India Venster Hike

from R800 per adventurer

India Venster is one of the most beautiful and exciting hiking routes up Table Mountain and offers the most spectacular views of the Atlantic seaboard. The trail gets its name from the shape of the ravine situated between two large rock walls, shaped like the Indian subcontinent. The hike zig-zags under the cableway for most of the way and starts off relatively easy following a fair amount of scrambling and climbing, and exposure to heights. If you are looking for a really fun route up Table Mountain that is off the beaten track and are not afraid of heights, then the India Venster route is the one for you.

At the summit you will enjoy a 360° panoramic view of Cape Town's City Bowl, Table Bay and the Atlantic Seaboard with its flashy neighbourhoods of Clifton and Camps Bay.

  • Krom River Hike

    from R900 per adventurer

    The Krom River Hike is one of the most scenic hiking trails in the Limietberg Nature Reserve. There are several opportunities to swim in river pools in the shade of indigenous riverine vegetation, and the surroundings is spectacular. There are a couple sets of pools, 'first pools' are not far into the hike and the second set of pools lie at the base of the ascent to the waterfall. But before you reach them, you pass through a wonderful area of indigenous forest. A climb up to the falls is optional and those who don't enjoy chain ladders or are merely content to enjoy a picnic lunch whilst waiting for others to enjoy the ascent, may rest. This is a circular route and ends at the start of the trail.

    from R800 per adventurer

    Platteklip Gorge is the shortest route straight up to the summit. Probably the most popular route as it is clearly visible and the path follows underneath the cable car.
