Hiking on Table Mountain – Cape Town

This tour is only run by arrangement and requires a minimum of four people, charged at R600 per person. This includes transport, an experienced guide and a packed lunch. We can take fewer numbers, but the price per person will be adjusted accordingly.

First seen by a European in 1488 and first climbed by a European in 1503. Now it is your turn! Cape Town’s Table Mountain is probably the most well-known icon in South Africa, after, of course, former President Nelson Mandela.

If you only get to do ONE thing in Cape Town, a hike up our favourite hunk of sandstone it should be! Our hike will certainly increase your heart rate and the panoramic views of the Mother City will leave you breathless!

Various options exist, depending on the fitness and inclination of the group. The easiest option is Platteklip Gorge – a moderate 2 to 3-hour hike OR for the fitter, more experienced hikers with a head for heights, we can tackle Kasteespoort or India Venster.  All return down Platteklip – approximately 1-hour hike (or via cable car 3 mins, but you will have to buy a ticket).

NOTE: We can also arrange a host of other longer hikes if you are looking to do e.g. Skeleton Gorge. Or maybe you are looking for a really exciting, lesser known hike. Our qualified adventure guides have a wealth of knowledge and will be happy to introduce you to the “secrets” of the Mountain. ENQUIRE NOW for a quote.
