WALK THE BAY

Walk the bay adventure

From R6900

Known as the best place to spot the Southern Right whales between July and November, Walker Bay boasts much more than being the world-famous home to our beloved whales.

The Walker Bay Reserve lies on the south-western Cape coast, just east of Hermanus. Home to lowland coastal fynbos, also known as ‘strandveld’, Walker Bay is rich in both flora and fauna that is unique to this part of the Cape Floral Kingdom.

The Klein River Lagoon, also referred to as “Kleinriversvlei”, is 10km long and 2km wide. The lagoon marks the end of the Klein River’s 80km journey that we explore on our Hermanus Camino, so we felt it only fitting to adventure through this area surrounding the lagoon on Walk The Bay.

Join us as we Walk The Bay together with the sand between our toes and the fresh ocean breeze at our heels as we adventure through the history and hidden gems of this iconic part of South Africa.

Price/person Sharing – 30% single supplement applies.
50% deposit required to confirm booking. 

Walk the way with us on The Hermanus Camino. An “all-inclusive”  73km “Slackpacking” walk that takes place over 6 days (5 walking) and 5 nights in the Overberg region of the Western Cape, South Africa.

The Camino will be run on the following basis:

  • The price is per person sharing, either find a friend to join you or pay the single supplement. A 30% single supplement applies if someone wants their own room or if a booking results in someone having their own room (eg: if booking for 3 people).
  • The maximum number of guests is 12 – if you want your own exclusive group, then you need to book and pay for 12 people.
  • We reserve the right to cancel a Camino if less than 8 people have booked – payment will be fully refundable or transferable.

There are 3 Hermanus Camino’s every week of the year, except for our 6-week holiday periods over the July and December School Holidays. The 1st Camino runs from a Sunday to a Friday, the 2nd from a Monday to a Saturday and the 3rd from a Tuesday to a Sunday. All 3 Camino’s are exactly the same.

You can view availability via our booking platform. Click on the orange “Book Now” button to be directed to our calendar where you will see which weeks are available. The green blocks indicate the start date of your Camino and if it is green that means there is space available for that particular Hermanus Camino. 

The Hermanus Camino is to be enjoyed at your own pace. Please stop, pause, breathe, take photos and soak up the view. It is suitable for most fitness levels. There are some steeper zigzag sections that require you to be walking fit.

This is your journey. Take your time.
