  • Cape Town: India Venster Half-Day Hike

    10. Cape Town: India Venster Half-Day Hike

    Starting near to the lower cable car station, this hike will take 3-4 hours to the top. Look out for indigenous flora, like the King Protea, wander at the spectacular rock formations, like the India Venster (“Window” in Afrikaans) and witness views as far as the eye can see, taking in Robben Island and the whole of Table Bay. False Bay and surrounding mountains are also visible from the top. If this is all the hike you need then a cable car ride down to the bottom can be done at this point.

    I had a wonderful time doing the hike. Cliff from OTC is an accomplished, fantastic guide with a main concern about safety of the hikers. He took good care of me, showed the tricky areas of the trail, and the day was a perfect hiking activity full of beautiful, wonderful views from the marvellous city of Cape Town. I plan to return to South Africa, and definitely I plan to do the hiking again along with some friends; but definitely I would book the hiking tour with GET YOUR GUIDE but I would request Cliff as our guide. He is synonym of safety and enjoyment during the activity. Thank you Get Your Guide and Cliff from OTC for such delightful day of hiking.
