Trip Planner: Africa / South Africa / Western Cape / Cape Town / Table Mountain National Park / Cape Trekking
Cape Trekking allows visitors to discover the wilderness on Cape Town's doorstep, including Table Mountain and Cape Point Nature Reserve. While many tourists choose to drive to Cape Point, hiking the reserve provides a chance to see beyond the car window. The area's natural scenery and abundance of wildlife are best discovered on foot--a morning hike can get you close to the grazing families of bontebok, eland, and ostriches. You can also take full- or half-day hikes up to Table Mountain, one of the most photographed natural landmarks in the country.
