We tracked up Platteklip Gorge to the top of Table Mountain. It is a well marked but steep climb with many steps. We are 50 and the climb took 1 hr and 50 minutes. The views on the way up are lovely and the view from the top is breathtaking. Thus was a highlight from our visit to Cape Town.... More

I'm sure you've read countless reviews on why you should hike Table Mountain/ Lions Head while in South Africa.... I'm sure you've even read hundreds of reviews on why you should do it with Riaan... well everything you've read about the Lion's head hike and hiking with Riaan are TRUE! Doing this hike, and being guided by Riaan were one... More

We chose to take the cable way up and to walk down. It was a hot day for hiking and we had not brought enough water. That made the hike an exhausting experience. The hike it self was scenic and beautiful. I would say you should be quite fit to do it. It seemed like most people chose to walk... More

You can hike up table top mountain or you can experience it, hiking up with Riaan you get to experience the mountain. I hike plenty of US national parks without guides, but I highly recommend going with Riaan for this one, and not just to avoid the blister bush and to follow the "trail" (which really isn't marked at all)....

Climbing Table Mountain was an incredible and exhilarating experience and I am so glad we hired a guide! My husband and I hiked the India Venster with Hendre and she was our "cheat sheet" to the top. Hendre picked us up from our apartment and we started up the mountain just as the sun was rising. (The early wake-up call... More

Best way to get over Jet-lag. I arrived Friday, got up early Saturday (in fact, Riaan picked me up in his car - great personal service!!) and hiked up to the top of Table Mountain - one of the best experiences ever!! I chose India Venster route and it was ideal for me - challenging, not too much 'scrambling' and... More

I have been wanting to climb Table Mountain for several years now but it always seemed that something else got in the way to thwart my plans. But a few days ago, I finally had the opportunity to hike the India Venster route with Riaan and Mike and oh man, it totally exceeded my expectations in terms of awesomeness. If... More
