Hike up Table Mountain from Kirstenbosch gardens
One of the amazing things about Table Mountain is the difference between the different sides of the mountain in terms of scenery and vegetation. The Skeleton Gorge hike from Kirstenbosch gardens to the cable car is one of the best routes for seeing these differences.
The start of the hike takes you through the lush and green lawns of the gardens and on up a gorge lined thickly with indigenous trees and ferns. The rocks are covered in moss and thick vines hang off the trees as you follow a tumbling stream up a steep gorge.
