Give the people a short description of your MicroAdventure.
If you're into overnight hiking with only the bare minimum in your pack and the rest strapped to it, be sure to give this a go. Start the Duiwelsgat Hike for a half day trek through scenic Cederberg landscapes while overwhelmed with the abundance of flora and fauna surrounding you. Along the route there is a basic rock hut where shelter can be found for the night.

Day two, hike up Sneeuberg mountain for a challenge and marvel at the view from the top. head back to base camp for the second night stay, make a feast with the remaining supplies and have a good rest. The next day, leave early for a long hike back to civilization. Leave the hut in a clean state as it was found and the hut works on a first-come-first-serve basis and could be shared with other hikers from the route.
