Table Mountain Summit Walk

Cape Town

Activity Description

Join us for a SPECTACULAR guided walk up Platteklip Gorge. Experience breath taking views of the Mother City, Lions Head and the Atlantic Seaboard.

Cape Town lies in the Fynbos biome and forms part of the Cape Floral Kingdom. There are 6 floral kingdoms globaly and the Cape Floral Kingdom is the smallest and the most diverse per unit of area.

The diversity of fynbos plants is extremely high, with over 9000 species of plants occurring in the biome of which 6200 are endemic, i.e. growing nowhere else in the world.

Table Mountain supports 2200 species, more than the entire United Kingdom. Although the Fynbos only comprises 6% of the area of southern Africa, it has half the total number of plant species on the subcontinent – and has almost 1 in 5 of all African plant species so far described.

Hike takes approximately 2-3 hours and finishes with the option of doing the Table Mountain Abseil.

We require a minimum of 2 Pax in order for this trip to proceed.

Customer Reviews

The experience was amazing, really awesome and the guide that was with us was friendly and patient - Alain Emmanuel

Nice activity. Guide was good & friendly. - Steven Dutaut

We did the walk on 30/12/2016 and it was an amazing, but very tough climb. Your staff are a credit to your organisation and were very professional, caring and friendly. My daughter and son in law thoroughly enjoyed the abseil which was conducted very professionally and safely. We would definitely recommend your company to friends and acquaintances. Kind regards Ernest Blanchard - Ernest Blanchard
