Know More about this tour

In a little nature reserve above the green vineyards of Constantia, in the southern suburbs of Cape Town, is a trail that is suitable for families and friends alike who just want to have a relaxed walk/hike.

The trail starts at the entrance of Silvermine Nature Reserve. Your guide will lead you onto a jeep track above a lake. Here you will enjoy an easy walk up the hillside and on to an old fire lookout station above the green forests of Tokai below. At the lookout, you will see across False Bay and the Cape Flats to the Hottentots Holland Mountains in the distance.

Your passionate and knowledgeable guide will point out many points of interest and natural spectacles along the way. Enjoy the peace and quiet and connect with nature.

There is then a short walk to a large opening in the side of Constantiaberg Mountain. The cave is said to look like an elephant's eye in the head of this rock pachyderm that looks over the Cape Peninsula. Let your guide show you the resemblance. Rest inside the cool cave and spot the common Red Winged Starling flying in and out in search of food and a place to next.

You walk back will mostly be on a jeep track and will stop back at the lake for an optional swim and a moment to relax and take in the Cape sunshine on a warm day.
