My husband, mom-in-law and I were in Cape Town, South Africa last week. We hiked the Platteklip Gorge with Robin Kayser. Robin is a fantastic guide. I echo the other reviews here in that he brought the mountain alive by explaining a great deal about the plants and animals of the region. Also, Robin has a kind spirit; it was... More

We recently climbed Table Mt via the Skeleton Gorge track. This is roughly - depending on how young and how fit you are - a 4 hr climb. Enter through the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens; make sure you get a map. It is a much more pleasant climb than the Platteklip Gorge route, far prettier, with less tourists. Take plenty of... More

We stayed in Cape Town for two nights as part of a whistle-stop tour of South Africa. Walking up Table Mountain was very high on our wish list and we were lucky enough to be put in touch with Robin Kayser (robinkayser7@yahoo.com) who kindly agreed to be our guide. We met Robin at 7:00am in the botanical gardens which was... More
