The Grille Shack @ PitStop Lodge, a multilayer destination on Clarence Drive serving 1950’s Pump Diner moods and food with “local is lekker” beverages, is proud to announce that they are selling Crystal Pool Hike hiking permits on Quicket, a convenient, secure and modern online ticket sales platform.

The Crystal Pools hiking trail near Gordon’s Bay is just an hour outside of Cape Town, and worth every second driving along beautiful Clarence Drive, voted the most scenic coastal drive in the world. Nature lovers will go insane over the stunning fynbos, plant species, waterfall, natural pools, and diverse animals that call the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve and Crystal Pools trail home. Now, local and foreign adventurers, can book and secure hiking permits online from anywhere at any time.

Using Quicket as a customer-friendly option to book hiking permits is Jaco Oosthuizen’s—the company’s IT manager and resident tech magician—brainchild. On the ticket and pricing options available, Jaco said, “We offer a dynamic pricing strategy with real time tickets sales where popular tickets for peak days cost more than tickets for off-peak days. Currently, there is an early bird special on the premium days for R119. After these tickets are sold, the price will become R139, and off-peak weekdays are sold for R99. Once customers have paid through Quicket’s secure and certified payment gateway, they will be issued with a ticket containing their hiking permit and unique QR code.”

Hikers simply need to bring this dated permit with their unique QR code and an official identification document to enter this protected area. Paper and digital copies will be accepted. Tickets are limited, therefore, adventurers and thrill-seekers are encourage to book tickets as soon as possible. Hikers don’t want to miss out of this trail during summer—the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve is simply breathtaking!

The event offering is another puzzle piece that fits into The Grille Shack @ PitStop Lodge, a destination designed for petrolheads, road-trippers, families, adventurers, hikers, locals, free spirits, cyclists, tourists and well-behaved pets. If jumping into a pool of mountain water wasn’t refreshing enough, cool down with an ice-cold PitStop Lager. Hikers are also sure to work up an appetite after some memorable swimming and kloofing, and the restaurant’s famous “Bel Die Polisie” Pan or signature Grille Shack Burger will satisfy the hungriest diners.
