Hike to the summit of Table Mountain, follow the Vlakkenberg Trail and climb to the summit of Swartkop, watch penguins on the beach in Simon's Town, walk among the rocky landscape of Cape Point National Park

Sure, you could see South Africa from the back of a 4x4 on a safari, but there’s nothing like the feel of Table Mountain under your feet as you hike to the summit. Get your sweat on as you take the short, challenging hike up the mountain before continuing down into Cape Point National Park, enjoying the great views and variety of landscapes across South Africa. You’ll have the chance to immerse yourself in local village culture along the way, as well as visiting the African penguin sanctuary.
