the more challenging paths.  We will be back.”
[Alvin and Margot Prince]


“Breathtaking views, beautiful scenery and just the sound of our huffing and puffing and your words of motivation, thanks Francois – we had a blast!”
[Lucy, Mickey and Tracey]

DID YOU KNOW:

It’s no coincidence that in addition to hats, shades and sunblock, many people hitting the trails are also wearing smiles. Brisk walking has long been associated with the release of endorphins, the body’s natural opioids, but there’s another reason for friendly trailside dispositions: bacteria.

Commonly found in soil, Mycobacterium vaccae stimulates the same neurons in the brain as Prozac does, according to a 2007 study in London—making getting dirty a plausible alternative to expensive medication in treating depression.
