Cape Ascents is a sole owner operated mountain guide service and offers hiking and climbing excursions throughout the Cape Peninsula.

Privately guided tours ensure you get the most from your experience, whether mountain hiking, scrambling or climbing.

Depending on your needs, skills, fitness and experience your expectations can be met with a tailored hike, scramble or climb. Your guide is experienced and qualified with sound knowledge of the environment and the flora. Exposed and scrambling sections (use of hands and feet) along most of the routes are par for the course. Safety is paramount and you will be assisted at these sections. A good head for heights is needed as majority of the routes to summit are steep and rocky.

Enquiries can be made regarding wild orchid hikes. Wild orchids flower at different times of the year and grow at various altitudes which make the reward of sighting them in the wild very rewarding for those willing to make the effort finding them.

We offer hikes, scrambles and climbs as full or half day excursions on either Table Mountain, the surrounding Peninsula and other nearby wilderness areas in Western Cape including the Cederberg which will normally include an overnight stay.

Cape Ascents follow the most adventurous routes ensuring the road less travelled or scrambling off the beaten track.

Take the scenic route with Cape Ascents to ensure your Cape Peninsula hiking experience is a memorable one.
