Starting in Cape Town we head south along the Atlantic coast and climb Chapman’s Peak to the
view point over Hout Bay. We cycle through the beautiful coastal town of Kommetjie and past
the Slangkop lighthouse towards Cape Point Nature Reserve passing through the conservation
villages of Misty Cliffs and Scarborough.

Chapman’s Peak & Cape Point

Once inside the Nature Reserve we take a leisurely ride up to Cape Point for photo opportunities
and a walk to the lighthouse itself.

After getting some refreshments / lunch we head downhill to the Cape of Good Hope for pictures
and then it’s a short stop at the Cape Point Ostrich Farm before our onward cycle to Simon’s
Town where we call in at Boulders Beach, home to the penguins.
(Overnight here for the 2 day tour in Simon’s Town)

Boulders Beach & Simon’s Town

Once we are ready to proceed we cross the Peninsula at its narrowest point from Fish Hoek over
to Noord Hoek. We traverse Chapman’s Peak in the opposite direction back down to Hout Bay
via Llandudno to Cape Town.
(The above is 150 km or 95 miles approx over undulating terrain)
An alternative option is starting and finishing the above at our base in Fish Hoek. This
would then be a distance of 80km or 50 miles approx over undulating terrain.

Wildlife on our game reserve
Started in 1999 the wildlife reintroduction has seen the return of elephant, white rhino, lion and buffalo to the area. Antelope such as the Cape Eland, kudu, black wildebeest, zebra, springbok and gemsbok are now at home on the grassy plains. Smaller resident mammals such as the shy Cape Fox, bushbuck, caracal, bat eared fox, duiker and the elusive Cape Mountain leopard are a rare treat to spot on safari.

Garden Route Game Lodge was the first reserve in the Western Cape to reintroduce cheetah in 2007 and through our co-operation with the Endangered Wildlife Trust we have played a role in increasing the meta population of this threatened species in South Africa.

Fynbos and Aloes
Fynbos is the natural shrubland or heathland (habitat) vegetation occurring in a small belt of the Western Cape of South Africa, mainly in winter rainfall coastal and mountainous areas with a Mediterranean climate.

The fynbos ecoregion is within the Mediterranean forests, woodlands, and scrub biome.

Fynbos is home to an amazing diversity of plant species including many members of the Protea Family, Heath family,and Reed family of restios. The nearby town Albertinia is the heart of the thatching reed business which makes use of the female restio plant.

Aloes such as the Cape Aloe or Aloe Ferox occur in abundance and are still sustainably harvested or “tapped” for their healing characteristics using the same method traditional method of the Bushman.

FYNBOS
Fynbos is a type of heath land unique to the Western Cape of South Africa. It is the richest floral kingdom in the world. The Green Mountain Trail walks through the Kogelberg Biosphere, a 100,000 hectare area that is home to 1900 plant species – the densest in the world. Listed as an UNESCO World Heritage Site there are several endemics, among them the Marsh Rose (Orothamnus zeyheri), the Silver Pagoda (Mimetes hottentoticus) and Mimetes stockii.

FARMS
All the farms we visit are family owned and each has its own story.

BEAUMONT is a charming family-run farm and winery and is the final stop on the Green Mountain Trail where lunch and wine-tasting is enjoyed. It has the region’s oldest wine cellar, and is steeped in history, dating back to the 1700s.

OAK VALLEY is one of the largest in the area known for its fruit, cut flowers, beef cattle and for its high quality, cool climate, wines. It also produces acorn-fed, free range pork, that source their food from the 4,000 plus oak trees that give the farm its name.

PAUL CLUVER covering an area of over 2,000 hectares this is the largest farm in the Green Mountain Trail family. Half of the estate has been set aside for conservation into perpetuity. The farming of apples and pears is combined with a Hereford stud and ecotourism activities, including outdoor concerts, and adds to the wine production activities of the estate.

PORCUPINE HILLS is an olive farm and is the starting point for the walk. Black eagles nest on the cliffs directly above the homestead. The farm also boasts a large expanse of renosterveld, an endangered feature in the Cape Floral Kingdom.

WILDEKRANS COUNTRY HOUSE is a historic 1811 homestead with a rambling country garden. Home to a private collection of South African contemporary art and antique furniture, the atmosphere is relaxed, quirky and ancient, all rolled into one.

