What could be better than a fabulous hike by the light of the moon. No need to worry about sun block on this one. Enjoy the sunset with views of table mountain and the Cape Winelands from Klapmutskop while munching on a picnic. Once the sun has dipped away the moon will show its face above the Hottentots Holland Mountains.
The 9.75 km hike starts from the Dirtopia Trail Centre on Delvera Farm and is a circular route through the vineyards. The trail will take you through a Yellowood forest and Renosterveld to the peaks of KIapmutskop which is part of the Simonsberg Conservancy.
Shuttles are available at points in the route, specifically half way for kids or those who are not coping. Bring along your torch, pull on your hiking boots and make sure you have warm clothes on.
