Table Mountain

Ascend Table Mountain via Skeleton Gorge

The Gorge is actually a ravine, and ascends steeply up the eastern side of Table Mountain. A well maintained path following the left side of the stream and is in shade nearly all the way to the top. At about half way up (45min) there are a series of 5 short wooden ladders. For a short distance the path is in the streambed that requires scrambling over rocks and boulders, (this section can be very wet and slippery in winter and shoes with non-slip soles are essential) after you reach the gabion (a stone wall covered with metal mesh to hold it together).

Lion's Head Half Day Tour

When you face Table Mountain, Lions Head is the small peak on the right and Devils Peak is the larger peak on the left.

Start on a steep gravel service road that changes into a mountain path after about 20min walk. A spiral path winds its way around the "Lions Head” gaining height at a gentle pace. At the rock face chain handrails, metal handles and ladders are in place to assist you as you scramble up this particularly steep section. There is a route for the adventurous and an alternate route for the not so adventurous. Return via the same route.

Ascend Table Mountain via Kasteelpoort

Kasteelspoort if translated into English means Castle Gateway. Our tour route starts at Theresa Drive in Camps Bay, where we start off on a cement path with a beautiful view of the Twelve Apostles ahead. We cross the Pipe Track which then meets the Kasteelspoort route (309m/1013ft). The path climbs steadily upwards and is not very strenuous. There are some easy ledges to navigate along the way.

Devil's Peak Half Day Tour

When you look towards Table Mountain, Lions Head is the small peak on the right and Devils Peak is the larger peak on the left.

The route starts at Tafelberg Road at the Saddle Path. A gradual walk up with switch- backs (zig-zags) up to Breakfast rock that is situated in the Saddle between Table Mountain and Devils Peak. From here the route is fairly steep to a second saddle where we swing right for the last steep haul to reach the top. From each of the three survey beacons the views are different. Well worth the effort! Descend via the same route or via an alternative route.