FOOD
The combination of fresh air and hiking never fails to build an appetite. The diversity of the area is also be appreciated by the palate where the food and wines enjoyed by trailists reflect the differences in soils and rainfall. Feedback from walkers describes the food as: ‘a veritable feast’ and ‘it’s as much a gourmet experience as it is a hike’. The cuisine is seasonal and fresh, produced on many of the participant farms. Apricots and apples, watermelon and winter melon, plums and peaches are just a few of the locally grown ingredients that find their way onto the dinner plates of Green Mountain Trail walkers.
Walkers frequently ask for the recipes of the dishes served on the trail so we figure we’re on the right track! Some of the favourites are: melanzane, slow-cooked lamb shanks, fresh herbed fish poached in Sauvignon blanc, and berry pavlova.

FURRIES
On the higher reaches of the walk hikers may catch sight of klipspringers standing like sentinels against the sky. Nesting Verreaux’s eagles is another special for the area.

Bontebok, grysbok, duiker, eland, zebra, springbok may all be seen on the plains while secretive leopard and caracal slip by unseen or by night.

With over 200 species of birds sighted in the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve the walker can expect to be rewarded with sunbirds, sugarbirds and many others. The evocative cry of the fish eagle may also be heard in the silence of the wild.

BEAUMONT is a charming family-run farm and winery and is the final stop on the Green Mountain Trail where lunch and wine-tasting is enjoyed. It has the region’s oldest wine cellar, and is steeped in history, dating back to the 1700s.

OAK VALLEY is one of the largest in the area known for its fruit, cut flowers, beef cattle and for its high quality, cool climate, wines. It also produces acorn-fed, free range pork, that source their food from the 4,000 plus oak trees that give the farm its name.

PAUL CLUVER covering an area of over 2,000 hectares this is the largest farm in the Green Mountain Trail family. Half of the estate has been set aside for conservation into perpetuity. The farming of apples and pears is combined with a Hereford stud and ecotourism activities, including outdoor concerts, and adds to the wine production activities of the estate.

PORCUPINE HILLS is an olive farm and is the starting point for the walk. Black eagles nest on the cliffs directly above the homestead. The farm also boasts a large expanse of renosterveld, an endangered feature in the Cape Floral Kingdom.

WILDEKRANS COUNTRY HOUSE is a historic 1811 homestead with a rambling country garden. Home to a private collection of South African contemporary art and antique furniture, the atmosphere is relaxed, quirky and ancient, all rolled into one.

FOOD
The combination of fresh air and hiking never fails to build an appetite. The diversity of the area is also be appreciated by the palate where the food and wines enjoyed by trailists reflect the differences in soils and rainfall. Feedback from walkers describes the food as: ‘a veritable feast’ and ‘it’s as much a gourmet experience as it is a hike’. The cuisine is seasonal and fresh, produced on many of the participant farms. Apricots and apples, watermelon and winter melon, plums and peaches are just a few of the locally grown ingredients that find their way onto the dinner plates of Green Mountain Trail walkers.
Walkers frequently ask for the recipes of the dishes served on the trail so we figure we’re on the right track! Some of the favourites are: melanzane, slow-cooked lamb shanks, fresh herbed fish poached in Sauvignon blanc, and berry pavlova.

FURRIES
On the higher reaches of the walk hikers may catch sight of klipspringers standing like sentinels against the sky. Nesting Verreaux’s eagles is another special for the area.

Bontebok, grysbok, duiker, eland, zebra, springbok may all be seen on the plains while secretive leopard and caracal slip by unseen or by night.

With over 200 species of birds sighted in the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve the walker can expect to be rewarded with sunbirds, sugarbirds and many others. The evocative cry of the fish eagle may also be heard in the silence of the wild.

The little seaside village of St James lies just past Muizenberg en route to Kalk Bay, set against the mountain with incredible sea views and one of the prettiest little beaches.

St James’ beach – of the colourful beach huts – also has a large tidal pool, is very popular with locals, and in summer holidays is packed with a variety of people and their children. This is largely because the beach is so well sheltered from the notorious winds of Cape Town, but also because it offers safe swimming and is conveniently close to the Simons Town train line.

This is largely because the beach is so well sheltered from the notorious winds of Cape Town, but also because it offers safe swimming and is conveniently close to the Simons Town train line.

