Hike Table Mountain with a Guide

Cape Town, South Africa

Experience hosted by Martin

  1. 3.5 hours
  2. Hosted in English

What you'll do

We will hike to the summit of the iconic Table Mountain and experience why it's one of the New7Wonders of Nature.

We will take our favorite more easily missed paths to the top. There are many routes that go up and together we will find one that suits your skill and confidence level. The trails all include a combination of hiking, varied levels scrambling and exposure to heights that will allow us to reach incredible viewpoints of Lion's Head, Twelve Apostles,
Camps Bay, Back Table, and the Mother City. If you have a specific route in mind we can help you determine if it is suitable for you. The trails we do include India venster, Kasteelspoort, Skeleton gorge, and platteklip gorge but if possible and you are able we can do some more wild options.

En route, we will take you into the world of the breathtaking Fynbos Floral Kingdom and the very first occupants of Southern Africa who named the mountain 'Hoerikwaggo' or Mountain in the sea.

Once we reach the summit we will go to one of the awesome viewpoints to take some summit photos or just enjoy the view from the top.

If the Cable Car Station is open then the hike will finish there, where you can then spend some more time at the top and soak in some more views or go and enjoy a well-deserved treat from the restaurant, my recommendations being their coffee, cold beer, appletiser, and milk tart.
Other things to note
Experience duration is dependent on the route and guests fitness and should take between 3-5 hours. The experience ends at cable car, if its closed then please add another 1-2 hours for the hike down.

Once in a life time experience. My guide Chizzy was very knowledgable of the plant and wildlife on the mountain, made me feel very safe and above all was great fun and brilliant company for the 2 hour climb. The route we took was perfect for my fitness, ability and risk appetite. Hope to do it again some day. Thank you to Chizzy and Martin!

You can hike up without a guide, but, certainly with Martin, so much better to go up with a guide. Martin was a really great guide, set the right pace stopped at good points and shared a lot of info along the route. Well worth it.

Has a fantastic time on the hike up Table Mountain with Martin. He was very knowledgeable of the mountain and it’s plants/flowers, and was a good gauge of his guests hiking skills. Would definitely hike with him again.

The hike to table mountain is a must-do if you’re ever in Cape Town and couldn’t think of a better guide to do it with but Martin. He’s a passionate, friendly and knowledgeable guide with lots of local tips. I highly recommend this experience!

Highly recommend this hiking tour! The hike was more intense than I expected and Martin made it such an enjoyable experience! He is very knowledgeable and passionate about what he does and an absolute blast to be around. You will have fun all the way to the top when you book with Martin and the mountain views are amazing!

Martin was a fantastic guide and took us on an amazing route up table mountain. My girlfriend and I climbed Lions Head previously without a guide but we're really glad we had Martin showing us the ropes, as it's such an easy mountain to get lost on. We loved his sense of humour and storytelling too, as well as amazing facts about the local plant life and wild life.
