Multi day hiking on Table Mountain
Please note that the full 5 day trail is no longer available due to fire damage to a couple of the huts.
(The trails are all still open but alternative accommodation is required which will mean a transfer daily to the start/end of the trail)
The Table Mountain Chain which stretches from Cape Town to the tip of Cape Point offers some of the most varied and wonderful hiking in the world. One day you can wander along isolated stretches of beach and the next day be on Table Mountain itself with its astounding beauty and views of the city of Cape Town.
The Hoerikwaggo Trail (Hoerikwaggo is the indigenous name for Table Mountain) is a 5 day trail covering 75km with accommodation provided in comfortable tented camps along the route. However you don’t have to do the full trail, you can opt for any number of days or nights you like.
The days are quite long and hard so its also possible to choose easier routes in several areas. I recently finished a 5 day hike with a group of learners from the UK. Due to the recent fires certain section of the standard route are closed but we were still able to 5 days of tough hiking and really enjoy the difference and variety that is available.
