2. Hike Table Mountain, On The Skeleton Gorge Route.

Skeleton Gorge is for sure one of the more fun things to do in Cape Town, on a hot summer’s day. Most of the route is shaded by tall indigenous jungle forest, so theres loads of protection from the scorching sun lurking above.

Whats even more awesome about this route, is once you reach the top at about 1086 m above sea level, there is large natural water catchment area waiting for you, perfect to cool off in! The hike will take you 4 – 6 hours, thus it does require a reasonable amount of fitness.

If you’d like a guide to accompany you up this breathtaking route, (pun intended) search no further than, Hike Addicts.
