Ship Wreck Hike

Family Activities Cape Town, Camps Bay

This is a wonderful 3 hour hike in Cape Point Nature Reserve. The first half is along the beach past several ancient shipwrecks. Wrecked on the rocks and then washed up onto the beaches these remains offer a glimpse into the tragic history of this treacherous coastline.

There is even a whale bone or 2 half buried in the sand.

This area of the reserve is quite isolated so we can enjoy kilometres of unspoilt beach on our own.

The trail then turns inland and takes you through the wilderness with wonderful sea views. The birdlife on this trail is spectacular and we often see game such as bontebok, ostrich, baboons and other wildlife along the way.

The Best of South Africa Travel map displays the locations of the destinations and accommodation that we have selected and visited; for each item, hovering over or clicking the marker will display a short summary and photo of that place or hotel, and hotel pricing. Follow the links in the info box to the full page listing which has much more information.

Note that the online map offers both a satellite view (click satellite in the top right) and, for some locations, a street level view (Drag the person in the top left onto the map). These let you explore the country; and when you wish to explore in person, or if you have any questions about the places you see, give our staff a call, or request a quote. Our staff regularly visit the places and accommodation that we feature.

When you book a holiday with us we will provide full driving instructions for reaching your accommodation, where necessary; these can be used by yourself, or you could enjoy the luxury of a driver. Alternatively we will arrange private (car rather than coach) transfers for you; helicopter transfers are also possible for some destinations.