The residential suburb, very close to Rhodes’ cottage, is much sought after and many of the homes date back to the time when the Cape was a colony of the Victorian empire. St James is named after the St James Roman Catholic Church, built in 1858 for the Filipino fishermen of Kalk Bay, just up the road.

Danger beach, the other little beach of St James, was used in the whaling industry during the early 1800s, as a place to haul carcasses. Kalk Bay is within walking distance and offers a further delightful ambling opportunity, through cobbled streets and a main road lined with an eclectic mix of antique and bookshops, restaurants, coffee bistros and clothing boutiques.

Boyes Drive, which runs up above St James, offers further magnificent views over False Bay and is a wonderful spot from which to spot whales in season.

SHARK CAGE DIVING SEAL ISLAND, SIMON'S TOWN
Apex Shark Expeditions morning shark tours offers guests a chance to observe natural predation, breaching and experience shark cage diving - all on one trip. We take small groups of no more than 12 guests, allowing each guest excellent viewing opportunities as we share our knowledge and passion for these creatures. Guests can book a day trip or a longer more specialised expedition.

Morning:
Feb to Apr: Shark cage diving and a possibility to witness scavenge events

May to Sep: Breaching, natural predation and shark cage diving.

Meeting:
Approximately 06H30 in Simon’s Town, 45 minutes from Cape Town. Exact time confirmed the day before the trip.

Transfer:
Door to door transfers arranged on request.

Duration:
3 to 4 hours at sea.

Guests:
Maximum 12 guests, plus 4 crew.

Cage size:
5 divers – No experience required. 20 – 30 minutes cage time.

Trip includes:
Coffee / tea, light breakfast, passionate crew, educational booklet, dive gear, light lunch, snacks & refreshments.
ITINERARY: FEBRUARY TO APRIL
Although this is not peak season for seeing natural predatory events and breaches, Great White Sharks are actively scavenging on sick or dead seals that wash off Seal Island and there is a good chance of observing natural scavenge events.

06H00
Meet the crew at the Apex Shark Expeditions shop. After a light breakfast, guests are welcomed aboard White Pointer II. A full safety and weather briefing is given before departure.

06H30
Depart for Seal Island which is a 25 to 35 minute boat ride based on sea conditions.

07H00
Arrive at Seal Island. Based on what the weather is doing, we will decide on the best spot to weigh anchor and begin attracting sharks to the vessel.

The cage is then deployed, where it floats next to our vessel. Once a shark approaches our boat, a bait is kept in the water to keep the shark around long enough for identification, viewing and shark cage diving purposes. At no point are the sharks purposefully fed or handled and all efforts are made to prevent the sharks from making contact with our vessel.

If the weather conditions are favourable, guests will be readied for shark cage diving. Safety precautions and operational procedures are then explained to any guest wishing to enter the cage. It is important to know that the sharks come very close to the boat so it is not necessary to dive in order to see them. Those not wishing to dive will have excellent views of the Great White Shark.

11H00 + -
White Pointer II will arrive back in Simon’s Town Harbour depending on the weather conditions and shark activity.

ITINERARY: MAY TO SEPTEMBER
As winter begins and the seal colony blossoms, the sharks begin to change their behaviour and begin actively hunting Cape Fur seal pups. These months are best to view natural predation events and breaching.

06H00
Meet the crew at the Apex Shark Expeditions shop. After a light breakfast, we will deliver a full safety and weather briefing aboard White Pointer II before departure.

06H30
Depart for Seal Island which is a 25 to 35 minute boat ride based on sea and weather conditions.

07H00
Arrive at Seal Island.

We arrive early as this is the optimum time to view the sharks actively hunting the Cape Fur seals. Our data indicates that half an hour before sunrise to one and a half hours after sunrise is the best time to witness this natural event.

Once the hunting quietens down and based on what the weather is doing, we will decide on the best spot to weigh anchor and begin attracting sharks to the vessel. The cage is then deployed, where it floats next to our vessel.

It is important to know that the sharks come very close to the boat so it is not necessary to dive in order to see them. Those not wishing to dive will still have excellent views of the Great White Shark.

A light lunch of rolls with cold meats (or a vegetarian option), accompanied by soft drinks, fruit juice, bottled water and a variety of snacks are available throughout the course of the morning.

11H00 + -
White Pointer II will arrive back in Simon’s Town Harbour depending on the weather conditions and shark activity.

