Hike Table Mountain

“Riaan was an absolutely amazing guide. He made everyone feel extremely safe during scrambling and ensured we all felt good about our hiking tempo. He was very knowledgeable and gave us a ton of interesting facts about the mountain. He was super friendly and funny, ensuring a truly joyful experience. In addition he was very professional, making sure everyone was having a good and safe time throughout the hike. I completely recommend booking a hike with him as you will be in for a guaranteed wonderful experience.”

“Riaan was an amazing guide, leading our group of four up the Llandudno Ravine. We lucked out on a winter’s day and saw nothing but clear skies and miles and miles of blue water. Riaan led us up an 1,800 vertical climb that consisted of scrambling and a few technical, yet manageable sections. An expert on the terrain, he spent time educating us about the mystique of Table Mountain. Regardless of your capability, our group would recommend hiring Riaan as a guide. His expertise helped us learn more about the mountain, Cape Town, and even a little more about ourselves. There’s no question that he is The Table Mountain Man.”

“Riaan is a most professional guide who holds a deeply-intimate knowledge about the mountaineering of Table Mountain. Admirable is his concern for safety matters and his personalised-attention to details to ensure a safe and enjoyable trek up less-travelled routes of the mountain. His knowledge about the history of the mountain and its hiking routes added an important educational element to the trek. This hike was on my bucket-list and Riaan was instrumental in making this trek so memorable for me. My full thanks to Riaan for organising the best possible of days. Riaan comes highly recommended by me.”
