Boomslang Cave, Kalk bay

Boom Slang Cave Hike
Crawling through the Boomslang cave.

One of the best short hikes I have had to date. A hike from Boyes Drive above the Kalk Bay harbour entrance. The route took us through Echo Valley on the winding board-walk path, through the Yellow & Milk Woods and up to Cave Peak, from were we had views of Kalk Bay and towards Simon’s Town.

From there we crawled through the Boomslang Cave. You can go through this cave from either end. If you don’t like dark places or crawling in sand on your tummy, then this is not for you. We took a candle and matches with and did a short meditation in the larger section of the caves.  The path is marked with arrows to make it easier to find your way from one side of the mountain to the other. DO NOT wander off on your own… you can get lost in that maze of tunnels.

A fun hike I have now done a few time already. 🙂
