One of your experienced guides will meet you at the designated meeting spot (see link for exact location). There are quite a few exciting routes up, far from the hustle and bustle of the main route. Therefore, depending on how adventurous the group feels, we can tailor the route. 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 and enjoyed a gourmet picnic on secluded secret spot.

We recommend taking a taxi/Uber to the meeting spot. However, if you do have a car, parking during peak times can sometimes be limited.

Get Directions

Have questions? Here's the most frequently asked.

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.

Are bathrooms available during the tour?

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

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!
