My husband, mom-in-law and I were in Cape Town, South Africa last week. We hiked the Platteklip Gorge with Robin Kayser. Robin is a fantastic guide. I echo the other reviews here in that he brought the mountain alive by explaining a great deal about the plants and animals of the region. Also, Robin has a kind spirit; it was... More

We recently climbed Table Mt via the Skeleton Gorge track. This is roughly - depending on how young and how fit you are - a 4 hr climb. Enter through the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens; make sure you get a map. It is a much more pleasant climb than the Platteklip Gorge route, far prettier, with less tourists. Take plenty of... More

Throughout the day Robin seems to know what we wanted and found a beautiful track. He tells us a lot about flora and fauna, history and geologie. At the top... More

Walking up Table Mountain was very high on our wish list and we were lucky enough to be put in touch with Robin Kayser (robinkayser7@yahoo.com) who kindly agreed to be our guide. We met Robin at 7:00am in the botanical gardens which was... More

I visited Table Mountain last month and would like to highly recomend the 1/2 day hike with Margaret from Table Mountain Walks. Margaret was so informative both with the area, all ponts of interest and the flora and fauna. Every question was answered and it was a sensational day with the hike and the views. Well worth the visit and... More