If the weather conditions are favourable, guests will be readied for cage diving. Safety precautions and operational procedures are then explained to any guest wishing to enter the cage. It is important to know that the sharks come very close to the boat so it is not necessary to dive in order to see them. Those not wishing to dive will still have excellent views of the Great White Shark.

KELP FOREST DIVING AT ITS BEST
The Seven Gill Cow Shark, or Spotted Cow Shark, is a prehistoric predator and can be found roaming kelp forests. It is a social feeder and can be observed in large groups of up to 18 individuals. The size of the sharks ranges from 1 to 3 metres, with the females generally larger than the males. Distinctive features include their seven gill slits and the absence of the front dorsal fin.

The dive takes place at Pyramid Rock in False Bay.The site is one of the few places in the world where you have a chance of encountering this rarely seen shark. We may encounter a variety of other small shark species as well. A thick kelp forest lines the channel making this the shark’s ideal habitat.

The Boat


The vessel you will be diving off is a zodiac rib boat, which is standard for South African diving operators. There are no facilities on board except for a small cubby hole for keys and sunglasses.
We advise you to leave all your personal belongings behind.

Cage:
No cage required.

Dive certification:
Minimum of Open Water One or Freedive

Dive Depth:
6 to 12 metres (20 – 40 feet).

Water temperature:
12 to 20 Degrees Celsius.

Water visibility:
3 to 10 metres.

Dive time:
30 to 60 minutes.

Dive gear:
Included in cost

Transfers:
Door to door transfers available upon request.
As these dives are specialised, we partner with a certified operator. Exact itinerary timings will be confirmed the day before the trip.

Meet
45 minutes from Cape Town at the Apex Shark Expeditions shop or on the Simon’s Town pier. Here you will sign an indemnity form and collect your dive gear.

The launch site
Millers Point is a 15 minute boat ride from the Simon’s Town pier. The boat is a rubber duck with minimal facilities.

The dive
The dive takes place in a channel approximately 12 metres deep. Divers descend to the sandy bottom and wait for the Cow Sharks. Should they appear, the sharks usually swim slowly up and down the channel. They are very confident and can pass at arm’s length from the divers which makes it a great opportunity for underwater photographers. By the end of the dive you may recognise the individual sharks by distinctive bites, scrapes or coloration.



All dives are weather permitting and subject to good sea conditions.

Get passionate, in-depth, one-on-one insight from a professional art specialist as you discover trendy hotspots and unconventional locales at your own pace, on your own tour. Culture Connect SA specializes in providing expertly curated private art tours.



Immerse yourself in Cape Town’s rich heritage with guided historical walking tours. Take in the natural beauty, the history and the harvest of the Cape Winelands. Navigate to the 200-year-old naval base in Simon’s Town. Learn about the indigenous people of Cape at San Culture Centre !Khwa ttu. Give ear to local storytelling in Langa township, and even discover the hidden history of Freemasonry in the Cape.
Favourite heritage in Cape Town’s centre
With September being heritage month in South Africa, here are a selection ofe buildings, art and design relating to its past. Starting with architecture and the built environment:

Tuynhuys – a beautiful facade showing what 18th century Cape Town would have looked like. First it was a tool shed for Company’s Gardens, hence its name which means garden house! But for over two centuries its been for the highest political authority of the land (it is next to Parliament). It is now part of the President’s office and extremely hard to get access to. Next to Parliament, the main facade is visible from Government Ave. It was restored – based on old records, a hidden balustrade and the expert judgement of the conservation consultants and client. (One of the team felt so strongly that the cherubs were too large, he resigned from the appointed architectural practice!).

The old shul, now part of the South African Jewish Museum, Hatfield St, I like the quality of displays, simplicity and the way it is so well maintained. It tells the story of how Cape Town developed from the point of view of Jewish immigrants from overseas – there is a ramp leading from one part of the museum to another, reminiscent of a ship’s gangplank. As a European immigrant myself, albeit Christian, this has a resonance for me. Its small portico is Art Deco ‘Egyptian’ in style. It can be seen from Company’s Garden, next to the much grander, newer synagogue.

Company Garden’s Visitor Centre – a small heritage building, on the Queen Victoria Rd side of the Garden. It has a very good exhibition about the Garden’s history. Home to Cape Town Heritage Trust, there is a small ‘heritage’ shop and you can book fynbos tea tastings and info sessions (it is easy to forget the Cape’s hugely important and unique natural heritage, fynbos.)

