Walk or Climb to the top of Table Mountain
Climb or walk to the top of Table Mountain, Cape Town’s famous icon. The views from the top are simply stunning and make it all worth while. There are some 350 recognised paths to the summit, some undemanding and some are extremely difficult. It is not advisable to climb the mountain without someone experienced who knows the route well. One of the most popular routes to the top is to start off at Kirstenbosch and walk up either Nursery Ravine or Skeleton Gorge. These trails demand a minimal level of fitness – the top can normally be reached in about 6 hours. Visitors should always contact the Mountain Club of South Africa before embarking on a hike or climb. Contact: 021 465-3412.

Tucked away in the corner of upmarket Camps Bay nearest to Sea Point, Glen Beach is one of the most established surf spots in Cape Town. It has seen several generations of surf rats suit up on the concrete walkway there. A hollow righthander that breaks on sand, just off the rocks. Many of South Africa’s top surfers were, or are, locals here. It’s a shortish ride, but can deliver superlative form when the banks and conditions are right. Works best at 2-5′ and is a bit more sheltered from the South easter gales that howl from the Twelve Apostles mountain range above. Source: Wavescape.
