Hell’s Gate Waterfall – Orange Kloof (Intermediate)

(8 customer reviews)


In the section behind the iconic Table Mountain over looking Hout Bay you’ll find an area known as Orange Kloof. It’s quite untouched and well kept. The Afromante forest is home to the very famous hike hidden in one of the gorges. The location is known as Hells Gates.


Hells Gates is beautiful beyond description and on the bucket list of many local hikers. It’s waterfall location is one of, if not the most unique and mesmerizing Rock formations in Table Mountain National Park. It’s a series of rock pools and waterfalls that cannot be found anywhere else in Cape Town thus giving it the title for Cape Towns best adventure, it’s hard to believe that this location is found right in the middle of a city. You’ll be so close to civilization but feel like you’re hundreds of kilometers away.


When reaching the top we’ll be met by the 5 reservoirs before making our way down making this a circular route.

    What an amazing experience with Trailfitsa. Jodi made it memorable with hot coffee & snacks.
    Pictures doesn’t do this one justice….one must do it live to capture the true essence.

    Awesome hike! After all the rain the waterfalls were flowing beautifully. Jody our guide did a great job advising where to step and knew the route very well. With a small group we kept a good pace and thoroughly enjoyed it! Looking forward too many more hikes.

    This hike was absolutely gorgeous, with a little bit of everything. Incline, single-track trails, wider maintained trails, bushwacking, climbing (literally) falls. I am visiting from Canada and so beyond happy I took a half day for this tour, it seems to be a hidden gem even among locals. Thank-you so much Jody, he helped me many times with foot placing, and made me feel safe the full way!
