What you need to know before you go?
- There are 3 trails – 30mins, 2 and 4 hours (2km, 5km, 9km)
- The rocks and sand are slippery especially when misty so you need shoes with grip
- We did the 5km and whilst the gradient was steep and terrain challenging, it was flat at least fifty percent of the time
- Look out for the cape seals, whales board etc, and take a peak over the cliff because you could spot them
- Entrance fee – R50 per adult (April 2019)
- There are no toilets en route, only at the car park
- The road to the reserve and car park is tarred
- If you dont want to do the hike, there are amazing views from around the car park area
- If you travelling with kids or the elderly, then the 2km hike allows you to circuit back to the entrance
What to carry?
- Try to carry as little as possible.
- You must carry water and some lunch or snacks especially if you doing the 5km and 9km hike.
- Swimwear and a small towel if you keen on taking a dip.
- Cash for the entrance fees just in case.
- Your wildcard if you have one. For an annual fee one can access all nature reserves in SA with it.
- The weather changes here in 30 seconds so carry a warm hat, lightweight warm jacket with a hoodie etc
It’s an incredible feeling getting more acquainted with our beautiful country. Here’s a short vid on our Robberg Hike.
