Hoerikwaggo Trail – Flickr pic of the day

Blog Featured Image

The Hoerikwaggo Trails in Table Mountain National Park take in all the natural attractions of the park – beaches and mountain – as well as some city highlights.

This image was taken on one of the trails by our Cape Town. Live it. Love it. group member Tamlin Wightman aka limbo pony.

Tamlin says, “We were on a two-day hike from Silvermine Dam to Table Mountain on the Hoerikwaggo Trail. We stayed the night at the Orange Kloof tented camp after the first day of hiking. It is in this Afromontane forest and it’s private, so you’re all alone in the wilderness. The first day you hike about 17,5km and the second day about 15,4km.

“Towards the end, you can see the rare disa flower – if your legs aren’t aching and you can still look up. I’ve done the hike twice and someone’s chickened out halfway both times.

“On the second day we took the cable car down, which was blissful after hiking up and up and up nonstop.”

Do you have images of Cape Town you’d like to share with us? We’d love you to join the Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group!
