We begin by taking the cable car to the upper cable way station where we set off along one of the paths at the top There is a gully at the top of platteklip gorge to descend and ascend with chains to hold onto but it is easily done It is the only strenuous part The hike carries on along the top for about an hour to eventually reach Maclears beacon the highest point of the table From there we can have a drink and snacks then hike back to the cable station about 40 min to an hour On the way we see the dams built as the original water source for Cape Town I can share some of my knowledge of the history and also of our amazing floral kingdom If it’s an evening hike Cape Town would be lighting up like fairyland as the cabin descends back to the lower cable station
I have extensive knowledge of Table Mountain and Cape Town. I am a qualified Tour Guide, certified by the South African Tourism Department. When I owned my Bed and Breakfast, I used to regularly take my guests on guided tours and hikes in and around Cape Town and specifically Table Mountain. My passion has always been to expose my guest to new interesting and special experiences, sharing my knowledge, and hopefully leaving them with wonderful memories of Cape Town and Table Mountain.
Hopefully guest can request their choice of drink before hand as these will be carried in a back pack
The beauty of this hike along the top of Table Mountain is being away from the crowded area. On this specific hike we'll see very few people as not many people venture this far along the top of the mountain. It feels like one is alone to be embraced by the exquisite flora and the beautiful views of Cape Town. The lighting at sunset is exceptionally beautiful
最多可有10位年满4周岁的参与者参加。 There I one short fairly tricky part to descend and ascend with chains to hold onto if necessary otherwise it a very flat walk
It is always nice to choose a day which is hot then the evening should be mild If a day walk is chosen best to choose a good day otherwise have a good head covering against the wind Booking for the cable car can be made on line
