About Us

Hi, welcome to Cape Camino!

Gabrielle Andrew and Peggy Coetzee-Andrew, a mother and daughter team.

In 2011 they walked Camino de Santiago together. Many lessons were learned during their time in Northern Spain and both were deeply inspired by the experience. When they arrived back in Cape Town it was only a few months until Gabrielle decided to bring the concept to Cape Town.

She has worked on the project for over 4 years, by herself, and then Peggy left her job in Mozambique to join her in 2015 for the official launch in April.

They are both fun-loving, inspired people, who bring energy into a room and see the Cape Camino as a nation building asset, contributing to positive change in South Africa.

Guides and Guardian Escorts

These are individuals who will assist you along your journey. These wonderful guides assist pilgrims with navigation, safety and interesting historical facts and stories along the route. They are recommended for navigation and also for the more nervous walker. Guides are experts on history, landscape and local plants.

Guardian escorts are for safety and security, they are residents in Cape Town, and not necessarily qualified mountain guides. They’ll walk with you through recommended areas. All guardian guides can be contacted through us. 

To book a guide on one of the Cape Camino route legs, kindly contact us.
