What we’ll do

The experience starts at the bottom of Platteklip Gorge 1,5 km from the lower cable station. The hike up is straight forward and zigzags 704 meters up Platteklip Gorge to the top of Table Mountain. We then hike across to the Top Cable station and take the cable car down. If conditions don't allow the cable car to operate we will walk back down Platteklip Gorge. There is a stunning restaurant at…

What else you should know

NOTE: It does not have to be 08:00. We can adjust. Platteklip Gorge is 704 m high so a good level of fitness is essential - especially if we are forced to hike down (weather). Allow 3h up & 2h down. VERY NB: If you would like to do this hike message me & I'll open a time slot for this on my calendar

Where you'll be

Table Mountain is one of the "Seven Natural Wonders of the World". It is the mountain that we all love. It is the Symbol of Cape Town. Everyone who is physically able to should hike up Table Mountain at least once if they visit Cape Town. If you are unfamiliar with the mountain it is easy to get into difficulties so a guide is a good idea. The Fynbos and animals on Table Mountain are unique and hiking up Table Mountain will expose them to you.
