OTC Adventures

India Venster

This route is one of our top recommendations! It starts on the north face of the mountain with breath taking views of the city and Table Bay, then it swings around to the west side of the mountain, with superb views of Camps Bay, the Twelve Apostles and the Atlantic Ocean. The route involves scrambling (elementary climbing) and exposure to heights (narrow ledges – nothing extreme) about 15% of the way, so you do need a head for heights. No experience required, only a sense of adventure!

Hike Duration: About 3.5 hours
