HIKING

WITH PERNILLE


   

Table Mountain is one of the oldest mountains on earth. Approximately 240 million years of age, it is 6 times older than the Himalayas and about 200 million years older then the Alps.


Table Mountain National Park stretches from above the City of Cape Town and 50 kilometres along the Cape Peninsula to the Cape of Good Hope. It offers a multitude of hiking trails with various degrees of difficulty. 

The Cape Floristic Region - often referred to a the Fynbos biome - is the smallest of the six floral kingdoms of the world, but it contains over 9000 different plants species. Almost 70% of these are endemic to the region. 

PERNILLE IS AN ACCREDITED MOUNTAIN GUIDE

She trained with Venture Forth in 2017-18 in Cape Town and is qualified to lead on-trail day hikes up to 2700m in South Africa.


Pernille has certified First Aid qualifications and years of hiking experience.

Tourist Guide Registration Number: WC 11179.

Member of Cape Tourist Guide Association (CTGA) and National Federation of Tourist Guides & Affiliates (NFTGA).

SUGGESTED ROUTES

Kasteelspoort is one of the most popular trails up the Atlantic side of Table Mountain. We start above Camps Bay and finish at the upper cable car station.


The route starts above Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden. It's a steep climb to the top of Nursery Ravine, but the trees along the path provide welcoming shade on hot summer days.


India Venster is one of the most beautiful hiking routes up Table Mountain. It requires a bit of scrambling but that's partly why it's so much fun! It offers spectacular views of the city bowl as you hike along the face of Table Mountain.


The Skyline Panorama Route offers 360 degrees views from Muizenberg across to Hottentot Hollands Mountain and local seaside villages on both sides of the Cape Peninisula.


The hike starts at Noordhoek Beach and winds its way almost 600 metres to the top of Chapman's Peak. You get an aerial view of Chapman's Peak Drive and uninterrupted views of the Sentinel, Hout Bay and Noordhoek Beach.


A total of 26 shipwrecks tell the story of how many ships sailed too close to the shoreline. The Thomas T. Tucker trail starts inside the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve and runs along the rocky coastline down to the unspoilt white beaches in the reserve.

CUSTOMER FEEDBACK

We had a wonderful 10-day trip to South Africa, including seeing Cape Town, the wine district and safari. Pernille organized everything for us, so the trip was only enjoyment. Organizing the trip prior to traveling was extremely efficient and enjoyable and Pernille followed up with us during the entire trip. I would strongly recommend Nonophela as a tour operator for your travels because of how easy the communication and planning of the trip was. Sometimes dreams seem far away, but thanks to Pernille and Nonophela mine came true!
