Always a pleasant and fairly safe walk up Platteklip route for Table Mountain. Good scenic views of the Cape Town on a clear day.

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

My sister and I hiked India Venster with Riaan at the end of May. It was one of the highlights of our very highlight-ful 2 week trip to South Africa from the East Coast of the US. It was definitely a work out and the India Venster path is really for people who are on the active side. The views... More

My brother and I decided on the India Venster route. My fitness level is average. Hendre was amazing & encouraging. She made me feel safe through each scrambling section. It was rainy, cold, and a bit windy in some parts but the experience was well worth it. If we ever return to Cape Town, we would definitely love to do... More

We loved our experience last february. We had Riaan as a guide and we loved him. Very secure and experienced. We were afraid of heights and that day, with Riaan we faced our fear. We had to do scrambling in the rocks, walking at the edge of the cliffs and many other defying gravity maneuvers. Riaan's knowledge around table mountain... More

My friends and I wanted to hike Table Mountain during our trip to Cape Town and we found Riaan through an internet search for guides. We took the India Venster trail up the mountain at 7:30am with our guide Hendre. She was very knowledgeable about the plant and animal life on the trail, and helped us immensely during the scrambling... More

My husband and I are not early morning activity goers, but I decided we had to hike up Table Mountain. After consulting with Riann via e-mail, I settled on the India Venster hike, but was nervous from the moment I committed through most of our trip since the hike was the morning of our last full day. Our guide Darren... More
