About Sirkelsvlei Walk
Experience the essence of Cape Point on this wild, windswept route through beautiful fynbos.
Park at Olifantsbos, then head for the boom where a sign indicates the beginning of the circular trail. The trail starts with a short steep section before the route splits. It can be walked in either direction. Red Hartebeest are often seen on the reed flats.
Bird lovers will enjoy frequent sightings of sunbirds – Orange-breasted Sunbirds and Malachite Sunbirds. On reaching Sirkelsvlei, look out for terrapins sunning themselves on exposed rocks.
Alternative: Park your car in a parking bay on the right-hand side of the road just inside the entrance to the Cape Point Nature Reserve. You may want to leave a second car at Olifantsbos to save you walking back.
Duration: 3 hours return
