Twelve Apostles Tours and Activities

star-5
21 Reviews
Twelve Apostles
Twelve Apostles Mountain Range—with its rock buttresses and deep ravines—stretches  majestically south from Cape Town along the rugged Atlantic Coast. You can explore the mountains up close on numerous hiking trails, or you can view the scenic formations from the coastal road that runs between the base of the bluffs and ocean.

The Basics
The Twelve Apostles are a prominent feature in any drive along the Cape Peninsula's Atlantic Coast, and stops to admire the scenic peaks are common on Cape Peninsula tours. You can also bike along the road at the base of the range on a cycling tour, or see the peaks from above on a helicopter tour of the coastline. Alternatively, take to the mountains on a guided hiking tour for a challenging, yet rewarding, excursion.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Twelve Apostles are a favorite among nature-lovers and photographers. 
  • The best views of the Twelve Apostles are from the scenic turnouts along Victoria Road.
  • The range’s hiking trails vary in intensity but are typically steep and rugged.
  • There are numerous beach towns along the base of the mountains where you can stop for lunch or drinks.

How to Get There
To reach via car, beginning at the saddle between Table Mountain and Lion’s Head, drive Victoria Road along the base of the Twelve Apostles Mountain Range. Book a Cape Peninsula tour to let someone else do the driving while you take in the mountains on one side and the beaches on the other. Popular hiking trails can be reached from the summit of Table Mountain or from Camps Bay.

When to Get There
You can take in the Twelve Apostles scenery at any time, but for the best lighting and photo opportunities, visit around sunset. A clear day provides the best views of the peaks, but the rock formations shrouded by clouds are also picturesque. 

Hiking in the Twelve Apostles 
Most hiking trails in the Twelve Apostles require moderate to advanced fitness levels and an equivalent sense of adventure. If you start at the base of the bluffs and head for the peaks, expect to encounter steep rocky terrain, solitude, and worth-the-effort views. For views without the climb, take the cable car to the top of Table Mountain and follow the comparatively easy trails along the top of the Twelve Apostles.
Address: Table Mountain National Park, Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa
