What to Expect
Take a hike of a lifetime with the Ridgeway Ramblers on your South African adventure. We will tailor-make your hike to suit your expectations, ability and time. Your registered guide will help you spot all the great flora, fauna and history of this incredible area. You can choose your route ranging from 3-6 hours, depending on what you want.

Platteklip Gorge: approximate duration: +/- 3 hours.
Here you can climb to the top of Table Mountain for a spectacular look out over the city. From the top of the gorge it's only another 10-minute walk to the cable car statin, so you can get down nice and easily.

This hike includes steep inclines.

India Venster: approximate duration: +/- 3 hours
For the adventurers amongst you, this is the hike for you. You'll go almost directly underneath the cable car until you turn onto the Western Cliffs. Here you can scramble up the rocks to reach the top. Depending on your time and strength, you can either hike down the Platteklip Gorge or take the cable car.

This hike is not suitable for anyone who is afraid of heights! Both of these hikes can be combined with a flat walk to Maclears Beacon, which at 3,559ft (1085m), is the highest point of the mountain.

Smuts Track: approximate duration: 6 hours
If you're looking for a fun and easy day hike, this is just your style. Ascend to the back of Table Mountain from Kirstenbosch Gardens and then climb through the incredible lush forest. Here you can spot incredible wildlife and flowers before enjoying lunch at the Maclears Beacon (the highest point of the mountain). You can either continue your hike through Platteklip Gorge or take the cable car back down.

12 Apostles: approximate duration: 6 hours
The 12 Apostles of Table Mountain are a must on everyone's "to-do" list in South Africa. Today you can hike the historic Pipe Track to Kasteelspoort, where you have a chance to visit the waterworks museum and enjoy lunch alongside one of the five reservoirs that are up here. This hike is suited to your needs with a number of different descents possible.
