hikes & scrambles
By far the most famous land-mark in South Africa, the imposing profile of Table Mountain rises out majestically high above the Mother City. If you have an adventurous soul you cannot help but be tempted to go play on her flanks, explore her ravines or climb to her summit.
Table Mountain has many beautiful footpaths and exciting scrambling routes to explore; and with one of our highly qualified mountain guides you can be assured of an excellent and safe adventure. We have been guiding on Table Mountain for more years than anyone else, ensuring you of the best possible experience on TM.
Half-day, Full-day & Overnight hikes
We offer various options on Table Mountain.
Our popular half-day hikes normally make use of the well-known Cableway to descend the mountain after hiking to the top.
Full-day hikes allow for seeing more of the mountain and often involve hiking both up and down, avoiding the cable car.
We also offer overnight hiking on the Hoerikwaggo Trail or by making use of the various guest houses situated conveniently along the foot of the mountain. Please see our Table Mountain Trail page and consult with us for overnight hiking options
What is scrambling?
Scrambling refers to very easy rock climbing and/or boulder hopping needed to negotiate an obstacle. On scrambling routes you can expect to have to use your hands to hold onto the rock and you may have to cross more difficult and exposed terrain. Our guides will always assist you on these parts of the route and may even rope you up for some of the climbing to ensure your safety. Following a scrambling route is an exciting and fun way of getting up the mountain and seeing the lesser known parts, away from the main tourist routes.
Who can join a hike?
Any reasonably healthy and fit person is welcome. You do not have to be a marathon runner or even a regular hiker!
Our guides set an acceptable pace that suits the group and the terrain. Because of the proximity of the mountain to the City we are seldom pressed for time and we allow generous opportunity to relax and enjoy nature
