Robberg Peninsula - Guided Hike

Plettenberg Bay

Activity Description

Robberg Peninsula – Guided Hike
This is a scenic coastal trail on a unique feature of the Cape Coast. Robberg is a peninsula with a variety of natural environments from coastal fynbos, staggering coastal cliffs, beaches and caves including Nelsons Cave which bears evidence of thousands of years of human and animal habitation.

While humans have come & gone hundreds of animals and birds still reside on the peninsula. Amongst the more numerous are the seals frolicking in the waves that gave Robberg (Seal Hill) it’s name. There are also over 100 species of birds, small antelope and of the elusive Cape Clawless Otter. Dolphins and sharks are often spotted in the ocean from the vantage of the sea cliffs.

GoVertical will guide you on a full day hike of the reserve, where you’ll discover many fascinating archaeological and geological features on the peninsula. The views from Robberg are spectacular, to the North East is Plettenberg Bay stretching for kilometres below the Tsitsikamma Mountains and to the South the coastal scenery unfolds towards Knysna. The diversity of environment and splendid vistas makes this trail one of the most varied and memorable on the Cape Coast.
