On the morning we were due to climb India Venster it was very foggy and Riaan warned us it may not clear. We took the gamble and it totally paid off. As we arrived at the foot of our climb the sun was rising and we were above a blanket of cloud. Stunning views and a fantastic walk up a... More

We hiked the mountain with our guide Hendre who was fantastic! She was a fun and knowledgable guide. I did this hike with my two boys aged 11 and 15 years and we did the 'B' grade scramble which was challenging in places but a lot of fun! The cloud came in for the last quarter of our hike but...

We spent a long time poring over Hike Table Mountain's website to see which of the many route options we wanted to try - from botanical splendour to heart-stopping scrambles, there were so many sides to this magnificent mountain. Eventually we settled on the 12 Apostles route - simply because of the spectacular views it offered, changing all the way... More

I am in my early 50s and was daunted the night before when I read about the hike-it being for the more adventurous as it was booked by my colleague. I did some yoga but know that I do not have much stamina. I was really winded and needed to stop to catch my breathe twice until Darren,our guide pointed... More

I did this route up Table mountain with Darren as my guide. He was really helpful, patient and relaxed and had lots of stories and general information to share with us. The hike itself was beautiful and took us about 4 hours, including lots of stops and sitting enjoying the views. It is a somewhat challenging, but I expected a... More

My wife and I traveled to Cape Town for our honeymoon and spent a morning hiking up Table Mountain with our guide Hendry. The hike and views were amazing, the trails were kept in good condition and we would recommend this tour to anyone.

What an absolutely incredible experience. I booked with Hike Table Mountain and chose this route called India Venster thanks to my discussions with Riaan(owner) on email. He was great and he was spot on his call for us to do the India Venster route. We met Mike, our Guide, right on time. He was helpful and engaging the whole time.... More

My husband and I hiked the India Venster route with Riaan Vorster and it was a superb way to see Table Mountain without the tourist chaos at the top. Riaan is so familiar with the mountain and helps everyone along the route. We had not done our research well clearly so came with less than sufficient water, and were a... More

We did India Venster route with Hendre. She was wonderful, knowledgeable and calming. This was an amazing experience that applies to life. When your mind is telling you to quit, just keep going and great things will happen. Couple times I felt like I wanted to stop but Hendre kept encouraging me and with her sweet calming voice I just... More
