This scenic route starts from Camps Bay and ascends on the western or Twelve Apostles side of Table Mountain. The view was not splendid that day, but the hike was still a spectacular and special experience due to the changing landscape, the Fynbos flowers and the hiking experience. On reaching the top, we could take dramatic photo shots waiting for... More

We had a spectacular day for the hike up Platterklip gorge after several days of high winds.After 24hrs of intensive training we were ready to go at 7am. Margaret very swiftly summed us up and kept the pace steady but fast enough to stop us seizing up! Margaret was extremely knowledgeable on the flora and fauna which added to the... More

We um'd and ah'd over whether to walk up table mountain or get the cable car, eventually plumping for the former and were glad we did. Not only does Margaret take you on a great walk up and around the mountain, she is a fountain of knowledge around the local flora and fauna as well as giving inside information on... More

My friend and I hiked up Table Mountain with guide Pietro Villa and would highly recommend this experience! Pietro picked us up at our hotel and drove us to the base of the trail, on the way providing us with a wealth of background information regarding the history of the city and the mountain itself. He did a great job... More

Me and my girlfriend booked a hike up Table Mountain through the skeleton Gorge with Margaret. Even though it was a very hot day, the hike was amazing. Margaret is a very competent and nice guide. If we ever come back to Cape Town we'll definitely book a hike (either through the Cape Point Nature Reserve or up lionshead) with... More

We found Margaret's website listed in our guidebook and weren't sure what to expect, but the hike she took us on far exceeded anything we were hoping for. She was able to accommodate us on short notice and responded to us very quickly after we filled out the form on her website. The group was only 6 (7 including Margaret)... More

I found Tablemountainwalks on the internet before our trip to South Africa,and even then Margaret helped us to choose the most appropriate trip. On the morning of our planned walk up Table Mountain,there were strong winds and total cloud cover of the mountain,so on Margarets advice we did Lion's Head instead. We rescheduled our Table Mountain walk and were blessed... More

Margaret is very knowledgeable and friendly and we would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to hike up Table Mountain. Margaret picked us up from our hotel, the One and Only, and drove us to the base of the mountain near the cable car. We thoroughly enjoyed the trek up (which we did in about 1.5 hours pushing relatively hard)... More
