Riaan explained that we could take the easy... More

Riaan Vorster is without a doubt the best guide for a Table Mountain hike. He is a knowledgeable and experienced hiker and climber, as well as an excellent natural guide.

When you visit Cape Town and want to see it from it's best side, do your self a favour and go for a hike on Table Mountain. Better yet, take a guided hike to really get off the beaten track and see sides of the mountain you've never seen before. Recently I had a spare day and called Riaan (www.hiketablemountain.co.za),...
