South Africa holidays
Combine your hike up this iconic landmark with an overnight stay in a comfortable stone cottage with spectacular views over the Cape Flats to False Bay. Start this morning with a private guided tour of Kirstenbosch before ascending the mountain. You will be provided with a lunch pack while your overnight bag will be transferred separately. Make your way up Skeleton Gorge to the summit, taking in the sweeping views over the Cape Flats towards the Hottentots Holland Mountains. At the top, enjoy a hot shower and a traditional braai or potjie dinner around the fire, before heading to bed. Awake to the sunrise and enjoy a continental breakfast before setting out to the Waterworks Museum. Cross the top of the mountain, passing the magnificent storage dams built in the late 1800s to help supply Cape Town with water. Enjoy your packed lunch en route before heading to the cable car station where you will descend to meet your luggage and driver at the base of the mountain.
