Information

Table Mountain Hiking – Platteklip Hike

This is quite a strenuous hike, the front face of Table Mountain which over looks the City Centre, Table Bay and Robben Island. The route we follow was the first recorded route to be hiked by early explorers dating back to the early 1500’s! This is the only way to truly appreciate the views from the top of Table Mountain!

Itinerary:

You will be picked up at 07:30 by a guide and taken to the contour road on the front of Table Mountain above the city centre. You then begin hiking by winding your way up the front of the mountain stopping regularly along the way to take in the amazing views of the city and Table Bay.

As we make our way to the top you will notice how the vegetation changes along the way, a beautiful feature of the hike. Once at the top we amble around taking in the breath taking views. We then make our way down with the cable way.

The hike up is approximately 2 hours long and as there is not much shade from the sun we prefer starting earlier before it gets too hot.
