Get in touch with us to start planning your visit to the most iconic trails of Table Mountain and beyond.
We’ll work with you to find a route that suits your abilities and your schedule. We know you’re trying to see and do as much as you can while you’re here.
All of our guides are excellent humans and are passionate about sharing this experience with others. Our guides are friendly, flexible, have a wealth of knowledge and truly LOVE what they do so you can relax and feel the connection to this land, time and space.
Pairing you with the right guide can enhance your experience tenfold and we want you to have the BEST experience possible. Let us know if you have any special interests (in anything at all). Because it’s all about making the day the best it can be, for you.
Our guides have fulfilled the requirements for a Skills Program in Tourism Guiding (Adventure Guiding/Mountaineering) with electives in Mountain Walking and Overnight on Trail in the Western Cape, as recognized by the Culture, Art, Tourism, Hospitality, and Sport Sector Education and Training Authority (CASSTHETA), and are Wilderness First Aid Level 3 Responders.
Let us know if you want to book a more conscious, regenerative and relaxing experience out in nature.
We understand the benefits being in nature has on balancing the health of a person’s whole being. We will get to know exactly what it is you are looking for, give you options and really ensure you are well taken care of to get the replenishment you deserve.
We offer Multiday Hiking Retreats throughout year. Get in touch if you’d like more info.
What’s in our name? Why is Cape Town called ‘the Mother City’? In typical Cape Town fashion, it turns out the answer is not as clear as one might hope. See below a handful of reasons…
Mother City Hikers practices minimum impact outdoor ethics in recognition of and respect for the land, water, plants, and animals that surround us, as well as all people – those here now, as well as those who walked this earth before us. Our goal is to ensure that our clients have a safe, enjoyable, and unforgettable experience on the mountain, all while connecting with and soaking up the beauty of the natural world that surrounds us.
We’re happy to communicate via email / Whatsapp or schedule a quick call to figure out what might be best for you.
We donate to these NGOs as they take the time to do something we are very passionate about.
Friends of the Rivers of Hout Bay is dedicated to the restoration and conservation of our river
The Earthchild Project offers opportunities for children to get out in nature and teaches them the
importance of connection to self, to the Earth and each other.
Thank you for choosing us. A portion from every hike you book is donated to the above NGOs.
