Guided Hike - Mowbray Ridge


| /

The hike everyone should do, but don't. Our recommended (short) hike! If you like a bit of scrambling, a bit of cardio, and fewer crowds, join us for this adventurous hike. We specialise in private hikes (just you/your party) to maximise your enjoyment and success - enjoy your pace and your comfort level without others.

  • Grade: B
  • Duration: 5-6 hours

Mowbray Ridge – The iconic skyline ridge of Devil’s Peak (1000 m). Offering spectacular views of two oceans and the vast Cape Flats, Robben Island and with the Hottentots Holland Mountains in the distance. The City Bowl is right below. The challenges are limited to moderately exposed scrambling and a good path. We return to the base via the indigenous Newlands Forest. This is an absolute must on your list of iconic hikes to do while in Cape Town.

We start and finish at Rhodes Memorial.
