We took the Skeleton Gorge hike with Liesl- a fantastic guide. The hike itself is a fun and not overly challenging climb (you still have to be reasonably fit for it though!) but offers amazing scenery and views throughout the climb. Liesl was amazing throughout. She helped the group (4 of us) up and made sure we were going at... More

I have always wanted to hike up Table Mountain and finally got to do it!. What an amazing experience. Could not have wished for a better guide than Riaan. Everything was handled so professionally and everything is explained with no hidden agendas. The weather was awesome. Thank you Riaan I will be back to do more hikes...

Just returned from hiking up India Venster with our fab guide- Hendre. The first part is more challenging than it looks & definitely warms you up but Hendre did keep checking we were all ok & admired the views whilst we caught our breath! From there up we scrambled our way through the rocks, looking up you think you'll never... More

If you are active and love the outdoors then you must climb Table Mtn with Riaan or one of his great team. We have now done this twice and if we get back to Cape Town we will do it again. Great guides and a nice climb.

Me and my husband did the Indian Venster hike yesterday with Mike. It was one of the best things we have ever done and the highlight of our honeymoon trip so far. I am a bit afraid of heights and it's definitely not the route for anyone that cant cope with heights but if your willing to face your fear... More

Thank you Riaan for this mornings hike on the India Venster Trail. I can't think of a better way to ascend Table Mountain. Views, fun scrambling and more incredible views. Why on earth queue for the cable car when you can climb the rock. Perfectly suitable for anyone with a sense of adventure and even a modicum of fitness. Would... More

I hiked with my family up table mountain. I did this two years ago without my family and decided to go up the same route again - India Venster. This time my guide was Johan. We were a group of 5 people and the weather started well, We had excellent viewing weather for about two hours until the clouds rolled... More

Did the India Venster hike. Def worth it, but involves much scrambling/climbing. However Riaan was so helpful in providing detailed guidelines of where to step. When looking up, the trail looks intimidating, but once you did it, it was well worth it. I definitely recommend this trail! =)

My partner and I first met Riaan in September 2007 when we visited Cape Town and wanted to hike up Table Mountain. I am pretty certain that we did the India Venster route given the challenging scrambling and physical demand! Riaan was a highly experienced, knowledgeable and patient guide, even when we insisted on not taking the cable car down... More
