What clients are saying...
We hiked Table Mountain with Hendré while visiting Cape Town, and we had a great time!!! The hike itself was an awesome experience. We did the India Venster route, and it was even better than expected. It was a great feeling after making it to the top and looking down to see what we had climbed to get to the top. They had recommended this route for us, and it was my first time scrambling. Through the entire hike, Hendré did a great job of guiding us and safely getting us to the top.


I just wanted to thank you again for being a great guide for us on the climb on Saturday – we had a great time! I'll definitely recommend you to anyone looking to do a climb.
