What you'll do

Hidden Gems on Table Mountain We will explore some hidden gems off the beaten track on Table Mountain, while at the same time enjoying spectacular views and the wonderful birds, flora and occasional fauna on Table Mountain. While on route I will also chat to you about Cape Town and South Africa, and whats its like to see a country transformed from a dark past to one of the most desirable tourist and living destinations in the world. Adventure hikes Tranquility Cracks A hidden labyrinth of caves & trees hidden on top of the back table of Table mountain. Valken Labyrinth Another maze of rocks & hidden cracks on top of the mountain, not visited by many. Carrels Ledge For those with a head for head for heights, this hidden ledge drops 300m, but what a rush for those that dare. Boomslang Cave Walk and crawl through an amazing cave in the Kalk Bay mountains. Enter one side, see the bats and amazing cavern inside and crawl out the other. Loads more adventures to experience including waterfalls (in winter), the famous diving board and some very cool scrambling routes for those who don't mind clambering up rocks - no experience or ropes required.

Barry

With more than 20 years experience guiding on Table Mountain, I have explored many of its caves, labyrinths and spectacular ledges that not many get to see. If you want to experience some of these hidden gems off the beaten track with an experienced guide then you've come to the right place. I like nothing more than finding new routes and showing off our mountains to tourists from around the world. As well as I know the mountain there's always something new to discover. Come enjoy an adventure and experience what very few locals have, hidden gems on this magnificent mountain.

What's included

Where you'll be

Platteklip Gorge, one of the original routes up Table Mountain. India Venster, if we take that route we will visit the famous window (Venster in Afrikaans) that gives the route part of its name. The other part is that the route looks like the map of India when seen from certain angles. The diving broad, also route dependent, everyone's favorite photo op. The upper cable car station and restaurant with its stunning views.
