Table Mountain Overnight Trail

Overnight on Table Mountain

Wake up on Table Mountain!!! Restore your energies - re balance body, mind and soul - relax and unwind... Enjoy an overnight getaway on the iconic Table Mountain.

Be surrounded by beautiful fynbos, valleys, mountain streams and exquisite views of the Mother City.

We hike up Table Mountain to reach the highest point (Maclears Beacon), where we enjoy lunch overlooking Cape Town City Centre and some historical landmarks; Table Bay and Robben Island; the Cape Flats; False Bay; the Twelve Apostles (peaks) and Camps Bay. The vista also includes views of Lion's Head and Devil's Peak nearby with the imposing spires of the Drakenstein Mountains in the distance. 

From here we have a gentle walk to the historic reservoirs and visit the Waterwoks Museum on the back table. Our resting place is nearby overlooking Kirstenbosch and Southern Suburbs. Unwind and enjoy a barbeque (braai) with the city at your feet and the stars as your canopy. Absorb the tranquil atmosphere and breathe in the fresh mountain air.

The accommodation is a fully equipped cottage with all necessary facilities. In the morning we hike down Skeleton Gorge where the fynbos gradually gives way to magical lush indigenous forests which provide ample shade.

This route takes us down into Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens renowned for its spectacular array of indigenous plants. Take time to enjoy your surrounds before heading back to your hotel.
