Overview
More
Cape Camino is a walking pilgrimage route around the Cape Peninsula. Walk Your Way around the beautiful Cape Peninsula, meeting others while going about your own adventure. Inspired by Camino de Santiago, the route celebrates our special South African diversity, showcasing our sacred sites along the way. The terrain is peri-urban, through wine lands, beaches, fynbos thickets and through small communities all around Cape Town, South Africa. Distances are usually between 15 and 20km per day, but its all up to you. Just like in Spain, you get your passport and set off on your Camino. However, this passport gives you loads of discounts and value adds along the route, so you can stay cheaply wherever you go. And the route is found on Google Maps under ROUTE on the site. Then, If you'd rather have your logistics arranged for you, there is a team of Cape Camino experts who offer packages which range from 1 to 7 days on the route, which include guides and transport etc. While this team has identified the route, the route is owned by locals in Cape Town and used as a platform for opportunities and economic growth for the nation.
