An early morning start is essential to avoid the full sun. Our guide Hendre was 'full of beans' and definiately knew the routes, she was very enthusiastic and at times I needed this to help me get to the top. This is obviously an uphill climb so do not expect a sunday morning stroll, this is at times hard work... More

We did the Skeleton Gorge trail and I would highly recommend it. Hiking up table mountain was our most favorite part of our South African trip! It took about 4-5 hours and it was tough enough to be challenging but easy enough to really enjoy every view. Liesl was the best guide. She set up a lot of breaks and... More

I can't recommend this hiking/guide company enough. Riaan is the owner and has several guides available for hire. We used "Hendre" for a hike up the India Venster trail to the top of Table Mountain. It's a great hike with amazing views of Cape Town and the ocean. Riaan recommends that you leave in the VERY early hours of the... More

Hiked up Table Mountain twice with Hike Table Mountain and Johan on both occasions. Must say, both walks were excellent. India Venster I would rate as an easier walk as there is more scrambling involved, so more time for breaks to recover! Skeleton Gorge, great, but I found this a bit of a killer doing this after Christmas and New... More

We did a hike on the Kaastelsport route with Ray in October and had an absolutely brilliant day. My fiancé has an issue with sheer heights if she is near a cliff edge etc so we initially received brilliant advice on which route to chose. On the day, Ray was extremely friendly and informative and made Caroline feel very relaxed... More

Liesal is one of the best guides we have ever had. Besides being extremely knowledgeable about the unique flora and fauna of this ancient Mountain park, she is extremely friendly, attentive and clearly has a fantastic passion and attitude to her job.

Depart from roads memorial to block house and then proceed straight to the top along saddle ridge.

We decided to use this company to hike up Table Mountain and I cannot speak highly enough of them based on our experience. Firstly hiking up the mountain can be difficult partly due to unpredictable weather and from underestimating the physical effort required (if you aren't quite as fit as you thought you were like yours truly). Riaan was great... More

We arranged for a guide to help us ascend Table Mountain via the India Venster Trail. They will ask you your fitness and adventure level via email during the booking process to gauge what would be the best trail for your hiking competency. However, it’s not always going to be accurate because Riaan recommended us go an easier trail but... More
