Where you'll be

The Lady's Slipper mountain is a beautiful, rocky mountain, covered in indigenous Fynbos (translated as 'fine bush'). It takes about 1 hour to ascend at a gentle pace, and about 50 minutes to descend. The views from the top are spectacular. Steep uphill, steep downhill, some big 'step-ups' and 'step-downs' over rocks.
