Fall asleep under a myriad stars and awake to the healing sounds of nature. The picturesque and comfortable Hoerikwaggo Tented Camps are situated in unrivalled natural surroundings offer the ideal getaway

Smitswinkel is situated just over the road from the entrance to Cape Point, lies in the shade of a weathered flowering gum tree plantation (this camp is the only camp that offers ensuite bathrooms).  Slangkop is nestled within indigenous Milkwoods,100 m from the sea in Kommetjie. Orangekloof near Hout Bay is nestled within the ancient Afromontane Forest renowned for its rare Disas.

Each Eco-Friendly camp can accommodate a maximum of 12 hikers in 2 sleeper or 4 sleeper tents. All camps offer hot water, comfortable beds, open fires, fully equipped self-catering communal kitchens/dining areas and communal bathrooms. Linen and one towel is included per person. All camps are easily accessible by car and have dedicated parking areas.

Children are welcome at all the camps but we recommend Orangekloof as it has a 4 sleeper tent.

The tented camps were designed and built as base camps for the Hoerikwaggo Trail, a 1 to 5 day hiking trail traversing 75km through the world heritage site of Table Mountain National Park (TMNP) from Cape Point to the foot of Table Mountain. More info...

*Please note that the due to the Wild Fires of March 2015, Silvermine Tented Camp was damaged  and is no longer available.  Part of the trail from Slangkop - Silvermine is no longer possible.

  we recommend it...

We recommend hiking in Cape Town and staying overnight at the tented camps. The Hoerikwaggo Trail is an iconic 5 day, 4 night hiking trail covering 75km through Table Mountain National Park.
Hoerikwaggo means “the mountain in the sea”  from the nomadic Khoisan people who hunted and gathered on these mountains.  You do not have to hike to stay in any of the tented camp accommodation venues.

The Trail can be done in its entirety or in 2 day, 1 night sections.  There are many other walks and hikes on Table Mountain, some can be done independently but we recommend a guide if you are not familiar with the mountain and the weather of Cape Town. Read More...

Hoerikwaggo Hiking Trail: Table Mountain National Park 
There is no charge for hiking the trail independently, however hiking with a guide is recommended. All entrance fees, cable way fees and accommodation fees are for your own account. Porterage, guides and shuttle services can be arranged on request. The trail is not signposted so a good map is recommended.

Cape Point – Smitswinkel  (15 km)
Start at the Cape Point Lighthouse and walk through the reserve to end at Smitswinkel tented camp which is about 300 metres from the Cape of Good Hope entrance gate. (Note: entrance fees to the reserve are excluded from the accommodation fee and hikers need to arrange transport from the tented camp to the starting point of Day 2 on Red Hill in Simon’s Town.  Difficult day.

Red Hill – Slangkop (12 km)
Start at the Klein Plaas Dam signboard along Red Hill above Simon’s Town. Great views to Table Mountain to the north and Cape Point to the south as you cross the Table Mountain  chain, over the ridge to the Atlantic Seaboard, then drop down to Kommetjie and the tented camp at Slangkop which is nestled between milkwood trees, near the Slangkoppunt Lighthouse.  Moderate day.

Slangkop – Silvermine (21km) CLOSED
You can still hike along the long stretch of Noordhoek beach to the carpark.

Silvermine – OrangeKloof (15.5km)
Wake up on the mountain and depart from Silvermine camp, where you walk to the viewpoint at the top of Noordhoek Peak, overlooking Hout Bay and then traverses through mountain fynbos with a few climbs over Constantiaberg and Vlakkenberg before dropping down to Constantia Nek and the Orange Kloof tented camp. Challenging Day.

Orange Kloof to Tafelberg road (9.5km)
Depart from Orange Kloof tented camp and ascend up the back table via Disa gorge and walk up to Woodhead Dam, then through the Valley of the God to reach the Upper Cable Way station. Hikers descend via Cable car where the trail ends at the lower Cable Way Station.  Hikers may choose to descend by foot via Platteklip gorge.  Note that the cable way fare is for own cost. Orange Kloof is a restricted area and permits are necessary. Difficult day.
