It was a fun experience, although there are many steep parts, plus there are no gates or carved trails. The are occasional slippery spots, so were Some shoes with grip, also were a lot of sunblock. If you want to swim in the dam then be careful because there are many rocks. All in all it is a nice trip.

Ohw what a hike with spectacular views, the elephant’s eye was cherry on top. It would be nice though to have bigger visible route path for first time hikers in this reserve, we got lost with my friends but eventually got to the tar road that takes one to elephants eye

We loved the walk to the waterfall, it was a great walk, such beautiful nature filled walk. It is well signed, clean and divine! The parking was easy and we felt safe as there were many people maintaining social distancing and loved to see lots of dogs! I would say 8 out 10 dog walkers were responsible by picking up their dog poop! The waterfall was very full, absolute treat! Thank you! We will be back!

We are a family group that hike every second week on one of the many trails that Cape Town has to offer. This week’s hike took us from Silvermine Dam to Elephant Eye Cave. The trail is a round trip of about 6km and took just under 2 hours to complete. A person needs to be moderately fit, even though it is an already climb. The route is well mapped. It is best to hike this one in a group as there were past security and safety incidents. Some of the routes are shared by Mountain bikers and hikers. The views are magnificent. The cave has seating where you can enjoy snacks and relax. The routes offers lots of photo opportunities throughout the trails. At the start of the trail , you will walk past the Silvermine dam which is training ground for budding athletes and triathletes. The Silvermine area is easy to find as it is part of the Table Mountain National Park and easy to find. It is best to park inside the park. You can expect to pay R35 per person for a day visit/ permit
