Hillcrest to Table Mountain

Hillcrest to Table Mountain
The views from the dusty Hillcrest's (map) hiking trails are spectacular - much more so than what I've shown in this photo.

If you're keen to amble though the vineyards, along one of the trails, arrive by 8am, take an exploratory walk through the vineyards, and end off the outing by visiting the estate's restaurant for breakfast. Be sure to take plenty of sunscreen and water along - it's surprisingly easy for a quick walk to turn into a two-hour trek.

The quarry at Hillcrest in Durbanville

The quarry at Hillcrest
It was confusing to me at first, but there are in fact two Hillcrest estates in the Cape Town area... Hillcrest, the berry farm, and Hillcrest, the producer of fine Cape wines. The former is located just outside of Stellenbosch and the latter on the outskirts of Durbanville.

This photo is of a small secluded function venue at Hillcrest that's often used for corporate events, weddings, and other parties.
