Me and two others in our group recently took the India Venster route up with Hendre as our guide. She was absolutely fantastic, very chatty and kept us entertained the whole way up. I can highly recommend the India Venster route, it is steep and...More

My friend and I booked with Hike Table Mountain to do a hike up Platteklip Gorge, and we had a wonderful day. Our guide was experienced and top notch. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone!

We hiked our way up using the Platteklip Gorge trail. While it was very exhausting we made it in 2h. I would recommend hiking up in the morning and walking around the top in the afternoon. After that you can take the cable car down...More

I am interested in hiking Indian Venster with my boyfriend when we get to Cape Town in a couple weeks. I am wondering how necessary it is to get a guide. I would like to avoid spending the extra money if it's doable for two people on their own. Thanks!

Hi Casey. I strongly recommend a guide for India Venster, as the route involves scrambling and exposure to heights.
