Table Mountain has beautiful walks. Short walks. Gentle hikes and more intense hikes. Do not hike/walk alone for your own safety. A twisted ankle, a fall to name but a few possible problems. Be prepared with sunscreen, water, hats and a map. Do not walk/hike for any length of time without these products. If it is very windy, do not... More

My husband & I enjoyed a wonderful day's hike with our guide Pietro. This was our second hike with Table Mountain Walks after a great day out with Margaret in 2009 whilst we were on honeymoon. Both Pierto & Margaret's knowledge of the area, wildlife & history have made our trips even more memorable. I wish the clouds separate for... More

This is a steep hike but an easy one. It took us circa 90 minutes form the bottom to the top and I would estimate that any family with reasonably fit teenage kids would be able to achieve the same. There are no technical parts in this climb at all. The coffee shop at the top rocks!

We hiked along to blockhouse and then onto the cable car. The hiking paths were amazing and the views of Table Bay harbour were stunning. There was no litter on the mountain and the Parks Board are doing a great job in maintaining this national heritage site.

My wife, our three children, and I had a wonderful afternoon hiking Platteklip Gorge. The hike was led by our expert guide, Pietro. It's winter so be prepared for it to get a little chilly but you quickly warm up as you work your way up the steep path to the top of the mountain. Wear layered clothing and bring... More

Took a guided walk with Pietro from Camps Bay across the National Park. Pietro's passion for this area and hiking, combined with knowledge of the fauna, flora and landscape made for an unforgettable hike. Pietro was careful to ensure our comfort and safety, moderating his pace to ours and advising the most appropriate route for our enjoyment. Thank you Pietro... More

We took the cable car up and back to Table Mountain....in the winter a warm jacket, hat, and gloves are a must with the cold gusty wind and cloud cover. If it's remotely clear, don't miss your chance because the clouds move fast and the views are stunning. That said, I recommend taking the last gondola up to catch the... More

On a good morning with no wind the walk from the cable station until maclears beacon will take you about 45 min . This is a flat walk and it can also be down as a run for the fit. I advise spreading some time at the beacon for a picnic The view from this point is spectacular. Enjoy the... More

My niece and I hiked Lion's Head Mt with Margaret in June/July 2014 (sorry this is a little late). We had a fantastic time -- my niece (16yo) is not much of a hiker and was very reluctant at first, but, by the end she was bounding up ladders and embracing the experience. Margaret was great: teaching us about the... More
