Det skal I lave

We'll spend the day at the incredible Cape of Good Hope section of the Table Mountain National Park, mostly on foot, where I'll interpret the natural environment as we hike this special corner of the planet!

The day will start with me meeting you bright & early in the city & along the drive we'll pop in at one of my favorite bakeries in Kalk Bay for a takeaway coffee & pastry before passing through Simon's Town where we'll encounter our endangered African Penguins. Continuing southwards we head to Cape Point to really start the outdoor adventure!

Think rugged trails, dramatic mountain peaks, sandy stretches of white sand beach & diverse vegetation (fynbos)...all in relatively quiet spaces.

Large wildlife roams these parts including Eland, Bontebok, Chacma Baboon & Cape Mountain Zebra. We may even get treated to a Cape Clawless Otter sighting along the coast!

Depending on time of year we'll tackle a 3hr mountainous morning hike and a 2.5hr coastal hike during the mid-afternoon.

Between the hikes we'll also walk to a quiet vantage site at Cape Point to look over Dias Beach & the lighthouses and we may see thousands of Cormorants coming & going from nesting sites as we enjoy a picnic lunch.

At the end of the day we'll drive back into Cape Town via Chapman's Peak which will coincide with sunset at certain times of year.

We'll experience the Cape of Good Hope uniquely!
Other things to note
This is a full day experience, where a lot of our time is spent hiking or generally being outdoors with a strong interpretive focus of the natural environment.

Please bring ZAR 320 cash for the National Park gate fee.

Growing up within the boundaries of the incredible Table Mountain National Park I had the mountains of Silvermine as my literal backyard. This is where my love for the Table Mountain range all began!

Fast forward 30 years and today I'm a full-time mountain guide in the Western Cape with professional accreditation by the legal bodies in South Africa after starting out in 2007 as a volunteer guide with school children.

Sharing my love for nature by leading interpretive nature trails & adventurous hikes across the fynbos covered mountains of the Cape allows me to live out my passion daily.

Her skal du være

We drive the Cape Peninsula, passing through coastal towns of Kalk Bay & Simon's Town for coffee & responsibly encountering our endangered African Penguins.

Our main aim is to get hiking at the Cape of Good Hope, immersing ourselves in the Cape Floral Kingdoms’ incredible flora. We'll also walk to my favorite spot to absorb the drama of Cape Point & Dias Beach for an environmentally conscious picnic lunch away from the masses.

Justin was absolutely incredible. I knew we’d have a great time just by his communication via Airbnb but then finally meeting him and having him take us around Cape Town and the Cape of Good Hope - showing us the area from his POV and having such immense knowledge about the Cape of Good Hope left me taken away. This was one the best parts of our trip and I know a memory that will last a lifetime. We came to Cape Town for our honeymoon and booking Justin was really the smartest and best decisions we made. His hospitality and kindness will never be forgotten.

Hands down one of the best days of our lives. This hike is a must see for anyone visiting Cape Town. Justin is incredibly knowledgeable and gifts you with a new appreciation for flora and fauna. The sights were breathtaking, as were the animal encounters we had the pleasure of experiencing. I can’t say enough good things about this activity!!!

Wow! Our day at Cape Point was fabulous! Justin is incredibly knowledgeable and turned what we thought would be just a fun hike into an educational and immersive experience. We are still sharing bits and pieces of info we learned. Justin loves what he does and it shows. He was also very flexible - allowing us to change times and hike paths to suit our group which ranged from 14 to 76 years old.

We had an amazing day exploring the Cape with Justin. His knowledge and passion for the area is unmatched and he took us on some magical and majestic hikes. It was an incredibly unique way to experience the Cape of Good Hope, Cape Point and Table Mountain Reserve. We loved every minute of it.

Just do it! I read in one of the previous review urging anyone interested to just go on this trip with Justin and I promise you, just do it! I did this trip down to Cape Town on my own and spent a whole day with Justin and the day came to an end all too quickly! Every activity of the day was well thought out and although I spent the whole day with Justin, there was still time for me to enjoy each moments on my own. Justin has such an extensive knowledge I literally felt as if I should have carried a notepad and pen! I could literally go on and on with my praise on Justin but you genuinely want to experience explore this with him as your guide! Only FYI there is an additional cost to enter Cape of Good Hope which I could have just missed it in the details so just keep that in mind 🥳 Enjoy and jealous of everyone’s experience with Justin in advance!
