What you'll do

I want to share the quieter wilderness areas of Table Mountain with you. We will head up a trail on the Camps Bay side of the park that will take us to the top of the Twelve Apostles which has rich views and spectacular fynbos. We will meander along the top to Tranquility Cracks which, as the name suggests is a small network of channels carved between the sandstone rocks. There's a wonderful lookout place at Tranquility where we'll stop for some freshly percolated coffee and rusks that I'll bring with on the hike. The views over Camps Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, combined with the quiet of the location provide a memorable experience. After our coffee and rusks we will descend one of the trails back down to Camps Bay where our trail ends. I love taking photos and will ensure that I capture some postcard shots of you and the scenery. Note: My base rate is R 1000 or USD 67 (price for 2 people) even if only one person decides to hike. I reserve the right to cancel and refund your money the night before if the base rate is not met.

Derek

I'm a former game ranger, passionate about the outdoors and fitness. I worked as a field guide at Singita in the Kruger National Park where the guest experience is of utmost importance. I take guests into the Table Mountain National Park to expose them to its timeless beauty and to ensure they leave as friends with enriched hearts and minds. I live in Cape Town now, and have 12 year's experience trail running and exploring the Table Mountain. My main job is running my company, Freedom Walkers where we make affordable walking devices for kids with special needs. I look forward to hosting you as we explore some of my favourite, quiet parts of Table Mountain.

More tips

The hike up Kasteelspoort is not technical, but it is a fair climb. The views will certainly make up for it. Please note my base rate of R1000 (USD 67) applies even if only 1 person joins for the hike. I reserve the right to cancel and refund the night prior if the base rate is not met.
