Your guide will pick you up at 07:30 and escort you to the start of the trail in the beautiful Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, which are scattered with thousands of indigenous plants. Hike up the densely forested Skeleton gorge, stopping along the way to admire the views over the peninsula and leafy southern suburbs. Expect a small amount of climbing over boulders and up ladders. Once at the top, you will walk towards Maclears Beacon, which, at 1087 metres, is the highest point on Table Mountain. Take in the impressive views on your way to the cable station where you can opt to catch a lift down with the cable car (for own account).
