Guided Hiking in Cape Town - Hiking and walking trails.

Cape Town is an absolute hiker’s paradise. Whether you are staying in the city bowl, on the Atlantic Seaboard or in the Southern Suburbs there’s bound to be a stunning trail near you. But think twice before heading off on your own. Table Mountain’s notorious tablecloth can form in minutes when the South Easter picks up. Even on a perfect summers day you can suddenly find yourself in thick cloud with visibility limited to a couple of meters.

Qualified mountain guides, many of whom have grown up with the mountain as their playground, will keep you safe. They’ll also introduce you to the wonders of fynbos. Fynbos, the vegetation type that grows on Table Mountain is so phenomenally rich in species UNESCO ordained it a world heritage site. Guides will point out rare orchids and plants so aromatic hikers sometimes smell fragrant after a day in the mountains.

A guided hike will also get you off the beaten track and to where the wild things are. Away from the crowds that congregate on the main routes up the mountain, you might spot antelope, caracal or even the shaggy exotic goat called a tahr. You’ll think you are in the middle of a wilderness, not in the middle of a city.
