Stuart is a fantastic guide who clearly loves what he does and is keen to impart knowledge and get you excited about the wonderful fynbos all around you on the hiking trail

It's a great route up Table Mountain and we always felt safe and never rushed.

Sadly we went up on a day when the mountain had it's table cloth on and hiked through the cloud to the top, but we had a fab time despite this! Highly recommended route in any weather :)

We had an incredible experience with Stuart. He guided us on the India Venster route up Table Mountain and, while it was a *little* scary at times for people with a fear of heights (like me), he made us extremely comfortable and safe. He was extremely knowledgeable about flora, fauna, and the history of Cape Town and this was one of our top adventures while in South Africa. Book it today!

Highly recommend Wild Things Outdoors; I did two tours with them: Lions Head at Sunrise and India Venster Table Mountain, both with excellent guides who were extremely friendly and knowledgeable and provided fantastic experiences during my visit to Cape Town.
