Inspired by the Camino de Santiago, the famous long-distance pilgrimage hiking route in Spain, the 9 leg, 169km-long Cape Camino was launched by mother-and-daughter team Gabrielle Andrew and Peggy Coetzee-Andrew in 2015. Local guides and small business, such as cafes and guesthouses, are involved, and the Camino passport entitles you to discounts along the route.

The Camino promotes peace, unity and sustainability. Portering of your bags can be arranged between each of the stages (per day R250) as can accommodation and transfers.
