Cape Town is known for its stunning vistas and magnificent landscape. A rather different side to the Mother City is showcased on the walk from Kalk Bay to the Amphitheatre, which begins on Boyes Drive just above St James.

The views from here show off the suburb of Kalk Bay, which has become more like its own little town, as well as the splendours of Seal Island, False Bay and the Hottentots Holland Mountain Range in the distance.

The trail covers about six kilometres, including sections of yellowwood, Cape beech and assegai tree forests. The Amazon Forest, also known as Kroon se Bos, is located in the Echo Valley, and gives hikers the opportunity to immerse themselves in the beauty and serenity of the Cape, perhaps while enjoying a picnic.

Hikers need to be moderately fit to complete this walk, which usually takes between three and four hours.
