Robertson to Cape Agulhas

Start your pilgrimage from any starting point

The route starts at the Dutch Reformed Mother Church in Robertson and meanders through vineyards and orchards to McGregor. Then you walk mostly uphill on pleasant roads through farms to Die Galg and then a rather steep downhill route to Greyton.

From Greyton you walk to the Genadendal intersection where the route joins the Stellenbosch route. You then enter the rolling hills of the Overberg, past the popular farm stall Dassiesfontein and eventually across the Babilonstoring mountains to Volmoed in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. From here you walk to Hermanus, Gansbaai and the interesting hamlet Baardskeerdersbos.

The route stretches through the Sandberg Fynbos Reserve to Elim, and then to the farm Springfield Estate in the Agulhas National Park. The final stretch is along the coast from Brandfontein to the southernmost point and lighthouse at Cape Agulhas.

Overall Tour Information

Please take note of the following arrangement for all bookings on the routes from both Robertson and Stellenbosch to Cape Agulhas: Bookings for the Pilgrimage of Hope on these routes will from now on be handled only by the agency Pilgrim Assist. Pilgrim Assist has worked with the Pilgrimage of Hope in an official capacity since 2020 and has already supported hundreds of pilgrims on the routes. We, therefore, request that going forward, no guesthouses take bookings from individual pilgrims or groups. Please make use of our booking inquiry form for assistance.
