Skeleton Gorge Tour


Skeleton Gorge, situated directly above Kirstenbosch Botanical gardens is a hike that offers a bit of everything. From extreme adventure to superb views.


We’ll do a circular route that starts out hiking through the forest along a contour path, followed by a pit stop at Skeleton Gorge Waterfall before ascending the trail to the top.


Expect to be surrounded by trees, mossy rocks and the sound of the stream alongside for most of the way up. When reaching the top we will stop at the Hely Hutchinson Reservoir which opens up to a “beach-like” appearance and is quite peaceful.

Difficulty level: Intermediate – Involves hiking for around 8km in distance including steep sections and using our hands to assist here and there (scrambling). There are also some exposed sections so being relatively comfortable with heights is recommended.
