Cape Town - School may have just started as has university or your brand new job but that does not mean your holiday travels are over.
As long as the sun is shining and the trees are blowing in the wind and the mountains are still in place - there are more than enough reasons to get out in nature and find your ultimate escape.
Take your pick of amazing adventures here...
1. Kloofing at Suicide Gorge and Riviersonderend
You need to be relatively fit to be able to handle the kloofing challenge at Hottentots Holland Nature Reserve.
If you can handle heights this may be the best thing ever. CapeNature says to always go with an experienced kloofer and to follow all the sign boards along the route.
If you love water activities, try the 7km trail up the river rapids on the Whiskey Creek and spend the night at rustic log cabins in the heart of the Garden Route.
Test your limits and rock climbing skills in the Rocklands section of the Cederberg. Be sure to pick up your permits beforehand, says CapeNature.
Located in the heart of the Karoo, Gamkaberg offers numerous 4x4 trails through areas of renosterveld, fynbos and challenging hills and cliffs.
For a real off the beaten track experience, keep it simple at the Ou Kraal huts while exploring all the trails.
If you love the sea, open spaces, animal watching and walking - then the coastal Whale of Trail is for you. Starting at De Hoop nature reserve, just outside of Swellendam, the route is 53km and takes up to five days to complete.
The trail requires fitness and perseverance but the views and experience are absolutely worth it.
