Know More about this tour

This half day hike begins on Tafelberg Road, only  couple kilometers from the lower cable station. Your knowledgeable and passionate guide will be with you at the start of the trail to begin the "zigzag" ascent. It will not be long till you can look back onto views of the city and bay below so keep your camera's accessible.
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 "dassie" and if you are lucky a rare mountain goat. 
Take breaks breath the fresh air and gorgeous views with cliff faces towering over you. Welcome encouragement from fellow hikers and locals cheering you to the summit. 
Once at the top you can enjoy the relief of a flat surface to explore. .This is the only mountain peak in Cape Town where you can enjoy a coffee, beer or bite to eat in a summit cafe.
We hope you will be inspired!
