Delvera Hi-Tec Full Moon Hikes
Every month (September-April) the Dirtopia team organises a Full Moon Hike to the top of the Koppie from the Trail Centre.
The public can enjoy a picnic while watching the sunset over Table Mountain with stunning views of the Winelands, while enjoying snacks, even a picnic, on Klapmutskop; and then see the full moon rise.
The marked Vineyard Trail is 9,75km in total and starts from the Trail Centre on Delvera farm and takes you through Greater Simonsberg Conservancy and Yellowwood forest to the top of Klapmutskop. Klapmutskop is part of Simonsberg Conservancy and part of the permit goes towards this non-profit.
It will take you about one hour to the top from the Trail Centre so don’t be there later than stipulated (it changes every month of course), so that you make it in time for the sunset.
Farm vehicles can also transport some people, especially children to the half way mark where the singletrack hiking trail starts at the Pepper Tree – this will shorten the route to under 5km in total and it takes about 30 minutes to the top from the Pepper Tree.
Torches are needed for walking down (also for sale at Trail Centre) and something warm to wear. Times depend on the month and the cost is R70p.p and R30 for children under 10years. Shuttles, permits (private land & Conservancy) & map included.
Please book at the Trail Centre, as there are limited space. As it is a marked route, your group can do their own thing. Wide variety of snacks & cooldrinks for sale at the Trail Centre or book a picnic with us - please see info below. Picnics must be booked & paid at least one-two days in advance. No dogs allowed - it is private land & a conservancy.
We do not recommend any valuables left in your vehicle, although farm patrol is on standby.
