Up early to catch the sunrise, our wonderful guide Liesl led us skilfully up an 8km route from Camps Bay to the top of the mountain. We were part of a small group and Liesl quickly made us all feel at ease. She is an incredibly kind and generous guide, sharing her bountiful knowledge and passion for the mountain as we hiked and scrambled, gently encouraging and supporting the group at every stage. We learnt so much about the history of the mountain, the trails, the incredible flora and eco system and how to avoid the crowds! A truly memorable experience and a must for anyone with a passion for mountains.
