Se7en’s Guide to Hiking in Cape Point and Silvermine…

Once a year in the Spring SANParks, South African National Parks, has a free week so that folk from local communities can visit their local park. All you need to gain free entry into one of the parks on this list is your ID Document. Please check the link for any special terms and conditions regarding the park that you would like to visit. We live within easy reach of Table Mountain National Park… and I thought I would post a collection of things to do in Cape Point, Silvermine and further afield, The West Coast National Park…

Easy Family Walks in Cape Point

The reason we love Cape Point so much is that there are so many things to do there. Of course you can drive down to the point and wander up to the lighthouse and view False Bay and the Atlantic ocean at the same time. What a lot of folk don’t know is that there are lots of very family friendly hikes to take and varying from short easy ambles to longer day long wanderings. As well as hiking there are a collection of beautiful and pristine beaches… beautiful sandy beaches and plenty of rocky shores for rock pooling too. There is a wide variety of animal life, and getting off the main drive through route seems to be the best way to see them…

West Coast National Park

Further afield the West Coast National Park falls under the SANParks umbrella and at this time of year you will experience the phenomenon of the Spring Flowers… carpets and carpets of beautiful flowers… as far as the eye can see. Honestly, this is unmissable and if you can possibly make the day trip then jump at the chance…
