Hiking Cape Town

Table Mountain National Park is the most astonishingly beautiful city centre in the world.

Hiking in Cape Town

Table Mountain National Park is the most astonishingly beautiful city centre in the world. It’s not a hill, it really is a big mountain - over 1,000m high - and it is blessed with an astonishing biological diversity. It’s a world heritage site, and centre of the Cape Floral Region, the smallest and most biodiverse of the six floral regions of the world.

So hiking here is pure pleasure. Firstly, it’s really close to the city of Cape Town so there are no long car treks. Actually it’s literally in the city. It’s surrounded by sea so the views from the top or even from the slopes are a constant source of delight. And the floral diversity just adds another whole dimension. You can do an escorted day hike, or opt for a catered or self-catered multi-day hike staying in SANParks accommodation on the mountain or in B&Bs just off the mountains in the suburbs.

There is so much choice you will be blown away. Many born and bred Capetonians who walk on the mountain regularly still haven’t explored it all.
