Business Overview

This marvellous mountain range is famous for its diverse fynbos species and forms part of the Cape floristic region, which is internationally recognised for its rich plant and animal diversity. The hiking trails were especially designed to educate and to give you some insight in this wonderful natural resource. Part of our education plan is the placing of information boards on the hiking trails. On these boards, you will find the plant's Latin names, the common and family names, as well as some other interesting information.

Products and Services Overview

The Cleft Hiking Trail

This hiking trail is a short trail up the mountain that takes approximately 30 minutes to walk and is suitable for the whole family. It starts at the cellar and leads up the cleft as clearly indicated on the signs next to the path.

The trail gradually slopes through a small piece of indigenous forest before you are all of a sudden surrounded by the ambience of the mountains. During the winter and spring time, there is a crystal clear stream that gently flows over the water catchment's reservoir. A bench overlooking this beautiful waterway is ideal for an enjoyable family picnic or a romantic sunset.

From the picnic area, the path leads up the cleft over 2 more bridges, before leaving the river bank. The trail gradually slopes to another lookout bench that is situated in an awesome surrounding overlooking the whole valley. The sunsets will blow you mind.

When leaving the lookout bench, the path slopes downwards through an Erica field. In spring, when the Ericas are blooming, the path has a sweet, honey scent and the flowers are a beautiful sight to see.

The Longer Hiking Trail

This hiking trail is 4.7 km long and is designed for hiking as well as cycling. It twists and turns and is equipped with brumes at the corners to handle the maximum speed for the extreme and action loving cyclists.

The path leads over the old railway line and then over the Waverley Hills dam. As indicated with arrows, it leads you up the river gorge and leads towards the Waverley Hills vineyards before turning into a Renosterveld field and leading toward the cellar.

In the piece of Renosterveld there is some extremely unique and endangered plant species, for example, the Leucadendron flexuosum is only known for one population, except for this few. In September, this field is a must to visit, because of its unique bulb composition.
