About Cape Camino
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.

As the days went by, I realized that with every step, I was walkig away from unimportant and unnecessary stuff. Life is not about "things" but about God, the Creator of all things. There is silence and peace that I can not really describe.

The most wonderful experience for the mind and body. We did the Mountain Shade route (20km, from Rhodes Memorial to Constantia) on Day 1 and Wine to Water route (20km, from Constantia to Muizenberg) on Day 2 over a weekend. It can be a personal pilgrimage or be enjoyed as a couple or with friends. You can decide to take time for yourself and/or join in on the group conversations enroute, make it your own! The accommodation for the Saturday evening was included in the package and was brilliant. The sites/stops/restaurants were well-planned and superb. Bring: Comfortable walking shoes, comfortable walking clothes (check the weather), waterproof backpack with overnight items, suncream, hat, camera, notebook, snacks/lunches, lots of water!

Wow. My participation in the Cape Camino 1000 launch was a very special one. To start with the people in the group I traveled with; I met some beautiful souls who made my journey a very memorable one. And then putting yourself to the challenge of hiking long(er) distances in these vast terrains and stunning surroundings is an amazing experience. This part of South Africa is absolutely worth exploring and doing it on foot makes it a very very special encounter.

The launch of the Cape Camino 1000km was much more than I expected. Off the beaten tracks winding through part of the Western Cape took me to places I never thought I would visit, some I’ve never heard of. Pleasant was my surprise coming across exquisitely beautiful farmland, vineyards, and interesting vegetation. Friendly hosts added to this unforgettable experience. As a hiker of many caminos and long distance trails I can fully recommend the Cape Camino 1000. With plenty of time and opportunity for reflection this could become a soulful inner journey to be treasured.

Absolutely life changing. We walked for 11 days through the Cape Winelands from Wellington to Aurora. The pilgrimage allows one to take as much time as they want and fill their time with thorough introspection. It has opened my eyes to the South African way of life and farm life