The Hanafee Mosque at the corner of Dorp and Long Street. I like its size, proportions, exterior’s details colours and the way they use outside for praying too occassionally. I’ve been allowed in, without asking in advance, which I really appreciate.

Wagenaar reservoir ruins and model underground in Golden Acre – an unexpected location and a good reminder about water being so precious and why Cape Town developed. It is also reminds me of how the sea used to be so much closer to the centre of town pre the massive land reclamation, starting in the 1940s.

Grand Central, Darling Street – the former main post office. This huge building is a good reminder of how important the mail ship and post were. Its tall, modern ‘Art Deco’ style caused quite a stir when it opened. The original 1940s stone carvings and old Post Office counters are still in situ and a huge contrast to its current use as a market stalls selling all sorts from hair braiding to fried food!

Koopmans-de Wet House, Strand St, the exterior is Cape Neo-Classical as its finest (but it does need some maintenance work!). It helps me imagine what Cape Town would have looked like in the 19th century. I like the sound of its last owner, Maria Koopmans-de Wet – she was a heritage activist! She campaigned to stop the Castle of Good Hope being knocked down about 100 years ago.

Prestwich Memorial, corner of Buitengracht Street and Somerset Road – like the Company Garden’s Visitor Centre, it has a really good small heritage exhibition. Off to one side is the ossuary with over 2 500 boxes of bones from nearby unmarked graves, probably slaves, sailors, poor people, and Khoi. There is a really sad side to much of Cape Town’s heritage that shouldn’t be ignored.

Turning now to art – it can be a brilliant way to convey the invisible past, in a contemporary and sometimes surprising way:

Artists’ Wilma Cruise and Gavin Younge The Memorial To The Slaves – 11 granite blocks laid out across Church Square – silent, poignant reminders of who really built Cape Town.

Jacques Coetzee’s Open House, a bright, large and fun artwork referencing the colonial style buildings on Long St where it is, and RDP houses built by the government in townships. Its hard to depict 20 years of democracy, but this works for me.

For a reminder of how Africa used to be seen with a colonial lens of the mid 20th century, the frieze around Mutual Heights – South Africa’s first sky scraper (I recommend popping into the lobby on Darling Street to see the high gold ceiling and marble walls – it is like stepping back in time and the Empire State Building in New York)

Homecoming Centre’s gates, District 6, Buitenkant Street based on an artwork by the late Peter Clarke. One of the most beautiful burglar bars in town! And a lovely way to enter this renovated heritage building which I always enjoy visiting for events and exhibitions.

Artist Roderick Sauls’ apartheid-era benches outside the High Court Annex on Queen Victoria Street one for whites only, the other not. It seems bizaar that people were sent to this court to see if a pencil would stay in their hair – if it did, they were classified as black, in aparteid.

Joburg based artist, Ruth Sach’s Cissie Gool Memorial (Longmarket at the Buitenkant Street end) – often used to sit on by smokers, unaware that it is an artwork or memorial!

Conrad Botes’ Purple Shall Govern commemorating the End Conscription Campaign’s commandeering the Police’s dye spraying in 1989 (Burg and Church Streets).

Keen to explore Cape Town’s art culture but don’t know where to begin? A visit to some of the city’s most prominent art galleries is a great way to start. Take a look at our list of some of Cape Town’s best art galleries.

NORVAL ART FOUNDATION
Well worth the short drive out of town! New purpose built museum and sculpture garden, focusing on South African ‘greats’. It centres around Louis Norval’s significant private collection, with an impressive line-up of temporary exhibitions. Like most South African art spaces, it is not too big and has a good range of events.

Address: 4 Steenberg Rd, Steenberg Estate, Cape Town, 7945
Telephone: 087 654 5900
Opening hours: 10am – 5:15pm (closed Tuesdays) and open until 7:15pm on Saturdays

IZIKO SOUTH AFRICAN NATIONAL ART GALLERY
South Africa’s first art museum, the Iziko South African National Gallery, has wonderful old galleries – wooden floor boards and high ceilings. Exhibitions are usually contemporary South African art, interspersed with works from its extensive historical collections. It has an active Friends scheme that is well worth joining if you live in Cape Town, or visit regularly.
