I've been up the table mountain many times and this time I really wanted to hike up the mountain. We chose a super hot day to hike up the Platteklip gorge and it was amazing. Definitely beats queueing to go up in the cable car....More

This is one of the best ways to get to the top. It's much further than it looks when you get going, but any fit person will be able to get to the top eventually. Its great to start out close to the city and...More

Finding a map to this trail at the botanical gardens, where you start, was impossible. We needed to ask ground staff which direction to walk in just to find the start of the trail. Once at the start, there was also no signage as to...More

I last walked up the Pletteklip Gorge 18 years ago in Winter. It was quite warm then, so I prepared well for a summer ascent. We are both in our early 60s and reasonable fit. It took us, with two 10 minute stops for drinks...More

Easy if you're relatively fit, difficult if you're not. If it's windy at the trail head, the cable car may close due to high wind (> 25km/hr) while you are hiking up the trail so don't depend on using the cable car to get down...More

My wife and I hiked the India Venster trail. The views and experience of climbing the mountain are so much better going up via a climb compared to just the cable-car. If you have time, and ability I highly recommend doing this climb. The views...More

Hiked up as the cable car was closed. In my hotel receptionist's words 'my Grandma could hike up there, no worries'. This is completely wrong - I later found out she'd never done it herself. It's an enjoyable but at times challenging hike - but...More

This was probably the most difficult hike my friend and I have ever attempted. We started from Kirstenbosch gardens via Skeleton Goege. It's absolutely stunning and very rewarding when you get to the top. We initially hiked up to find the secret lake that our...More

We accessed the mountain from Newlands Forest, which is in the Southern Suburbs. The view of Table Mountain from this side is, in my opinion, much prettier than the internationally recognised view. You will need to wear decent walking shoes and ensure you have drinking...More
