About Table Mountain
By far the most famous land-mark in South Africa, the imposing profile of Table Mountain rises out majestically high above the Mother City. If you are an adventurous soul you cannot help but be tempted to go play on her flanks, explore her ravines or climb to her summit. The highest point on the mountain is known as Maclear’s Beacon and reaches an altitude of 1086m above sea level.

Table Mountain has many beautiful footpaths and exciting scrambling routes to explore; and with one of our highly qualified mountain guides you can be assured of an excellent and safe adventure. We offer half-day and full-day programs on Table Mountain and the surrounding peaks like Lion’s Head and Devils Peak or further along the Peninsula Mountains from Silvermine to Cape Point.

What is “Scrambling”?
Scrambling refers to very easy rock climbing and/or boulder hopping to negotiate an obstacle. On scrambling routes you can expect to use your hands to hold onto the rock and you may have to cross more difficult and exposed terrain. Our guides will always assist you on these parts of the route and may even rope you up for some of the climbing to ensure your safety. Following a scrambling route is an exciting and fun way of getting up the mountain and seeing the lesser known parts, away from the main tourist routes.

Half-day & Full-day Hikes
We offer various options on Table Mountain. Our popular half-day hikes normally make use of the well-known Cableway to descend the mountain after hiking to the top. Full-day hikes allow for seeing more of the mountain and often involve hiking both up and down, avoiding the cable car.

Grades & Difficulty
There are so many options available for hiking on Table Mountain and we able to cater for all age groups and all levels of fitness and experience. Most of our Table Mountain hikes are booked as Private Guiding, so the itinerary is flexible and we can consult with you about the various options before choosing a route.

Hikes are graded using the traditional South African system:

•A-grade: Indicates an easy footpath on moderate terrain
•B-grade: Indicates a route that requires some easy rock scrambling
•C-grade: Indicates a route that requires more difficult rock scrambling and exposed terrain
Table Mountain offers a route for everyone!
