Hiking Course on Table Mountain

Ready to take your hiking to the next level? Keen to get into hiking and mountains, but unsure where to start? We offer full-day hiking courses tailored to your preferences and experience.

The course distils the bewildering amount of mountain-related knowledge into the barebones of what you need to be a safer and better hiker. With the iconic Table Mountain as our classroom, we cover fundamental hiking and mountain skills through practical instruction, keeping things simple and easy to remember.

Topics include:

  • Route-finding
  • Leadership / Group management
  • Mountain weather
  • Mountain sense
  • Dealing with rugged terrain
  • Exposure / Dealing with fear of heights
  • Safety on steep ground (rope work)
  • Scrambling techniques

We focus on single-day hiking, although much of the knowledge can be applied to multi-day trekking. To achieve customized instruction, we keep groups small (maximum 4 people). The course takes the form of a Table Mountain hike. Topics are discussed or demonstrated at appropriate points along the way. Your experience and preferences determine the route.

The course aims to fast-track your competence as a hiker, no matter what your current experience level. To this end, Table Mountain’s rugged and diverse terrain offers an ideal setting. As a bonus, you will also learn about the fascinating fauna, flora, history and geology of the mountain.
