The Cape of Good Hope evokes immense drama as massive waves carve away at the base of 700 foot high cliffs. It’s a corner of the globe steeped in cultural and maritime history, but even more so it is famous for its raw natural beauty: both terrestrial as well as marine.

Our journey will start with me meeting you bright & early at your Airbnb after which we'll stop in at one of my favorite bakeries in Kalk Bay for a takeaway coffee & pastry before passing through Simon's Town to encounter our precious endangered African Penguins.

By mid-morning we’ll arrive at the Cape of Good Hope section of the Table Mountain National Park where our trail shoes can be of use! We’ll hike a mix of rugged mountain trails and stretches of white sand beach. During our hike I will share my knowledge of our botanically rich and diverse Fynbos biome, looking out for wildlife, insects, birds and reptiles along the way too.

We will do a 2.5-hour circular hike of an easy to moderate difficulty covering 6 km / 4 miles as well as a 2-hour exploration of the Cape Point and Dias Beach area on a linear / out-and-back trail of a moderate nature covering 4 km / 2.5 miles.

By late afternoon we’ll have to sadly jump back in the car to head into the city via Chapman's Peak Drive – which certainly puts a smile back on our faces!

Join me for a memorable day exploring the Cape of Good Hope uniquely on foot.

Growing up within the boundaries of the incredible Table Mountain National Park I had the mountains of Silvermine as my literal backyard. This is where my love for the Table Mountain range all began!

Fast forward 30 years and today I'm a full-time mountain guide in the Western Cape with professional accreditation by the legal bodies in South Africa after starting out in 2007 as a volunteer guide with school children.

Sharing my love for nature by leading interpretive nature trails & adventurous hikes across the fynbos covered mountains of the Cape allows me to live out my passion daily.

Saan ka pupunta

We drive the Cape Peninsula, passing through coastal towns of Kalk Bay & Simon's Town for coffee & responsibly encountering our endangered African Penguins.

Our main aim is to get hiking at the Cape of Good Hope, immersing ourselves in the Cape Floral Kingdoms’ incredible FYNBOS. We'll also walk to my favorite spot to absorb the drama of Cape Point & Dias Beach as well as enjoy an environmentally conscious picnic lunch away from the crowds.

Amazing and exceptional experience We spent a whole day hiking and exploring with Justin. We started early in the morning and had our breakfast at a bakery Justin suggested. As Justin is a local, he knows the area like the back of his hands and you are well-advised to follow his suggestions. Believe me, you won't be disappointed. I'm still stunned by all those unforgettable impressions of South Africa's nature and the expert knowledge of Justin in regard to flora and fauna. You can ask him any question and he knows the answer. That's what makes the experience not only breathing but also highly interesting. Justin, always radiating a sense of calm and enthusiasm, is totally aware of all the correlations in nature and his goal is to let you feel the same excitement. That is truly capturing. Let me give you the following advice: if you just want to trudge around all the sights, Justin might not be your guide to chose. He is not into providing a superficial, rapid and touristic insight. He offers guided off-trail hiking what helps you to fully understand and see the country's nature and landscape. Here a quick resume for receiving an impression of our day: Breakfast at local bakery Visiting the penguins Visit at Fynbos park and hike to Deviks peak Cape of Good Hope Cape Point/Olifantsbos off-trail hike Best wishes and thanks for this unique experience!

Beautiful hike through the magical Olifantsbos and trip to the impressive Cape Point Nationalpark. Justin is very compassionate about the nature and wildlife of the region and I found him a valuable guide to share stories about the beauty of the region. Highly recommended

Justin was absolutely incredible. I knew we’d have a great time just by his communication via Airbnb but then finally meeting him and having him take us around Cape Town and the Cape of Good Hope - showing us the area from his POV and having such immense knowledge about the Cape of Good Hope left me taken away. This was one the best parts of our trip and I know a memory that will last a lifetime. We came to Cape Town for our honeymoon and booking Justin was really the smartest and best decisions we made. His hospitality and kindness will never be forgotten.

Hands down one of the best days of our lives. This hike is a must see for anyone visiting Cape Town. Justin is incredibly knowledgeable and gifts you with a new appreciation for flora and fauna. The sights were breathtaking, as were the animal encounters we had the pleasure of experiencing. I can’t say enough good things about this activity!!!

Wow! Our day at Cape Point was fabulous! Justin is incredibly knowledgeable and turned what we thought would be just a fun hike into an educational and immersive experience. We are still sharing bits and pieces of info we learned. Justin loves what he does and it shows. He was also very flexible - allowing us to change times and hike paths to suit our group which ranged from 14 to 76 years old.
