Full description
After meeting your guide at the bottom of the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway, your scenic hike carves a route up to the summit of Table Mountain. Scrambling up the steep slopes, you’ll use your hands to ascend steep rock steps between numerous photo opportunities and picnic spots along the way.

As you ascend the mountain at a slow-and-steady pace, gaze out over the unparalleled views of Cape Town and the surrounding hills that spill towards the sea. After a 4-hour climb to the top, you’ll have the opportunity to relax and marvel at the panoramic views. Finally, you'll hike back down to the meeting point via Platteklip Gorge, or via a number of other routes that can be discussed with your guide based on the group's experience and ability.

Absolutely fantastic trip with Lance. In some cases challenging, but in the end really good to be on the top of Table Mountain without using the cable car. A great experience and also great to see other other hikers. Going back by cable car and seeing the way we took uphill was quite cool.

The hiking tour was incredible! Lance, who guided the tour, was well experienced in mountain hiking and this made me to feel reassured throughout. Breathtaking views, beautiful nature, and good photo spots. Additionally, I was able to learn some super interesting facts about South Africa and so much more. I would highly recommend to anyone seeking a fulfilling experience. Thanks again :)!
