I did the "hard route" up table mountain with Riaan it took around 6 hrs. The views and flowers were amazing. The trek was the highlight of my entire 2 week trip to South Africa. Would defiantly recommend to anyone who is reasonably fit and hope to do it again one day! Riaan knows literally everything about the mountain.

Riaan was an amazing guide! Very knowledgeable about all things South Africa. Riaan recounted many anecdotes along the way, which spiced up the entire experience. Rest stops were peppered with descriptions of the fauna, wildlife, and views. Would definitely recommend him to anyone who wishes to hike table mountain!

The hike Riaan took my husband and I on was one of the highlights of our honeymoon! He is an AMAZING guide. The hike he took us up was challenging with AMAZING views, and had the perfect amount of adrenaline fueled edginess (Grotto-Cairn Traverse and fountain ravine). We are definitely coming back and calling Riaan. He is knowledgable, fun and... More

If you are reasonably fit and okay with heights then you have to climb to the top of Table Mountain via the India Venster route and cable car down! However, you need a really good guide (we were lucky to have Riaan) who can reassure you all the way and explain the technical parts. Through his guidance and reassurance he... More

The hike is amazing and the views are perfect as you go up. It is recommended to have a guide because guides know the hikes best and can tell you all about the spots on your way up, using a guide to hike table mountain will also serve as a protection mechanism against potential robbers therefore I highly advise you...

Me and my wife hiked Table Mountain with Riaan earlier this year (March '15). The trip was amazing and Riaan does a perfect job as a guide. We felt very safe, comfortable and heard a number of great stories about Cape Town, mountains and wildlife. Strongly recommended, it will be one of the highlights of your trip. If you plan... More

Just fantastic, we did India Venster - an incredible route up to the Table. Some fitness and sense of adventure is required but it's well worth it. A special thank you to Hendre for being the best mountain guide I've ever come across - fun, engaging, knowledgeable but most importantly a genuinely lovely person. We'll be back!

We had HENDRE as a guide and did a wonderful hike to the top. She really motivated the group of 8 to get to the top on 4 hours, see the sunset and come down in the cable car ready for a shower and dinner. I want ot thank her for her work doing this hike. She is in very... More
