Elephants Eye Cave Hike – Silvermine Reserve

On such a FABULOUS day as today, one should take advantage and be OUT in nature. So yes, finally, I went for a hike again. After all family and friends visiting I now have some time again to go hopefully on some more hikes.
I had never been up to Elephants Eye so it was exciting to add this one to the list. Although there was a rescue helicopter, rescueing someone off the mountain, I thought it was a fairly easy hike up. Well signposted, many people around, not too streneous. And the VIEWS! WoW!! False Bay looked stunning, the sea not a single little wave, nature was quiet (quite rare for the Cape with winds and storms all most all the time). It was just perfect. And, what a bonus to see the king proteas bloom. Beautiful! It was the first time that I saw them in the wild so I was very excited about that. The cave is huge and you can walk into it. See pics for views. We were in AWE! Bit slippery becasue of the sand, yes, I also landed on my bum!
You park the car near the dam in the Silvemine reserve. With a wild card you can take your dog as well.
