Kloofing

Crystal Pools Hike

from R750 per adventurer

Crystal Pools is situated just outside Gordonsbay in the fynbos-laden mountains of the Kogelberg Biosphere, one of the riches areas of fynbos in the Western Cape and home to one of the world’s six Floral Kingdoms. The guided hike follows the Palmiet River up the rocky Steenbras River Gorge with a series of deep, natural rock pools. These pools are fed by waterfalls whose origin lies in the Hottentots Holland Mountains. Hiking, kloofing, scrambling, jumping and swimming in the freshwater crystal pools makes this our most popular exhilarating adventure induced hike.
