We arrived at Orange Kloof Tented Camp on a Sunday afternoon for a 2 night stay. There were no one from SANParks to greet us (although we confirmed arrival time). We found the whole campsite (including ALL the accommodation and communal areas) occupied by a group of people preparing for a bachelorette party. After contacting the local parks office we... More

I booked overnight accommodation @ Orangekloof tented camp and attempted the walk from the cable car station. The route is not well indicated - we struggled to find the camp. Although it is beautiful, it was difficult to know where we are and we only found the camp much much later than expected. The maps they sell at the shop... More

We did an adapted version of the Hoerikwaggo trail due to of recent fires in the area, the Silvermine Camp has burnt down and certain areas of the mountain are restricted for regeneration. The hike itself is spectacular! we didn't take a guide but the paths were all very well marked and the route is amazing. Smitswinkel camp is lovey,... More

I just enjoyed one of the most glorious 4 day treks of my extensive walking life: the Hoerikwaggo Table Mountain Trail (Feb '15), a trek in an urban national park South of Capetown, thanks to the superb guiding of Dominic Chadbon, accredited TM guide. He possessed an inexhaustible knowledge about the flora, fauna, history and geology of the Fynbos and... More

The Overseers cottage is part of the Hoerikwaggo trail. The cottage is in the most stunning position with incredible views and scenery. Renting the cottage for 24 people cost R5600 for the night, and for the price would have expected the cottage to be well maintained. Upon arrival we found the oven door broken and hanging loose - according to... More

Wonderful two days spent with expert duo Frank and Ray from Slackpacker SA/Platteklip Tours & Trails. We ascended via Nursery Ravine, hiked across to Kasteelpoort and stopped for the night at Overseers Cottage. Nature didn't disappoint, a pity that Sanparks couldn't resolve the water problem at the cottage which resulted in us having no running water for the duration of... More

Been a few times up there in the summer, but never expected such a flower show in the winter. The summer visit was interesting and various species was seen (it is quite hot), but after getting some winter rains, it become a flower show with the most beautiful small wild flowers every-where. Normally it is just all brown in the... More

A fantastic way to see the mountain and the surrounding areas. The trail is broken up into sections and some are tougher than others - like the hike up the back of Table Mountain but it is SO worth it.

Did a 3 day walking trail - absolutely amazing. Luxurious accommodation - you don't even carry your own bag - they cook for you and plenty surprises on top of Table Mountain. Book well in advance
