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.
- 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.
