⭐Table Mountain Adventurous Hike & Cable Car Down

Join a bucket-list African adventure.

We will hike Table Mountain using the lessor known, more adventurous route up, away from the crowds.

Once on top, we will have a rare opportunity to walk along the Rim of Table Mountain (where tourists don't usually get to experience unless with local knowledge). After a quick picnic we then make our way to the upper Cable Station where we will take the cable car back down the mountain (if open - ticket fare not included - if the cable car is closed, we will hike down a common route)

Join a bucket-list African adventure. We'll be hiking to the top of Table Mountain via a lessor known and more adventurous and rugged route. This route involves scrambling up a more off the beaten path. Once on top we make our way towards the upper Cable Car Station where we take the cable car back down (if open).

We will get a rare opportunity to walk along the rim of Table Mountain where we stop to enjoy the stunning views from the edge of the table only accessible with local knowledge. If the cable car is open, we will then make our way to the Cable Car Station and view sites before going back down with the cable car (ticket fare not included - if the cable car is closed, we will hike down a common route)

We will also access some off the beaten track viewpoints with stunning photo opportunities. There will be some steep/exposed sections along the route. I will be assisting you with scrambling up these steep parts if required.

You would need to be comfortable with heights and be relatively fit. The hike up is steep and rocky going for at least 3.5 hours.
