We will start with a walking tour around the largest botanical garden in South Africa to admire its great diversity of flowering plants. The route is perfect to take during a hot summer day, because most of the time it is in the shade. We will be shaded by yellowwood, assegaaibos, milkwood, wild peach, red alder, and other indigenous trees. The path winds its way through beautiful ferns. If you do not hike often, it can be strenuous in some parts because of high steps and ladders. We will have a few breaks along the route. Once at the top of Castle Rock (roughly 800m elevation), we will turn towards Table Mountain through the Smuts Track. A beautiful path where we will gain about 350 m elevation and we will have a picnic with stunning views of the False Bay and suburb of Newlands, Hout Bay with Silvermine in the distance. Afterwards, we will reach the highest point of Table Mountain with spectacular view of Table Bay. The path continues for about 40 mins we will reach the upper cable car station and use the cable car to go down. Please notice the following is not included: - Entrance fee to the Botanical Garden is R77 - Ticket for cable car one way is R200. - Taxi fee to be shared
I am passionate about nature, wildlife, and mountains. As a nature and cultural guide, I can delight you with the history, culture, and stories of Cape Town while sharing my knowledge of the country's flora, fauna, geology, and geography. As a mountain guide, I will lead you along routes around the Table Mountain National Park safely. I believe that climbing up a mountain is the best way to know a place, while training your body and relaxing your mind. My objective is to provide the most worthwhile and enriching experience for my guests.
