Your attire: old trail shoes (they will get wet), hat (that also covers your neck if you burn easily), water & food ( there is NO access to water or food en route), GoPro (if you have one) , GPS ( if you have one).

We will book accommodation for Friday night and Saturday night in Yzerfontein. We will then shuttle between there and the various start / finish points.

Your lift back on Sunday will need to enter the WC National Park to pick you up. From Cape Town, it is closer to the bottom gate. See the map to Tsaarsbank here: WCNP map
