Official L2L Walk
The main aim of the L2L Charity Walk is to raise funds for our beneficiaries. We are aiming to raise R1 million for 2021. This will allow us to support at least 3 different beneficiaries. The main beneficiary receives the monies raised for the Official Walk. The secondary and other beneficiaries receive varying amounts depending on which Practice Walks are earmarked for their benefit.
Only 120 ladies can walk the L2L each year. It is a life changing experience that should be on your bucket list.
Our Walker’s Guide has been transferred to our mobile app. In this way you are able to access all the walk related information easily through your phone.

PREPARING FOR THE WALK
In order to participate, you will need to register for the walk. This is an online process.
Carefully read through the post on the information you need to have handy when you register.
A non-refundable registration fee of R2500 is payable to confirm your registration on the walk.
The 4-day 100km hike can only be completed within the limited time if you are fit.
The terrain varies, but is mostly on hard and sandy beaches.
Participating in the Practice Walks is an option – it gives you an idea of the pace we walk as well as the different types of terrain and distances we will be walking.
If you are travelling from out of town it is important that you make your arrangements to keep the following in mind:
1. You need to register on Wednesday before we start walking on Thursday.
2. We leave Hermanus on a bus at 5:15am on Thursday and drive to Agulhas – our starting point.
3. It takes a minimum of 2 hours to travel from Cape Town International Airport to Hermanus.
What to pack
There is limited space for your luggage. Remember we travel from Hermanus to our accomodation at Die Dam by bus.
Your luggage is made up of (a) 1x tog bag for 4 days’ clothing, snacks, toiletries, first aid kit, etc (b) 1x sleeping bag and pillow (c) day pack with your daily supplies, etc.
We eat very well. So, if you have special requirements make sure that you indicate this when you register.
The catering is generous and our sponsors usually make sure we have lots of snacks for each day. Be it as it may, you might still want to bring your own treats and snacks and even a bottle or 2 of wine.
Its a tough walk, but we have lots of fun at night.
We have been fortunate to secure accomodation at Die Dam. We use the holiday homes for the 3 nights of the walk.
Most of the beds are double and you will therefore need to share.
The alternative is to bring your own tent and camp. Die Dam has comfortable ablution blocks and electricity for those that want to blow dry their hair… or any other acitivty.
Make sure you have the app saved on your phone’s home screen.
