Arangieskop is a 2-day hike in the Dassieshoek Nature Reserve, outside Robertson, in the Western Cape. It is often referred to as the “Kilimanjaro of the Cape”, not because of its height, but due to the relentless uphill of the first day and downhill of the second. However, that should not deter any reasonably fit hiker from hiking Arangieskop, as the overnight hut is one of the best in the country and will make you forget all about your tired legs.
Difficulty (fitness): 7-8/10 (The distances per day aren’t massive, but the continuous, steep ascent and descent requires strong legs)
Technical rating of trail: Standard trail walking with steep ascents and descents over rocky terrain. Sections of the trail are very exposed or badly eroded, which require balance and sure-footedness.
Duration: 21km, 2 days
The club uses a grading system (given in brackets after the hike name) to make it easier for club members to communicate the difficultly of an outing. You can check out our Meets Grading page for details on how to use the grading system, or alternatively you can contact the meet leader directly if you are unsure of the difficulty of a meet.
