Table Mountain Hike with local guideDay Trips

Table Mountain Hike with local guide

star-5
Hike up Table Mountain, one of the 7 New Natural Wonders of the World, with a highly experienced local guide, who can tell you everything about the abundant flora and fauna of the area! The beauty of this spectacular rock formation can be admired from multiple angles in Cape Town but hiking Table Mountain is the best way to get the ultimate mountain experience and admire the breathtaking views once you stand on top. Platteklip Gorge is the most straight forward direct ascent and the first route used by early explorers to reach the summit. This trail is the easiest but still gains around 700 meters over a distance of 3 km, so its quite steep. The path goes through a deep ravine on the iconic front face of the mountain and features stunning surroundings all the way to the top. The routes takes between 1H30 to 3H to complete depending on one's fitness level. Hikers are advised to stop regularly along the way to marvel at the spectacular views.

One of the most spectacular hikes up Table Mountain, aiming to depart around sunrise, seeing the sun flood into the city from behind the mountain is breathtaking Whilst seeming impossible, the route becomes adventurous, not too challenging and achievable.

Please be prepared for changing temperatures, a light weight waterproof jacket, fleece and base layer may all be required. A head torch is useful but not necessary You will be exposed to heights, and wide open expanses, this is not a hike for those with a fear of these Your guide will fill you in with details of the flora and surrounding history. The Descent down Platteklip gorge is rarely taken up, most guests opting for the Cable car, however if the Cable car is not running then the default is to hike down, please be prepared to hike down.

⭐ Lion's Head Sunrise/Sunset HikeHiking

⭐ Lion's Head Sunrise/Sunset Hike

star-5
We will be hiking up Lions Head, Cape Town's most Instragram'able hike. We plan to either catch the sunset over the Atlantic Ocean or sunrise from the Hottentots Holland mountains. We enjoy some amazing photo opportunities before our descent. During a sunset hike, we descend in the dark using our flashlights (provided). During a sunrise hike, we may hike the first part in the dark using our flashlights (provided). While the hike is regarded as easier than Table Mountain, it still involves steep rocky and narrow terrain at certain points from about half up way and a section where the use of steel handles and chains need to be used to get up 2 pitches of about 3 meters each (only up and not down). Quite adventurous indeed. This hike has been an age old tradition for locals especially during the full moon and on clear/windless nights/mornings where the lights of the city below dazzle and the moon and stars show off its beauty in the night sky.
