Table Mountain Platteklip Hike

A visit to Cape Town is simply incomplete without an adventure hike up Table Mountain, the “Mother City’s” most iconic and world renowned tourist destination. Join us on a Table Mountain Hike and experience the beautiful fynbos and breathtaking views while conquering one of the New7Wonders of the Natural World on foot.


Platteklip Gorge is the shortest route straight up to the summit. Probably the most popular route as it is clearly visible and the path follows underneath the cable car. Straight up makes Platteklip Gorge one of the most strenuous routes to the summit with a climb from 350m above sea level at the bottom station of the cable car to 1020m above sea level when you reach the top. The beauty of nature that you will experience and the wide angle views will make every step worth your while.

This graceful mountain that towers over Cape Town is a hikers paradise with many awesome hiking trails that lead to the summit. These vary from leisurely climbs to more strenuous ascents for those of us with an appetite for a good challenge and a bit of adventure!

Nature lovers and photographers alike will enjoy a unique opportunity to hike through Table Mountain’s “fynbos”, the indigenous flora of the Cape Floral Kingdom, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2004. Here, on the slopes of Table Mountain, fynbos is carefully conserved as a proud natural emblem of Cape Town’s authentic beauty.

Our qualified and experienced hiking guides are well equipped and able to navigate the mountain, while abiding closely to safety regulations in order to ensure your well being.
