MEET THE TEAM

All Hike Table Mountain guides are registered with the Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism, and hold accredited qualifications in mountaineering and first-aid.

Table Mountain is our office as well as playground. With almost 100 years’ Table Mountain hiking and climbing experience between us, we’ve seen the mountain in all its moods and facets. We know its nuances and are intimately acquainted with its terrain. Complementing our experience of the mountain is our experience in dealing with people on the mountain combined with our enthusiasm for sharing the mountain with others. Our defining qualities as Mountain Guides include: passion, enthusiasm, attentiveness, patience, competence, empathy, courtesy, friendliness and an easy-going manner.
