Lindsay arranges a hiking permit and then drives you into the Swartberg Pass with a picnic lunch, a bird list and map and you hike back down to Malva Draai, where beers or soft drinks will be cooling in the river. Choose between a 9km and an 18km route.
The Swartberg Mountains are part of the Cape Fold Mountain range, and the geological formations are chiefly of the Table Mountain group. The area is rich in Proteas and these are really beautiful when in bloom.
