Keep safe and enjoy the beautiful and exhilarating climbs the Cape has to offer by hiking with Downhill Adventures.

Routes: Hike up Table Mountain either via Platteklip Gorge or Skeleton Gorge through the beautiful Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. Both require a reasonable level of fitness. Plenty of water, a waterproof jacket and a camera for the incredible views are all highly recommended.

Downhill Adventures complies with the following hiking rules issued by Table Mountain Aerial Cableway:

  • Never climb alone
  • Allow enough time to get up and down in daylight
  • Carry everything in a backpack to keep arms and hands free
  • Stick to well-recognised paths and pay attention to warnings
  • Go with somebody who knows the way; alternatively use a map or guidebook
  • Choose your route according to the ability, fitness and experience of the group
  • Always be prepared for bad weather and take waterproof and windproof clothing
  • Tell someone where you are going, which route you’ll use, and your expected time of return
  • If you get lost or find yourself in an area that looks unsafe, try your best to retrace your steps
  • Always watch the weather and time and turn back as soon as bad weather threatens or if the route is no longer easy to follow
  • Every party should have a leader. Keep together and travel at the pace of the slowest. Never split up or head in different directions
  • Stay put in the event of trouble. Don’t try to force your way down in darkness or mist. Find shelter, especially from the wind (to avoid the risk of hypothermia)
  • One of the most valuable emergency tools you can have these days is your mobile phone. Make sure at least one person in the group has a fully charged phone with sufficient credit
  • It’s also a good idea to have a list of emergency numbers saved
