There's no better place to be on a scorching hot day then a cool kloof whose pools and waterfalls and gnarled old trees draw you on and on until towering cliffs finally tell you that you have gone far enough. With the idea that it could be a slightly more adventurous day for clients who want to venture a little beyond Table Mountain, we went to explore a tributory to the Elandspad river in Dutoitskloof. Apart from a slightly exposed scramble at the start, which could be roped for extra safety, the hike is not too strenuous and a great option for a hot summers day where other routes may be uncomfortable or even dangerous.
