Re: Hoerikwaggo Trails camp

Unread postby Lesego » Tue Jul 03, 2012 9:07 am

The Hoerikwaggo Tented Camps fall part of the Hoerikwaggo Trail (a 5 day hike from Cape Point to Table Mountain). The tented camps are dotted along the route as overnight accommodation for those doing the hike, and also just using the camps as separate accommodation.

It is not necessary to book to do the hike, only the accommodation need be booked. Orange Kloof tented camp falls in a restricted area of the park and is therefore only open to those who have booked the accommodation. Booking Orangekloof Tented Camp also acts as one’s permit to hike in this restricted area of the park. If not staying over at Orangekloof, a permit is required to hike this section.

So I assume these camps are accessible by car, at least this is what Sanparks website says now.

I'm trying to choose in which camp to stay - Orange Kloof, Silvermine or Slangkop. Anyone stayed in these camps? What is the main difference between them? According to the pictures they are all beautiful, especially the first two.

Thank you.
Peter

Approx time guidlines for the Hoerikwaggo Trail Daily?

Unread postby liindseyyves » Sun Apr 27, 2014 3:40 pm

Hi my husband and I are very fit but haven't hiked in awhile and are doing the Trail, and yes I know we will be sore as nothing compares to just getting out there. Can anyone advise us on approximate guidelines for the length of hiking and terrain each day so that we are able to take in the views and literally be able to walk the next day..Tks :think:
