Large areas of the Peninsula are either owned or managed by Table Mountain National Park, including The Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point sections.
There are some 800km of footpaths in the Park, much of this is around Table Mountain itself. For those who would rather walk to the top of Table Mountain rather than take the cableway there are several routes to the top, some rated as "easy" with an average time of about two hours. Many hikers take the cable way on the return journey but be aware that it is not always guaranteed as the operation of the cableway is weather dependent and can be closed due to high winds.
Closer to Makapa Lodge there are many fine walks amongst some of the Cape's mountain fynbos (fine bush) vegetation. We would be pleased to arrange a guided walk or put you in direct touch with a local guide who specializes in nature walks in the nearby Silvermine section of the park. These guided walks can be tailored to your available time and fitness level and include a picnic snack.
