Customer Reviews

This guided trek was nothing short of amazing - Fatima was utterly brilliant and made the whole experience so much fun and adventurous. I would use this company again in a heartbeat! - Poppy Kettlewell

We took the India Venster route in Jan 2020. The weather was unfortunately not ideal with wind and clouds at the summit. However, we had an amazing time and still got to see fantastic views all the way up. If anything the wind made the route feel more exhilarating. Lance was on hand to help us feel safe, and to give us interesting facts about the mountain geology and wildlife. The cable car was not in use for the way back however this meant we got to see more spectacular views on the way back down. We would highly recommend this hike. - Jessicarr Moorhouse

I had an amazing sunrise hike with Lance. Besides the scenery, it was very interesting to learn more about Table mountain and South African culture. It was a great experience I would recommend for everyone. Milan Smets - Milan Smets
