Sunday, the 12th of June 2011 - Intuition Walk – Table Mountains "BIG Five" Dam circular Walk - Cape Town

This walk started from Cecilia Plantation and gradually wound up Spillhaus Ravine, which overlooks Kirstenbosch till we got to the Jeep Track and passed the De Villiers dam (1907), with views over Hout Bay. The path then took us off to the left, past the Alexandra (1903) and Victoria reservoirs (1896). The gravel road then arrived at the Woodhead reservoir. Some impressive views where offered as one looks down into the Disa Gorge. To the right with the Disa Gorge on our left, the Woodhead (1897) and Hely-Hutchinson (1904) dams can be seen. We then visited the Water Works Museum, which holds a narrow-gauge railway engine and is a rare find of a museum, capturing the essence of life in Cape Town over 100 years ago. [Unfortunately it was closed] Our return route followed the Smuts Track on route back and down Spillhaus Ravine back to the starting point. The spectacular views and great soulful company were as always especially enjoyable. ...

Sunday, the 10th of July 2011 - Intuition Walk – Elephants Eye & Constantiaberg Walk - Cape Town
Our last Intuition Walk was on Sunday, the 10th of July 2011 - It was a circular route from the Silvermine Reservoir and up to Elephants Eyes Cave and then up to Constantiaberg, offering a 360 degree views, Hout Bay, Noord Hoek, Muizenberg. This has to be one of my favorites. The views on top where awesome ;-)

Elephants Eyes Cave, is the lofty, gaping hole that forms this open cave is aptly named Elephants Eye. It can be seen from the M3 when you look towards Constantiaberg. From this vantage point, an impressive view is offered of the Tokai Forests. We then return to Silvermine Reservoir via Steenberg Ridge, exploring some of this area. Did you know that the name Silvermine is a complete misnomer: although shafts were sunk in the area between 1675 & 1685, not one ounce of silver was ever discovered.  The spectacular views and great soulful company were as always especially enjoyable. ...

Sunday, the 31st of July 2011 - Intuition Walk – Vlakkenberg Circular Route Constantia Cape Town
It was a circular route around the top of Vlakkenberg walking past Vlakkenberg Peak, walking up Vlakkenberg Ridge from the parking area located at the end of Price Drive, located next to Groot Constantia Vineyards. This walk will offered spectacular views over Hout Bay, Tokai Forest, Table Mountain, not to mention some amazing views towards Groot Constantia and Klein Constantia Vineyards.

One of the High points of the walk, was walking through the dense Silver Tree Forest and on the way up a lot of the Indigenous trees have also been labeled.
Highly Recommended – This does not appear on the regular hiking maps
Between Vlakkenberg on the Price Drive side and Groot Constantia farm, lies a kloof with a small little known indigenous forest. Many old oak trees dominate the canopy, suggesting that the area was previously part of Groot Constantia farm. The forest was not affected by the fires in 2000 and contains many little streams and indigenous trees. A dedicated team of local volunteers keep this area free of alien vegetation.

The forest lends itself for a nice pleasant shady (up to 1 hour) walk in summer, so when planning a walk up Vlakkenberg from Price Drive a return via the forest compliments your hike by walking in a very different environment. Try it out and you will be pleasantly surprised! The spectacular views and great soulful company were as always especially enjoyable. ...

Sunday, the 11th of September 2011 - Intuition Walk – Spring Flower Walk - West Coast National Park
It was a walk in the West Coast National Park, to view the Spring Flowers, including drive and hike around the West Coast National Park. We viewed wildlife, great seascapes, out of this world flower vistas and the beautiful Langebaan Lagoon.

I think a high for all of us was the flower display in its entire splendor along the Bakoor Trail. We did not see any foxes, but we did see tortoises, eland and an impressive dung beetle. The BAKOOR TRAIL - 4.6km", this is a short walk from the Langebaan gate to Seeberg view point. A easy and highly recommended walk as you need to get up close to the flowers to really appreciate them, driving past them in your car.. is just not the same. From the Bird Hides, we did not see the full variety of birds on offer, but we did see quite a few flamingoes having an afternoon nap. On the way back we stopped at the Geelbek restaurant to for tea and delicious cake ;-)

One of the first thing you notice is the silence and tranquility, considering that the nature reserve is so close to a built up area. This was a place I definitely wanted to return to explore. There are 6 bird hides on route and on the way. I recommend stopping for lunch at the picnic area. ** Suggested Time at Destination: 3 hours min

From the parking area, the trail headed back towards the tunnel and, beneath the two bridges, a sign indicated the direction of the Elands River Trail. After about 30min we came to our first swim break and tea break. It was amazing how close we were to the N1, but you could not hear any traffic at all, just the sounds of nature….

From here the trail headed up the side away from the river. What was most noticeable was the huge variety of flowers and impressive valley views. The trail continued onto Fisherman's Cave, which was also second swimming pool stop and also the place that we had lunch. Such a beautiful place, that we could have stayed a lot longer there. On the way back we stopped for a welcome cool down swim, at the river swimming spot where we stopped for tea in the morning. This is a trail that I will definitely do again.

It Leisurely sunset walk from the parking area at Noordhoek beach towards the ship wreck of the Kakapo (26 May 1900). The Kakapo left Cape Town for Sydney on a misty night. Captain Nicolaysen saw Chapman's Peak and thought it was Cape Point. He turned sharp east but instead of cruising into False Bay he 'parked' his boat on Noordhoek Beach. Captain Nicolaysen ploughed so deep into the dune that his crew could step out of the boat without getting their feet wet! The Kakapo shipwreck is one, of what must be very few, completely visible shipwrecks in the world. We also had our supper here. The sunset walk will offered some spectacular views towards Hout Bay.

