Table Mountain Hiking

Climb one of the new natural wonders of the world: This is one for the bucket list! There’s no better way to experience the phenomenal beauty of this world-famous geological formation/ landmark than by navigating the paths to its summit on foot. The hike takes in breathtaking views of the Cape and offer travellers the opportunity to experience the local fynbos flora.


Safety Instructions

We comply with the following hiking rules issued by Table Mountain Aerial Cableway:

  • Never climb alone
  • Allow enough time to get up and down in daylight
  • Carry everything in a backpack to keep arms and hands free
  • Stick to well-recognised paths and pay attention to warnings
  • Go with somebody who knows the way; alternatively use a map or guidebook
  • Choose your route according to the ability, fitness and experience of the group
  • Always be prepared for bad weather and take waterproof and windproof clothing
  • Tell someone where you are going, which route you’ll use, and your expected time of return
  • If you get lost or find yourself in an area that looks unsafe, try your best to retrace your steps
  • Always watch the weather and time and turn back as soon as bad weather threatens or if the route is no longer easy to follow
  • Every party should have a leader. Keep together and travel at the pace of the slowest. Never split up or head in different directions
  • Stay put in the event of trouble. Don’t try to force your way down in darkness or mist. Find shelter, especially from the wind (to avoid the risk of hypothermia)
  • One of the most valuable emergency tools you can have these days is your mobile phone. Make sure at least one person in the group has a fully charged phone with sufficient credit
  • It’s also a good idea to have a list of emergency numbers saved
