Suicide Gorge (near Grabouw)

Recommended only for hardy and experienced hikers, the Suicide Gorge trail takes you high up into the mountains… and then downhill through the gorge that gives it its name.

You’ll be getting wet on this journey, so bring the appropriate gear, including lightweight hiking shoes, a swimsuit, and a change of clothes – a wetsuit is also highly recommended. Much of the day involves slip-sliding your way along the river, jumping into pools, and sometimes leaping off cliffs into the pools.

Pets are not allowed in CapeNature reserves.

We recommend going to with someone who has been there before.
