Maclears Beacon Loop

Comments Off on Maclears Beacon Loop

A hike for those who don’t like any of the uphill or downhill parts of hiking, this one is a flat walk with excellent views and amazing photo opportunities. This is a great route for those who are interested in hearing all the information about Cape Town and the fynbos while getting extraordinary views. You’ll take the cable car up and down. Once on top, you’ll walk along to get amazing views of the backside of Table Mountain including the Hely-Hutchison reservior and the rest of the Cape Peninsula on a clear day. It takes about an hour to reach the highest point on Table Mountain, Maclears Beacon at 1085m. From here you’ll take in the sights and head around to the front side of the loop back to the Cableway. This side offers spectacular views of Cape Town below, Devils Peak, Lions Head, the West Coast and the Winelands.

One reason to choose this hike: You want the amazing views and photos but don’t want to do anything strenuous to get them.

Time: +/-3 hours hiking (+/-5 hours door to door as Cableway can take time)

Cost: R800 per person (+R500 for the group to have a privately guided hike or +R500 single supplement if applicable). Rates valid until August 31, 2018.

Included: Pick up and drop off from your accommodation in Cape Town’s City Centre and Atlantic Seaboard areas.

Excluded: Roundtrip Cableway fee (R290 per person)
