Table Mountain Hike

Cape Town

Activity Description

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 favorite 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!
We ascend up Platteklip Gorge, a moderate 2 to 3 hour hike and back down the same route – approximately 1 hour or via cable car ( 3 mins, but you will have to buy a ticket!)

Customer Reviews

This was such a great experience and one of my favourite parts of the trip to Cape Town. Our guides were informative and also excellent company which made getting up the mountain that much more enjoyable. We felt it was worth booking! - Sonja

We had an excellent day. We were picked up in the centre of Cape Town and straight away Joel was welcoming and enthusiastic about the day's hike. Joel was very knowledgeable and interesting, explaining some of the recent history of South Africa as well as highlighting views and identifying plants and birds that we could see. As a small group of just 4 people, he adapted the walk to allow us to go to McClears Beacon and then come down by cable car. The packed lunch was substantial and we had plenty to drink on a hot day. All in all it was a very enjoyable day and I would highly recommend this guided walk through Daytrippers. - Liz
