Kids hiking on Table Mountain

A hike on Table Mountain is a perfect way to keep the kids entertained during the school holidays

If you are wondering what to do with the kids during the June/July school holidays look no further than Table Mountain. A hike on Table Mountain offers the kids an opportunity to burn off some steam and have a lot of fun, as well as learn about the natural history of the area.

There are a number of different options to choose from depending on the ages of the cjhildren. A full days hike to the dams and waterworks museum offers a great day out for older children. Whatever your age the sight of a steam train on top of the mountain cannot fail to fascinate.

Alternatively a hike up Lions Head offers the excitement of the chains and you can be up and down in half a day.

Another favourite is the steep and challenging Platteklip Gorge. This takes you to the cable car so it is possible to cheat and ride down.

 Or even take the cable car both up and down and enjoy an easy hike to Maclears Beacon. This is a hike fun for even the very young. During the school holidays the cable car has a number of specials available for families, from special prices to treasure hunts to kids meals. Have a look at their site.
