Greetings

My aim is to Connect like-minded people in a sense of community who share similar soulful interests out in nature ;-)

A reminder for those who have not been on the walks before, the walks are intended to be of such a nature that we are  able to slow down and through our senses, experience some of the wonders that nature has to offer. The slowing down creates an opportunity for re-connection within. Not to mention seeing some of Cape Town's magical spots.

This is for those that are concerned about fitness in joining.

We cover the same routes as most other groups, but take longer as more time is allocated to breaks (Normally about 2 hours during the day). This extra time provides is a day out in nature, time to connect with the beauty of nature, including plenty of opportunity for taking pictures. Our mission is to provide an enjoyable day out in nature and meet like-minded soulful people.  As group safety are paramount, we walk at the pace of the slowest person, (without any pressure). There is always an experienced hiker at the rear to assist anyone who is struggling and ensure no-one is left behind. We have first aid kits as well as at least 2 x two-way radios on all the walks to enable communication between leader and the person covering the rear at all times.

This is the perfect group you if are a beginner, with every second walk suitable for all levels of fitness and this will give you a chance to build up fitness levels.  I also do not repeat a hiking route within a 12 month cycle, which offers an expanded range of walks on offer. If hike is more strenuous or exposed, this will be communicated in the walk description, indicated by comparing against popular hikes (for example Lions Head)

#######################################

==> WHAT TO BRING ALONG & SAFETY GUIDELINES

*These requirements are for all walks if you wish to join, as individual safety affects the whole group*

@ -- MOST IMPORTANT – PROPER FOOTWEAR. This being comfortable walking shoes (hiking boots for ankle support) or a good pair of running shoes. Please no crocs or sandals and do not come on a walk without any shoes or bare feet. You need to have a decent grip on the trail, as your safety affects the whole group. Also bring along a black bag to sit on in winter to keep your pants dry, if the grass or rocks are wet.

@ -- Bring along something to eat for the tea break and lunch, trail snacks / fresh fruit, juice or flask for tea / coffee or cup a soup in winter. Sunblock very important and don’t forget your water, this should be at least 2 litres and more if it is a hot day. En route you should be drinking at least 1 full cup every 60min.

@ -- What to wear on the hike. Comfortable hiking clothes (trousers / shorts). In winter long pants are preferable due to the change of temperatures. Jersey or fleecy top. As the weather often heats up during the day, it is good to wear clothes that you can layer on or off. Pack extra, thinner tops as gusty wind can cause the temperature to change quite dramatically. Remember a warm hiker is a happy hiker ;-). In summer a peak cap for the sun, in a winter beanie or buff and gloves just in case and very important a raincoat no matter the weather conditions, as this also acts as a windbreaker.

@ -- A backpack (or daypack) to carry your supplies. A backpack with a hip belt is ideal; it allows the strong bones of your pelvis to support the pack's weight, easing the load on your shoulders.

@ -- As this is a group walk, stay with the group and for the entire duration of the hike. We depart and arrived back as a group, this is non-negotiable, as anyone leaving early affects the whole group.

***Please note that no dogs are allowed on any of the walks that are on offer.
