Backpack and Camp on Stellenbosch Mountain

Danie Craven Stadium - Search Nearby - Added by Emile Kotze

An amazing overnight backpacking and camping adventure just 1 hour from Cape Town in the Stellenbosch Mountain. Once up on the plateau, there are truly breathtaking views of Cape Town and the surrounding areas; from Cape Point, False Bay, Table Mountain & Lion's Head in the distance to a major part of the Cape Winelands area. Once the sun sets, the landscape is illuminated with the lights from the towns and city below.

Start from from the parking area at the Danie Craven Stadium and follow road along the river up to the trailhead. It is a 2km walk to the trailhead which sits at about 200 meters of elevation. Follow the Stellenbosch Mountain Hiking Trail path for approximately 5 kilometers through the rocky landscape and find a suitable camping spot. We can provide a full map of the route on request.
