Cape St Francis Resort, Da Gama Rd, Cape St Francis.

Eric and Esti Stewart made St Francis Bay their home in 1996, and immediately started to explore the entire area – from hiking, cycling, paddling, and swimming to horse riding and traditional bow shooting.   The family’s interests soon lead to a few annual organized events and active holiday offerings.

St Francis Summer Series

Every year between 18 and 31 December the annual St Francis Summer Series takes place in the greater St Francis Area.  Every morning at 8h runners, swimmers, paddlers and cyclists can participate in a single or multi-discipline event.  The full program and more details are available on

The Chokka Trail

The Chokka Trail is an award-winning 62km hike over 4 days and 3 nights.  The route is as diverse as the accommodation and meals at Oyster Kaya, Dune Ridge Country House and the Cape St Francis Resort.  Highlights of the hike include a Canal Cruise with Resort Adventures and a Calamari Tasting at Clive’s Chokka Block, Port St Francis.   More info on

The annual Chokka Trail Run (62km, 42km, 23km and 10km) takes place over the Women’s Day Weekend in August.  More info on

Baviaans Camino

The majestic Baviaanskloof Reserve lies a mere hour’s drive north of St Francis.  The 95km Baviaans Camino traverses the Baviaanskloof Mountain as well as the Kouga Mountain Range over 4 days and 5 nights.  Always guided, fully supported and includes all meals, accommodation and luggage transfers.  Difficult but doable!

Baviaans Cycle Tour

Cycling from farm to farm, where the next meal is supplied by the local farmer, is what you will get on the Baviaans Cycle Tour in the Steytlerville District.  This 5 day cycle tour explores the northern foot of the Baviaanskloof Mountain.

Pink Hill Karoo Cycling Holiday

With a farmhouse built in 1860 as base, this 3 day/4 night cycling holiday is exactly what it says – get up, enjoy breakfast, cycle for 3 – 5 hours, enjoy lunch, rest and recover and meet your fellow cyclists at the camp fire for dinner.
