WELCOME TO CAPE HIKER

Bringing you the finest Table Mountain hiking experiences

Hiking India Venster

"The world reveals itself to those who travel on foot”
– Werner Herzog

Having spent many happy years guiding hikers in the Drakensberg mountains of KwaZulu Natal, I have now turned my attention - and passion - to scaling the heights of the Cape.  I invite you to experience the magic of the mountains through my private guided hikes around Cape Town, where I specialise in the trails of Table Mountain National Park. On offer are a variety of routes and adventures for all ages and abilities, all of which are led by me, a fully qualified wilderness first responder medic and and registered mountain guide.

 

A trained plant pathologist, I take particular pleasure in sharing my knowledge of flora and fauna with my clients. I believe in taking nothing from the mountain except memories (and photographs!) so if you want a memorable mountain experience, book a hike with me, Geoff Tennant, at Cape Hiker today.

“Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt”
                                                                                 – John Muir

"Hiking Table Mountain was an awe-inspiring journey that left me in absolute wonder of nature's grandeur. With each step, I felt more connected to the earth and invigorated by the challenge. The panoramic views from the summit were simply breathtaking, making every ounce of effort worthwhile. It's an experience I'll cherish forever with Geoff and his team.
