One of your experienced guides will meet you at the designated meeting spot (which will be confirmed a day before the adventure starts based on weather conditions).  Depending on how adventurous the group feels, we can tailor the route during the adventure.

As mentioned, we always put safety first, so the guide will assess the fitness levels of the group and ensure that everybody gets to the top safely. We will stop for photo opportunities and rest whenever necessary. Once we summit, we will enjoy the views, have another rest and then head back making use of the cable car or walking down another route if the energy levels are still kicking high.

Please note: cable car tickets for Table Mountain are not included in the price and is an additional R200 per person going down (this is only applicable for Table Mountain hikes)

Have questions? Here's the most frequently asked.

What do we do in case of bad weather?

Our experiences are weather dependent. The guides will always check the weather reports and if it is too windy/misty/rainy we will have to cancel the experience. Guests will receive a full refund in that case and hopefully we can reschedule. That’s Cape Town for you… four seasons in one day!

What should I bring with me?

For the hiking experiences, please ensure you wear appropriate footwear. Please do not wear sandals or shoes without grip.  In summer it is essential to wear sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses. In winter, please ensure you layer well and always bring a windbreaker. We can always bring extra gear on loan if necessary, just chat to us beforehand.  We provide water, but you are welcome to bring your own small bottle if necessary.

For the beach/food experiences, comfort is key! It’s a relaxing experience where you will be sitting on the beach – feel free to bring swimwear/towels/sandals. As per above, in summer  it is essential to wear sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses. In winter, please ensure you layer well and always bring windbreaker. We can always bring extra gear on loan if necessary (including snorkeling gear/wetsuits etc)



Are bathrooms available during the tour?

We are mostly in nature, therefore, there are no public toilets available.

Is there parking available?

Parking is available at each tour’s starting location, but we normally recommend taking an Uber/Taxi.

What if I have dietary restrictions or allergies?

Please be sure and let us know if you (or anyone in your group) has a dietary restriction (e.g. vegetarian, vegan, intolerances etc) when you purchase your tickets. As long as we know in advance, we can accommodate your needs.
