Hike with a guide on Devil's Peak with all the thrills and convenience of Cape Town's famous mountain, but away from the crowds
Devil's Peak, the massif jutting out of Table Mountain, offers unique views of Cape Town from a thousand meters high. That's if you choose to summit. Or skip the final push to the very top, and reach its lovely contour paths, crossing rocky streams and gorges high above the City Bowl where sun-birds hang out in protea groves. With Table Mountain as a dramatic backdrop, you can take brief scrambles to historic vantage points, and caves still used for worship.
Early mornings or late afternoons are best. But this is your bespoke tour, so time and route is up to you. Whichever way, you'll enjoy big sky, wide-angle views up the Cape's west coast, round to False Bay, out to Stellenbosch and the Hottentots-Holland range on the other side of the Cape Flats.
When cloud hangs low, Table Mountain rises out of a sea of white that obliterates any sign of the Mother City spread out below you.
