The circular Sirkelsvlei Walk showcases Cape Point, the oceans and the landscape off ideally. It is a rather wild trail that starts with a steep incline, but then eases out. The entire route measures 7.5 kilometres and takes about three hours to complete. It is an easy trail that is quite rewarding, particularly in terms of the beautiful views along its entire expanse.

Animal-lovers should keep an eye open for red hartebeest, terrapins, malachite sunbirds, and more.

Should you not want to walk all the way back, it is possible to begin the trail at the entrance of the Cape Point Nature Reserve and have friends meet you at Olifantsbos.
