Organic Table Mountain Hike

Cape Town, South Africa

Experience hosted by Kyle

3.5 hours, Hosted in English

What you'll do

Join us to climb the secret trails of Table Mountain away from the crowds.
We will take you on some amazing private routes, known only to locals, which are less travelled and more scenic, offering great wildlife spotting opportunities and phenomenal views.
Along the way you will learn about the birds and wildlife found on the mountain and the famous fynbos belt, which makes up nearly 10% of all the entire plant species on earth. South Africa is the only country that can claim to have one of the world's six floral kingdoms completely within its borders in Cape Town.
We stop regularly to soak up the beauty and enjoy freshly brewed organic coffee or tea together with local organic South African snacks and treats, all whilst enjoying superb views of the “Mother City” and the Cape Peninsula.
You can choose to come down using the cable car or (and depending on time and weather), you can also hike down to complete your experience!
Other things to note
Bring along 1-2 liters of Water, warm Jacket (preferably a lite wind braker or quick dry), Sunhat & sunscreen.
Depending on route we will arrange a meeting point from where we will start or end.

Where you'll be

We will ascend one of less travelled “secret” routes up the mountain, depending on the weather, the group and what kind of hike you would like to do. I promise you a magical experience filled with breath-taking scenery, beautiful flora & fauna and possibly even some infamous wildlife, like the rare Himalayan Mountain Tahr or wild Caracal.

Highly recommended! Kyle is a great guide and helped me and the other guests feel comfortable, shared a lot of interesting stories about the places we passed through, and the hike itself was surprisingly challenging (in a good way, as I see it!)

Highly suggest this activity if you have any interest in hiking at all and want to know a bit more about the actual mountain and local flora and fauna. We had Kathy as our guide while Kyle was out of town and she was terrific, was very encouraging on the few spots that were trickier to manage and had tons of knowledge about Cape Town, table mountain and everything in between. hot coffee and snacks at the top was the perfect way to end a challenging but immensely rewarding hike. Highly recommend !!!! And obviously incredible views. Don’t miss this one.

This must be the only way anyone should go up Table Mountain, the views of Capetown shoreline marinating as you take on this adventure is just shy of healing experience. Kyle is great at communicating, finding out exactly what you want and delivering. If you have time and loving hiking and in Capetown then definitely get in touch with Kyle, he is your remedy. No need to thank me, Enjoy 😊

A beautiful trek to the reservoirs at the top of table mountain. What a view! A wonderful experience it was as we felt safe and cared for. Loved the chat and friendliness of our guide. The organic coffee and almond rusks at the reservoir was just what we needed after the climb. We were lucky enough to meet a baboon family on our way and see a number of lovely flowers and vegetation. Would highly recommend our guide Dino and the trek as a must do in Cape Town as it gives you such a view of the city and its surroundings plus an insight into the many nature walks accessible from Cape Town.
