Feeling elated after a magical 3 days hiking in an exquisite fynbos conservancy at Grootbos not far from Cape Town, organised by Frank Dwyer. Excellent food, great company and an expert local guide with a sense of humour kept us fascinated and amused with his bottomless knowledge of the geology, flora and fauna around us and how they all work together. We also got to taste the local wine, plant indigenous trees, and were sent home with gifts of their fynbos honey and a full colour book of all the fynbos species in the area. How amazing is that!? And with slackpacking you get nice accommodation every night (although sharing bathrooms), and luggage delivered, so you carry only water and a jacket while you walk. Heavenly!

Frank Dwyer arranged an awesome 2-week slack packing tour for us with an excellent mix of hiking, fine dining (his potjiepos was delicious!), Table Mtn, Fynbos, dramatic coastlines, whale watching, ancient forests, and wine tasting. Couldn't have asked for a better trip. Excellent host, braii matter, hiker, and guide.

The guide, Frank Dwyer, is knowledgeable about the many superb hikes around Capetown and beyond, he loves to talk about the local flora, fauna and the ecology. He is friendly, flexible and a keen judge of what his hikers can do. He is a careful driver with whom you feel safe even on the most treachorous mountain roads. I'd love to hike and drive with him again.

Frank and Ray were our guides for a fantastic five day walk from Cape Point to Table Mountain. As there are a couple of breaks in the route (due to local landlowners) it would be very complicated to walk this unsupported but Frank and Ray did a lot more that just sort out the logistics. They were both hugely knowledgeable about the flora, forna and history of this unique part of the world. On top of this Frank is a fantastic cook. Breakfast, lunch and dinner (including pudding) was included. Catering took into account a vegetarian and a fussy eater without problems. Four nights in lovely National Park accomodation with hot showers. Walking in the early morning to avoid the heat this wasn't an easy stroll but very satisfying. Reasonable fitness is required as, depending on the route, there is lots of scrambling. Well worth it for the views. The walk is a hidden 'Gem' which everyone should discover. Best of all there was always cold beer at the end of the day. Thanks Guys.

Frank Dwyer took our family of four up Skeleton Gorge and to the top of Table Mountain. The route is longer than the front way near the cable car but goes through the gardens and is very interesting. Frank was informative and helpful so if you enjoy hiking I'd recommend both him and this walk. It was around four to five hours and has 700 or 800 metres of vertical elevation so a reasonable level of fitness is advised to get the best out of the walk. Thanks Frank and have a good 2015.
