This post is part of The Art of Living series from Bacon and the Art of Living. Chapter 99, where this is posted, is an addendum to the book. In the “Art of Living section, I write about family and the many great experiences we had as part of “the art of living.” Most of these experiences make it into the main body of the work.
The Suikerbossie hike is our most favourite hike in Cape Town.
It begins at the Ruiterplaats estate past Llandudno, just before Houte Bay.
The hike takes one across the Twelve Apostles to the top of Platteklip Gorge.
It can take between 4 and 6 hours to complete. First time hikers are advised to go with someone who knows the route well.
