Our expedition started on Friday at van der Stel Station where we waited for the train to take us to Cape Town
After arriving at Cape Town station we had to find the MyCiti bus station and find the correct bus to get us to Kloofnek. Once we had bought our tickets we had to find the correct platform were our bus would pick us up.
After getting off the bus we found the start of the pipe track hiking path and started hiking.
We spotted some proteas along the trail.
It was great to reach the hut and everybody started making supper! At sunset everybody went outside to watch the sunset! As always the sunset was awesome!
Later on the stars came out and we spotted Orion and the moon!

On Saturday we explored a portion of the Back table of Table Mountain that people don’t normally get to in search of a geocache called Defending the cave man.
On Sunday morning we headed down the mountain via Nursery Ravine in the pouring rain and we were soaking wet when we got to the car park!
The weekend was a great adventure!
