Christmas can be a busy time on Table Mountain. It is therefore best if you arrive at the cableway upper station before 10.30a.m. to avoid the queue to descend. It is also a hotter time of the year and if you wish to avoid the heat you must start early, no later than 6.00a.m. is recommended.
We operate 360 days a year and we do have availability over this normally very busy time period. However due to travel restrictions we haven’t anything like the number of bookings we would expect to have. If you wish to book a guided hike up Table Mountain I am confident we can accommodate you, even if it is last minute.
Even at this time of the year the weather conditions on Table Mountain can change quickly. What was a very distinct trail can become more difficult to navigate when the cloud descends. It is also a windy time of the year so the choice to cancel or proceed with the hike is made by us with your ability and safety taken into consideration.
So please don’t hesitate to contact us if you are thinking about hiking up Table Mountain. It may look like a walk in the park – but it isn’t! Table Mountain Walks is happy to advise you on any aspect of your planned hike, be it with or without a guide.
