HIKE WITH WILLEMIEN | THE TWO OCEANS TRAIL

All about the Two Oceans Trail

The Two Oceans Hike is an annual event held in Cape Town, South Africa that attracts thousands of hikers from around the world. That said, you can do the hike with Willemian and enjoy the beauty of the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve without the crowd.

The hike is a challenging but rewarding experience that offers hikers the opportunity to explore the beautiful Cape Peninsula and witness the stunning scenery of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans.

The official annual event is organized by the Two Oceans Marathon Organization and takes place on the last weekend of September. It is divided into two different routes, the 56 km Ultra Marathon and the 21 km Half Marathon. The Ultra Marathon is considered one of the most challenging hikes in the world and is only open to experienced hikers. The Half Marathon, on the other hand, is open to hikers of all levels and is a great option for those who want to experience the beauty of the Cape Peninsula without the added challenge of the Ultra Marathon.

The Two Oceans Hike starts and finishes at the University of Cape Town, and takes hikers through some of the most beautiful and diverse landscapes in the Western Cape. The route includes steep climbs and descents, rocky terrain, and narrow paths, making it a challenging hike for even the most experienced hikers. The hike also takes hikers through the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, where they will have the opportunity to see a variety of wildlife, including baboons, dassies, and over 250 species of birds.
