Watch the sun set over Table Mountain with stunning views of the Winelands, toasting the New Year with bubbly and snacks on Klapmutskop! This 9.75km marked circle route through the vineyards gives you the unique experience of hiking through the Greater Simonsberg Conservancy and Yellowwood forest.
On the night, a shuttle service will be available especially for children to shorten the route to less than 5km, to take about 30 minutes to the top and be back at the Trail Centre start/end as early as 9pm.
Picnics from the adjacent Dirtopia Café are available for R80 per person and must be booked and paid for at least two days before – menu options at www.dirtopia.co.za, or bring your own picnic.
