Table Mountain - Twelve Apostles

We start lower down on Table Mountain, just above the suburb of Camps Bay on the western side. A contour path takes us around the lower buttresses of the Twelve Apostles to Kasteelspoort gorge. We then climb up, stopping to take in the beautiful views of the Atlantic coast and up to Lion's Head and Robben Island. After topping out we turn north and head up to the Table top itself for views out over the city. We then take the Cable Car down.

Another option is to avoid the crowds and stay on the Twelve Apostles and explore the Back Table more - hike a combination of either Kasteelspoort, Diagonal, Woody Ravine or Corridor Ravine.


If you're looking for an easier option, then we can stay on the Pipe Track and follow the history of water supply to Cape Town, while exploring the lower slopes of the mountain.
