India Venster Hike – Table Mountain – Cape Town

This adventurous route is one of our top recommendations for a hike on Table Mountain! It starts on the north face of the mountain with breath taking views of the city bowl 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 (rudimentary climbing) and exposure to heights (narrow ledges – nothing extreme) about 20% of the way, so you do need a head for heights. No experience required, only a sense of adventure!

This guided hike on Table Mountain is truly an amazing Cape Town experience!
