My wife, our three teenage boys and I, recently undertook this walking tour. Steve presented the tour brilliantly and it was both highly informative and entertaining. I highly recommend this tour for anyone that wants to look a bit deeper than the surface of beautiful intoxicating Cape Town.

I did a couple of days walking with Steve Bolnick 3 years ago and returned this time with my wife and three other couples for 2 weeks. Steve organised an amazing program including - his 5 day Mountains in the Sea walk; tours of Cape Town, the townships and the wine lands; and then a 5 day safari in the... More

In March 2014, me, my older brother, my older sister and my parents traveled all the way from San Diego to Cape Town. On the first day, we met Steve and hiked up Table Mountain. Steve made our hike so much more enjoyable -- it's impossible to fully appreciate hiking and walking in South Africa without a guide. A guidebook... More

Where to start! Steve Bolnick, humorous, encyclopedic knowledge, great company and an outstanding guide. The Walk - Table Mountain to Cape Point over 5 days - spectacular views, unique flora and fauna, great walking trails and excellent accommodation. Stellenbosch and surrounds - wine and more wine, some of the best South Africa has to offer. Timbavati game reserve and Umlani... More

We had booked a hiking trip in Cape Town in advance through our travel agent, and ended up having an amazing trip up Nursery Ravine to Table Mountain with our guide Steve Bolnick. He chose where to go based on our requests, and guided us up to the "back table" and even served us lunch at the very top :)... More

My family did a 7 hour hike up Table Mountain with Steve and it was the highlight of our trip to Cape Town. Steve is the most knowledgeable guides I've ever met and has the rare ability to point out little details in the flora and fauna along the way that most guides would miss. We learned so much and...

Had a fabulous holiday in South Africa which included some very picturesque walks around the Cape Town to Cape of Good Hope areas. Steve was very interesting about the local flora and fauna - but also the cultural aspects of SA - great to get a bit more information and flavour for where you are, not just the information of...

We can't thank Steve and Annele enough for coping with all adversities on the day- two wrecks and two walkers not used to Cape Town heat all not only survived but had a great time! Botany lessons, pink lemonade and Cape Malay treats for lunch added a fine touch to the magical views. You really pulled it off, Steve- thank... More

Our family of 4 had a memorable 7-hour hike around the Cape of Good Hope with Steve Bolnick of Walk in Africa. The scenery there is spectacular and Steve is a rare find – an expert on local plants, birds, animals and history who is also an extremely capable hiking guide and GREAT company. Highly recommend!!

Thanks for your wonderful walk up Table Mountain, loved meeting Meru. I enjoyed learning all about the history of the mountain and the various ecological developments. I would love to do your 5 day walk to Cape Point. I couldn't recommend Steve enough for anyone needing a guide in Cape Town. Thanks Steve! Becca
