About this Hike

Table Mountain a thrilling hike with a number of rocky steps.

The path Table Mountain via Kasteel Poort was constructed to service a pipeline below the series of peaks known as the Twelve Apostles. The pipeline was built to carry water from Table Mountain’s to the Molteno Reservoir in Oranjezicht. The hike offers incredible views of Camps Bay and the deep blue Atlantic Ocean. The hike is challenging and showcases the diverse landscapes and rich biodiversity of Table Mountain. This lesser-know trail offers a more secluded therefore tranquil experience away from the crowds.

The hike start in between Table Mountain and Lion’s Head. The trail takes a flat sweep above Camps Bay and along the twelve Apostle Mountain range. After an hour walk we will see a sign pointing up Kasteel Poort. Until now the hike was flat and gentle but suddenly the route becomes steeper with a steady climb all the way to the top of the gorge. Keep an eye out for the old cable car ruins and the diving board. A piece of rock that juts out, offering as a matter of fact awesome photo opportunities. The path take us then through a series of valleys and a few ladders before arriving at Table Mountain top cable car station. Once you reach the summit, take a moment to savor the breathtaking views and soak in the accomplishment of conquering Table Mountain.

Without a doubt having a tourist guide is part of safety precautions as well as checking the weather conditions, having the appropriate clothing and a good hydration. To conclude Kasteel Poort hike is an unforgettable adventure that will leave you with memories to last a lifetime. Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity to explore one of the most iconic natural wonders of South Africa!
