Zig-zag your way up the fastest route to the summit of Table Mountain in Cape Town, South Africa. This is the same path used before the cable-way was built. Look back at postcard views of Table Bay, Robben Island and down town Cape Town. This is the iconic way up the 7th Natural Wonder of the World. Enjoy time on the summit with many viewpoints and photo opportunities, grab a bite to eat or drink at the cafe on top and experience the cable-way back down the mountain.

Know More about this tour

This half day hike begins on Tafelberg Road, only a couple of kilometers from the lower cable station on Table Mountain. Your knowledgeable and passionate guide will be with you at the start of the trail to begin the "zigzag" ascent. 

The hike is a quick way up and was used by the first explorers and tourists to the summit of the worlds 7th natural wonder, Table Mountain. It takes 2 hours on average to get to the top and it is recommended you take the cable car back down in order to give you more time in your day. 

While you are ascending and when you are at the summit your guide will point out features of interest and places to get that perfect Instagram shot. Look for local bird and flower species, the common Rock Hyrax "Dassie" and if you are lucky an exotic but rare Himalayan Mountain Goat. 

Take breaks, breath the fresh air, and enjoy gorgeous views with cliff faces towering over you. Welcome encouragement from fellow hikers and locals cheering you to the summit.  Look back onto views of Devils Peak, Table Bay and the Mother City center. 

Once at the top you can enjoy the relief of a flat surface to explore. The panoramic views will wow you. This is the only mountain peak in Cape Town where you can enjoy a coffee, beer or bite to eat in a summit cafe.
