Travel to the top of Table Mountain for jaw-dropping views over The Cape of Good Hope in Cape Town

Explore Cape Town in the saddle on this MTB tour to Table Mountain

An uphill climb where the views get better with every rotation, explore Table Mountain National Park on this Mountain Bike Tour from Cape Town. A scenic route that cuts the crowds, explore the King’s Block House trail on this half-day two-wheeler in the shadow of South Africa’s most iconic landmark.

Table Mountain is a flat top summit that overlooks Cape Town – stretching 1300 acres as part of the National Park on the Cape of Good Hope. This activity follows the King’s Block House MTB trail – a 27km route from the lower cable car station towards Devil’s Peak.

Meet your guide in Cape Town for this half-day Mountain Bike tour in Table Mountain National Park. An impressive way to beat the crowds without substituting views, this tour is suited to both beginner and experienced riders alike – and can even be completed by children as young as 9 years old. The adventure starts with a warm-up ride along Table Mountain road, heading onto a dirt track on the 27km King’s Block House. Stopping at special elevations, views stretch across the city and the Southern Suburbs – including the coastline of Table Bay and False Bay. Once you reach the top, it’s time for that group selfie to mark the achievement and a few moments of quiet contemplation before you tackle the descent - a steep downhill track and single trails at UCT/Rhodes Memorial where you can choose to enjoy some refreshments in the beautifully situated tea garden, before heading through Deer Park and back to the bus.

Suitable for groups of friends and families alike, this 5-hour ride is suitable for the beginner to experienced rider. The activity navigates a range of terrain that varies from easy roads to great downhill single tracks. Participants are required to send heights prior to arrival in order to allocate the correct sized bike.
