Table Mountain offers the full range of walking, scrambling and climbing routes, from easy strolls to steep, demanding rock climbs, all within easy reach of the cosmopolitan city centre. The entire mountain chain spans the length of the Cape Peninsula offering a wealth of hiking routes in pristine fynbos with spectacular sea views in all directions.

One of the 7 New Natural Wonders of the World, and home to the diverse Fynbos floral kingdom, the Table Mountain range is a mind-bogglingly beautiful environment to explore. Originally known as Hoerikwaggo, the mountain in the sea, this monumental wonder rises to 1087 metres above sea level, with its northern face creating a majestic backdrop to Cape Town, one of the most loved cities on Earth. It has been around for over 500 million years, making it one of the oldest mountains on our planet.
