Guided Hiking Tour

Cape Town

Activity Description

Discover a new angle to Cape Town’s largest landmark on this scenic hiking tour. Experience the landscape that changes with every new elevation and take-in the dramatic panorama of Cape Town from above. Guest will be giving the choice of hiking to the top of one of the seven natural wonders of the world (Table Mountain) or venturing up the trail to the summit of a local favourite (Lions Head.)

Meet your guide at the Table Mountain Cable Way Station for this half-day hike in Table Mountain National for this endurance hike that starts at the very base of the mountain, travelling along scenic paths through the wild flora and fauna.

Table Mountain Hike requires moderate fitness level as the hike is roughly 1000m in distance and includes scrambling, climbing, and hiking sections. Tackling Lion’s Head is just as scenic of a route but offers an easier gradient/incline. There is a chain and ladder section which requires guides to climb. Moderate fitness is required but this is definitely an easier option than Table Mountain.

Please note: This activity is weather permitting. We will look at the weather forecast closer to the date and will contact you directly if any changes are required (we sometimes start the hike earlier to avoid the heat of midday.)
