Walk SilvermineSilvermine Reservoir, Ou Kaap se Weg
There are some wonderful walks at Silvermine for those who want to burn off some energy and enjoy amazing views of Cape Town from all perspectives. There is a fee that needs to be paid at the entrance as this area falls under our countries national parks. You may also obtain a green card that allows you to go into 10 national park areas. We went this route because we visit many!
Our first time we spent the day at the dam. A lot of people gather here in summer to do a few lengths in the tea colour tannin-stained waters. The area is protected so great care is taken to ensure the bush and waters are not polluted.
On our second visit, we decided to do something a little more adventurous walk was the Elephant’s Eye route, which took us to a very special part of the mountain. We stayed for a while enjoying the views and having to bite on some picnic food we brought along. The eagle eye view is really worth taking the walk. We then diverted and walked to the Hout Bay birds eye view and were not disappointed. There is a complete view of the bay below with fishing boats cruising along slowly. A short walk from there leads you to a magnificent view of Sun Valley and Cape Point in the far distance.
Take plenty of water and some decent hiking boots. Cape Town experiences four seasons in a day so make sure you pack something warm to wear and have sunscreen applied.
