Cape Town has a variety of rambles and hikes but I chose a mountain hike with spectacular views to the summit of Table Mountain with a local guide to keep me company.
I started my hike from the other side of Table Mountain, at the Kirstenbosch Gardens to climb Skeleton Gorge. My route passed the top of the Platteklip Gorge so it was nice to watch another hiker coming up to the summit plateau on that popular route. I did pass Maclear’s Beacon which is actually 21 metres higher than the Upper Cableway Station.
