In most parts of the civilized world these happy days, the nearer you are to a city the greater the possibility to be accosted. Clarens is no exception.
THE SCILLA WALK
Halfway up the mountain slopes, you’ll notice several large boulders which broke off from above. Don’t worry, no falling rocks warning this! Anyway, the rock is the world-renowned Clarens Formation Sandstone. As a result of its porous structure, it successfully retains water.
