Cape Town offers everything expected from a modern city; fine cuisine, art, music and theatre, historic architecture and cultural diversity. But few visitors have the opportunity to explore the city’s wild side. Here, you will find some of the country’s most scenic, accessible hiking within easy reach of the best 5-star hotels.

Combine sightseeing of the iconic landmarks with hiking away from the busy trails and experience Cape Town’s true essence. While these are our chosen routes, we will, of course adapt them to varying levels of fitness and experience.

Chris and Jacqui

Chris dedicates his life to having as much fun as possible. After 13 long years in the commercial catering industry, Chris realized that he had forgotten how to breathe. So in 2001, armed with a desire to enjoy his working hours, he took a deep breath and walked out of the office. Now, as he pounds the ground on a trail run, climbs a rock face, or rides a bicycle, Chris enjoys every breath. As a result, he constantly inspires travelers on his tours with his energy, enthusiasm, and pure enjoyment of life. Chris is a consummate organizer and loves the little operational details that go with managing or overseeing a tour.

After earning a doctorate in molecular biotech, Jacqui served time in the corporate grind of big pharma before discovering tourism. Thanks to 20 years of travel as a guide, tour leader, and trip designer, Jacqui can offer qualified recommendations to the finest destinations and informed insight on experiencing them. Jacqui has a passion for the natural environment and a genuine desire to blend information with experience. This keeps her returning to the road as a guide when not consulting, supporting, or making tea for Active Africans.
