I am interested in hiking Indian Venster with my boyfriend when we get to Cape Town in a couple weeks. I am wondering how necessary it is to get a guide. I would like to avoid spending the extra money if it's doable for two people on their own. Thanks!

Hi Casey. I strongly recommend a guide for India Venster, as the route involves scrambling and exposure to heights.
