Discover the benefits of hiking during Cape Town’s spring with Path & Peak Adventures; from ideal weather to beautiful flowers and captivating photography; we’ve got it all.

Hello Path & Peak Family!


Spring has sprung, and there’s no better time to pack your backpacks, lace up your hiking boots, and hit the trails in our beautiful Mother City. With its breath taking landscapes, vibrant flora, and pleasant weather, Cape Town in spring is a hiker’s paradise. And guess what? We’ve got an exciting treat – an exclusive 15% discount offer from us at Path and Peak Adventures just for you!

Why hiking in spring in Cape Town rocks:


  1. Blooming Beauty: Spring in Cape Town means the fynbos and wildflowers are in full bloom. The landscape bursts with colours, creating a visually stunning backdrop for your hikes. It’s like walking through a botanical wonderland. One of the best examples of this would be the Watsonia flower; coming in a wide array of gorgeous pinks, purples, whites and oranges the Watsonia blankets Table Mountain’s front slopes at this time of year and can best be experienced whilst hiking up the India Venster route.
  2. Ideal Weather: The weather in spring is just perfect for hiking. Our summer months can see some swelteringly hot days and winter in Cape Town is oftentimes cold, rainy and overcast. But in spring it’s not too hot or too cold, allowing you to enjoy your outdoor adventures without breaking a sweat or shivering in the cold. What’s also beautiful is that many of the waterfalls created by the winter rains are still trickling and flowing down the mountain; allowing hikers to appreciate this natural phenomenon albeit in more pleasant weather.
  3. Wildlife Wonders: Springtime brings out the local wildlife, so keep your eyes peeled for charming critters and beautiful birds along your hike. Cape Town is home to some fascinating little creatures and one of the most well-known would be the Rock Hyrax, otherwise known as the Dassie; this is an outrageously cute yet furtive mammal that dots the summit of Table Mountain and Lion’s Head. A note for our more friendly guests; please keep your fingers to yourself whilst around the Dassie if you want to keep them! :)
  4. Diverse Trails: Whether you’re a seasoned hiker or a beginner, Table Mountain offers a wide range of trails to suit all levels. From gentle coastal walks to challenging mountain ascents, there’s a trail for everyone. What’s especially great about springtime hiking in the Mother City is that the cooler weather allows for more time on the mountain. Summer days can get blisteringly hot and we like to get out there at the crack of dawn and off the mountain by mid-morning. In spring you’ve often got all the time in the world to relax, enjoy and immerse yourself on your trail of choice.
  5. Photo Opportunities: The springtime landscapes are a photographer’s dream. You’ll capture Instagram-worthy moments at every turn, from panoramic vistas to up-close shots of vibrant flowers. The flora on the mountain at this time of year really is awe-inspiring and many a guided hike with Path & Peak has been halted to take in the absolute beauty of flowers such as the Watsonia, Disa or, in particular, our national flower the King Protea.
