Deep in the heart of the Cape Floral region you will find the Fynbos Trail. This is a three day hike through fynbos covered hills, indigenous forests so don’t forget to stop and smell the flowers or to take a dip in clear mountain dams or under tumbing waterfalls.
The Perlemoen Trail has been given the prestigious Green Flag status. Green Flag is an accreditation program that approves hikes that adhere to quality principles and environmental standards.
You can hike for one or up to five days through Fynbos covered hills and along rocky shores while listening to pounding waves and the distinct sound of a giant breath being expelled by southern right whales just off the coast.
