Why Hike With Us
Why Hike With Us
1. Table Mountain is our office as well as our playground.
We’re passionate about the mountain and love sharing it with others.
2. We don’t dabble in mountain guiding.
It’s what we do for a living as well as for play. None of us hold down an office job and then guide on the side.
We guide and then hike and climb on the side.
3. We know Table Mountain like the back of our hand.
Every aspect of it. Its moods, nuances and hidden gems.
We are the only mountain-guiding outfit that offers hikes up all the hiking and scrambling routes on Table Mountain.
This means you get choice as well as the opportunity to explore off-the-beaten track.
4. We focus on Table Mountain.
We specialize in hikes up Table Mountain and purposely refrain from diluting our expertise through the exclusion of other activities and mountains.
5. We’ve guided thousands of people up Table Mountain.
From the easiest route to the most challenging, so we understand your needs in the mountains.
Mountain-guiding is as much about knowing and understanding people as it is about knowing the route and understanding the terrain.
We have extensive experience in the dynamics and subtleties of leading people up mountains.
6. We are qualified and accredited Mountain Guides registered with the relevant organisations.
But having a driver’s license alone doesn’t make you a safe or competent driver: experience is what counts most, and we have plenty.
And not just mountain experience, but mountain-guiding experience; there’s a big difference between the two.
7. We don’t act as middlemen or agents.
We don’t pass on the work to other faceless guides. We do the hikes ourselves.
8. We work hard to set the highest standards possible.
We challenge our industry and ourselves to be better each day.
9. We cater for all levels of fitness and experience.
From rank beginners to veteran trekkers and mountaineers.
10. Our core values include honesty, respect and courtesy.
Our defining qualities: passion, enthusiasm, attentiveness, patience, competence, empathy, friendliness and an easygoing manner.
