Table Mountain Hike in Cape Town
"Africa’s greatest garden Kirstenbosch sets the scene for this iconic hike. Hikers set off through immaculate landscaped gardens only to plunge into the indigenous forest that cloaks Table Mountain’s eastern flanks. A winding path leads to Skeleton Gorge a deeply scored ravine that steepens gradually as you ascend leading to a ladder section and after a small stretch of boulders to negotiate. The forest walk is cool and shady; birdsong and the sound of running water provide the soundtrack all the way up until the unlikely spectacle of a white sand beach greets hikers- perfect for a lunch stop.""
From $190.00
 
Silvermine Nature Reserve Hike from Cape Town
"Hikes can be tailor-made to accommodate all levels of fitness and interest. Silvermine is ideal for easy introductory hikes and family rambles (children love the caves) but there are plenty of tougher routes too. It’s also a good birding area bird watchers can expect to see several endemic species excellent for flowers year-round and in spring it’s not uncommon to look out over the turquoise waters of False Bay and see whales far below – quite a sighting on a mountain hike.""""Walkers who want to enjoy a classic mountain hike with all the big views but don’t want to walk up Table Mountain will find the mountains of the Silvermine Reserve perfect. Only 20 minutes from Cape Town and lower and more sheltered than Table Mountain
From $151.00
 
Private Hiking Tour of Table Mountain
"Some of the hiking options include: Western Table to Maclears Beacon: An experienced guide will meet the guests at their accommodation and drive to the Cableway station. From here we take the cable car up to the top and walk to Maclear's Beacon the highest point of Table Mountain. This is an easy 2 hours return walk giving our guests the opportunity to enjoy a 360 degree view of Cape Town False Bay the Atlantic Ocean and Lion's Head. This can take up to 60 people at a time and does a full rotation enabling guests to enjoy 360 degree views of Cape Town Lions Head and the Mountain itself. This is a pleasant walk across the flat-topped table plateau overlooking the city and passes through some marshy frog breeding areas with interesting vegetation. We also take the cable car down after the walk.T we can make a detour to Maclear's Beacon crossing through Echo Valley. This option will take about 5 hours."

Table Mountain, of course

Everyone must make a trip up Table Mountain. I had to wait 5 days for the weather to clear otherwise the cable cars won't be running and there wouldn't be a view anyway. So I suggest that if you...
