A Table Mountain classic, Skeleton Gorge is definitely the most sheltered and is an absolute favorite trail for locals and tourists alike.
We meet at your accommodation and shuttle to the beautiful Kirstenbosch Gardens (official starting point).
We head through the highly acclaimed gardens of Kirstenbosch, giving you a taste of its unique flora including the more recently built Canopy Walkway. We leave the open space of the gardens and head up Skeleton Gorge on the lush eastern side of Table Mountain, offering a jungle setting and inland views. The path steepens gradually as you ascend, leading to a fun ladder section as we continue up the rocky ravine. The forest walk is shady and the distraction of beautiful flora and fauna makes the ascent that much easier. At the top of the ravine a short detour along the way leads to a ‘beach’ at the historic Table Mountain reservoirs.
Whiles reaching the highest point of the mountain, Maclear’s Beacon (1065m), the views open up to take in Table Bay and Robben Island. we then tackle the easiest section that meanders towards the Upper Cable Car station.
The cable car down is an unforgettable experience as the car rotates and you enjoy 360-degree views. We conclude the tour with a transfer back to your hotel.
