The least frequented of the peaks forming Cape Town's city bowl, well worth a visit for those who prefer to get away from the crowds on Table Mountain, Lions Head and Signal Hill. I went up at 11am on a Saturday morning and met no more than a dozen people all the way. Park towards the far end of Tafelberg... More

Well worth the hikes as long as the weather is good. Cloud cover can be zero near cable car but thick at devils peak. 1hr walk from cable car easy to do.

On Saturday my boyfriend and I attempted to hike to the top of Devil's Peak via Tafelberg Road, but unfortunately had to turn back after a large group of men began following us. We had noticed them earlier as they were whistling and swearing quite loudly, but foolishly decided to continue. It soon became evident that the group were adjusting... More

high up on the slopes of table mountain this suburb has great views of the city and harbour. but on windy days it can be very very windy. if you are not fit. walking or cycling up here is a tough exercise. even for fit guys it could be tough to get up the steep roads.

I don't consider myself a dare devil but when I saw the façade of this peak I found it breathtaking. When I found out that there was tandem hang gliding off of this peak on to the beach below I had to try. The hang glide pro's were awesome and made me feel so comfortable. The assured me that we...

I liked this mountain best of the 3 mountains. Since there is much less people going here the bushes grows over the paths makes it feel like you're the first person going there. I started to climb this mountain quite late and it was dark when I arrived back down. I didn't see a single person on the whole hike.... More

Hiked up here daytime. We were almost alone, it seems few other tourists go here. Beautiful mountain, loads of flowers. Liked it better than Table Mountain because it was so quiet. Tip- wear long tights due to scratching bushes and narrow paths some places. You dont need hiking boots, running shoes are fine. Bring loads of water!

The views from the top are more stunning than from Table Mountain and it is a lot less crowded. Lovely hike up there.

It would be best to visit this place in the evening. In the morning, the view is nice too. However, the view of the whole town below is mesmerizing at night, the town light’s twinkling and cast in a golden glow. The hike till the peak was itself an exciting adventure. The wildlife here was also nice; the beautiful flowers,... More
