Not sure where to start? It doesn’t matter! The route is circular so anywhere is perfect.
We often start in the city of Cape Town at the Lower Cableway station on the Colours & Culture Leg, ending at Rhodes Memorial.
Connect with other pilgrims on our Facebook Forum Page. Post about when you’re walking and invite others to join.

Some favourite times of year are:
- March, April, May, August,
- September, October, November, but it really is up to you!
While much of the route is in public spaces, for the more remote legs of the route we suggest walking with pilgrims who know the terrain and who are experienced in mountain walks.
Guides are available for hire should the need arise for more personal support and protection.
It is always a good idea to be sensible with regard to walking times and walking with a companion when feeling uncomfortable or vulnerable. A whistle and pepper spray could also be two of the items to remember to pack and have at hand.
