Silvermine Tented Camp is situated within the Silvermine section of the Table Mountain National Park (TMNP), off Ou Kaapse Weg. The Silvermine tented camp is in the upland mountain wetlands near the Silvermine Dam.
The beautiful, rustic camp is built from timber felled and milled in the TMNP.
Silvermine Camp provides hot water, open fires, and a fully equipped kitchen for self catering clients.
The camp links up as accommodation on route on the Hoerikwaggo Trail - a 5 day and 4 night hike from Cape Town to Cape Point or vice versa. However, if you wish to simply experience spending a night at this tented camp, book the accommodation and use it as a base from where you can enjoy all the outdoor activities.
