CAPE TOWN HIKES

If you have only 1 day in Cape Town, come on a guided hike up table mountain – the views are stupendous. If you have a a second day, let us show you the beauty of hiking at Cape Point, but if you have a the luxury of time, join us for overnight hiking on the Cape Peninsular Explore.

We had a great time today; our thanks to Garth for guiding us. Both the canoeing and the walk were just what we hoped for. The Goukamma beach is amazing… and we come from a part of the world with some wonderful beaches, so the bar is set high!

Thank you Garth for taking Peter and I on such a fantastic walk at the beginning of March around the Robberg peninsular. We had a fantastic experience walking with you and have very good memories of your beautiful country and welcome and hospitality we received. We keep looking at our photos – Peter especially all the videos of the sea crashing in to remind us how fantastic it was.

Many thanks Garth for your fantastic arrangement! Leanne and me got a marvelous experience. The only part I feel regret is we couldn’t stay longer there and have more fun together! Wholehearted recommendation from Hong Kong!

Just finished the Tsitsikamma Trail with Garth – had a wonderful time with a great bunch of people. Garth knew his stuff and led us on a great hike in a stunning location. I was sad when it ended! Would definitely recommend

The trip was great. Drakensburg is a beautiful area and we were lucky to get some exceptionally beautiful mornings! I had very little expectations going in (just didn’t know what to expect), and I had a great time! The meals were super tasty! Otto did an a amazing job at bringing delicious and healthy meals on the trip. Very well fed!

The trip exceeded all expectations. It is clear that Garth knows the area very well and loves what he does.  He taught us so much about trekking & South Africa.

The meals were way beyond my expectation for a backpacking trip.  Garth prepared meals that were delicious &  made our fellow hikers jealous. We cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed our time.  As difficult as the Otter trail was, I always felt safe with Garth.  We have been singing praises to everyone we know.  As soon as we can return to South Africa, we know we want to book another trip with your company.