Sunday, the 18th of March 2012 -** 1 Day Hike - Intuition Walk – Day Palmiet River Trail - Kogelberg Nature Reserve - Nearest Town: The coastal town of Kleinmond - South Africa
It was a full day walk starting from the reserve's office building and then headed out on the trail alongside the Palmiet River. The trail followed the river and we stopped for lunch at a place called the beach, with its white sands, next to the river. Many of us also took the opportunity to have a refreshing swim, with others enjoy a relaxing snooze. The Palmiet River valley offered spectacular mountain visas, floral delights and views of cascading waterfalls. Natures energies within the valley certainly added to one feeling energized and relaxed…..

Kogelberg Nature Reserve is often considered the heart of the Cape Floral Kingdom, because of the exceptional quality of its fynbos. The reserve lies within the southern stretch of the rugged Hottentots Holland mountain range, and has remained isolated and remarkably unspoilt. Its high mountain peaks, steep kloofs, valleys and several tributaries of the pristine Palmiet River create a sense of remote wilderness. The reserve comprises a core area of 18 000 ha and several smaller fragments.

The trail is one of my favorites, from past experience and I always enjoy doing this walk again. Extra time was allocated to enjoy some of the interesting rock features and time to swim and relax.

We then walked via Minetes Grove and headed along to the Amphitheatre and stop for lunch in the indegous Forest in Echo Valley. This forest is also known as Amazon forest on the map and certainly lived up to its name. This is a Yellow & Milk Wood forest and certainly one of my favourites. From here we then headed back to the Sunbird Environmental Centre via Deadmans steps. It was Inge’s Fulford Birthday on the 20th of May 2012 and she brought along some delicious chocolate shortbread cake to share, that we had with coffee and tea after the walk

The botanical gardens where founded in 1932. Paarl Rock itself was actually NOT one of the more impressive rock features. What was way more impressive was the other two rock formations being Gordon’s Rock and Bretagne Rock, not to mention the dense forest that you walk through to get to the bottom of the two rock formations. There was also two large dams that we will walked passed and had lunch next to Bethal Dam. In the afternoon we had a tea break at Waterfall, which was flowing in force and make the perfect chill spot. This is definitely a walk that I will do again. Another one of those best kept secrets in Cape Town. The walk also offered some amazing 360 views of the surrounding wine estate and autumn colours added to the beauty.

It was an easy trail walk on the BAKOOR TRAIL - 4.6km", from the start of the Langebaan gate in the West Coast National Park to Seeberg view point for lunch.

Sunday, the 12th of May 2013 - Chapmans Peak from Hout Bay Walk - Table Mountain
It was a walk from Chapman’s Peak Drive Up to Chapman’s Peak, giving us a wonderful 360 degree views of Hout Bay, Noordhoek, Kommetjie, Fish Hoek and the Back of Table Mountain. Chapmans Peak must be one of the least hiked peaks on Table Mountain and if you can do Lions Head, then you will be able to manage this trail. It also takes about the same time to do this route. The meeting point was located 3km on the left from Hout Bay on Chapmans Peak drive. At the toll booth for Chapman’s Peak Drive, you can ask for a day pass. This will give you free access to the first part of Chapman’s Peak Drive. You will need to hand this back when you return via the toll booth. If you wish to continue through to Noordhoek you will need to pay the toll at the toll gate in Hout Bay.The spectacular views and great soulful company were as always especially enjoyable.

Sunday, the 9th June 2013 - Lower Contour Path towards Kloof Nek views over Camps Bay
It was a walk on the Lower Contour Path towards Kloof Nek Corner, taking in the Stunning views towards Camps Bay, Lions Head, Signal Hill and the Waterfront. The meeting point was on Tafelberg Road (the Road where the lower Cable car is located), at the start of the Saddle Path Walk. From our starting point, we then took a fairly easy upward zigzagging path as we walked to the Lower Contour Path, which runs parallel directly above Tafelberg Road. The route then took us on a level path past the Silver Stream waterfall, which flows in winter. This impressive waterfall was also the spot that stopped to have a tea break to take in the views. From there we walked on to the fire outlook, which has spectacular views of Kloof Nek and Camps Bay. This was also our lunch spot, as we enjoyed the breath taking views. The route then followed back the same way with alternative views, walking under the numerous waterfal.

Sunday, the 23rd of June 2013 - Intuition Walk – Elands River Trail - Du Toitskloof - South Africa
It was a full day walk that started in Du Toitskloof, immediately to the right after the Worcester exit of the Huguenot Tunnel. The meeting point was in the parking area at the tunnel control truck stop, about 70m from the tunnel. From the parking area, the trail headed back towards the tunnel and, beneath the two bridges, where a sign indicated the direction of the Elands River Trail. Our first break was along the river for a tea break and some even braved a swim in the rather chilly river. There are some swimming spots located just 30min from the start of the trail. We will definitely visit again in summer. The first few hundred metres of the trail was the hardest, as the path has been cut out against a very steep slope. This part certainly offered some spectacular views down into the river valley below. After this section the route became easier, following the river and at places the path swings away from the river, climbing quite high and providing panoramic views over the valley. The route then descended down towards Fisherman Cave. This was our lunch. Extra time had been allocated to enjoy some of the interesting rock features and time to swim and relax. After lunch we headed back the same route offering alternative views.
