Skeleton Gorge Private Tour


Skeleton Gorge, located directly above Kirstenbosch Botanical gardens is a beautiful hike. 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. We will hike at a comfortable pace to ensure we enjoy the hike.
