Green Point to Rhodes Memorial / Rhodes Memorial to Green Point
Guardian escort recommended for entire route.
Beach front and into the city. Walk along the coast and then onto the Sea Point promenade. Head round past the famous V&A Waterfront and then into the city. We suggest heading up Bree street to the top of Kloof Nek and onto the next leg. Bree street is filled with small, unique, upcoming businesses.Keep walking along the contour path towards the University of Cape Town or do yourself a favour and go and explore the rich history of the Bokaap, the city center and district 6. There are abundant tours, cooking classes, historical sites, accommodation, food……. and enough to keep you busy for weeks. But if you are sticking to the route follow the contour path south until you come to UCT or Rhodes memorial. The terrain is a forest path above the city.
- Please purchase a Cape Camino Passport to receive your Slingsby Map, which is best for navigation of this leg.
