Cape Town: Platteklip Gorge Half-Day Hike

What to Expect

This is a personalised small group tour where you will be collected from your accommodation with the Cape Town City Bowl or immediate surrounds by our guide and taken to the start of the hike.  

This is definitely one of the more popular paths to the top of Table Mountain. The views of the City are spectacular including views of Lions Head, Signal hill, Devils Peak and Robben Island. It is a strenuous hike but a safe route taking between 2-3 hours. 

This hike can be extended to include a meander across the Table Top to Maclears Beacon in a circular route which would take an extra 1 – 2 hours. It is definitely worth it, with views of False Bay and surrounding mountains heading towards Cape Point.

After you’ve had your fill of all the incredible views, you’ll head back down the mountain on the Cableway. Your guide will return you to your accommodation in the Cape Town City Bowl or immediate surrounds.

Duration: 3 hours

Location: OTC Adventures, Cape Town Central 7800 South Africa
