What you'll do

Join a bucket-list African adventure. We'll be hiking to the highest point of Table Mountain via a lessor known and more adventurous and enchanting route, Skeleton Gorge. Once up and out of the gorge, we visit the dam on top of Table Mountain for a break/snack/swim. Thereafter we make our way to the front face to summit the highest point on Table Mountain via lush table top route. We then walk along the rim of the front face of Table Mountain and take another break/snack/pictures at one of the best vantage points from the top before making our way to the upper Cable Station. Here we take the cable car down, if open. If not, we hike down the common route, Platteklip Gorge.
