Skeleton Gorge To Maclears Beacon Information

Skeleton Gorge

Starting from the beautiful Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens the route continues up the lush wooded Skeleton Gorge. The route involves some steep walking and sections that are aided by ladders. The route covers a large section of the Table Mountain eastern face and ending at the Upper Cable Station. Highlights on the route include stunning panoramic views of the Cape Peninsula and summiting Table Mountain at Maclears Beacon.

Platteklip Gorge is the recommended descent route during adverse weather conditions when the Cable Car is unable to operate. Should we find that the Cable Car is closed, we would gladly accompany you down for no additional fee.

The guide fee excludes the ticket cost for the entrance into Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden (R75) and the decent via the Cable Car. (R200pp)
