Table Mountain Hike - Platteklip Gorge
- About 4 hours
The oldest, most direct, most popular way up the mountain. It is not a technical route (no scrambling or heights). It takes you up the north face of Table Mountain with views over the city and Devil’s Peak the whole way up. It is a steep climb, but is relatively straightforward.
Perfect way to explore the mountain if pressed for time.
Hike takes approximately 2-3 hours and finishes with the option of doing the Table Mountain Abseil.

I didn't abseil but I meet some of the crew at the Berg River Dam. They were setting up for the Bastille Day trail run. 5 stars as they had a bag and were picking up litter...some of it pretty gross. Well done, guys.
This is just amazing. You can abseil from the table mountain and you got an amazing view. But also you can go to a Kamikaze Canyon tour which is incredible. You can jump of a 22 meter high cliff into the water up. in the mountains. The guides are very professional! A lot of fun.
Absolute Amazing Experience on one of the new 7 wonders of the world, no better place to do this than with Abseil Africa on top of table mountain, the views are amazing, the experience is unbeatable and the staff really have got your back from the very beginning until the end. We was late arriving due to a long unexpected hike up to the top but we contacted the team who was very professional and friendly from the moment we made the booking, they contacted us via whatsapp which i preferred. Would highly recommend this to all who are visiting cape town.. Plans changed and the Abseil Africa team was more than accommodating this is a team who have got their act together and truly do focus on their customers experiences.
Amazing experience with friendly staff that took a few photos and a video as I descended down. Although I wasn’t a complete novice, they explained everything very clearly & concisely making the entire process enjoyable. The trek back up was wasn’t too bad either and just can’t get over the gorgeous view!
