This is a wonderful day out on the Eastern side of Table Mountain, firstly exploring the beautiful gardens of Kirstenbosch, then heading up Skeleton Gorge to the contour path (or another option is also to hike all the way to the top - another 1 1/2 hours hiking). Then we head down towards the Constantia winelands to experience wine-tasting at its best at Beau Constantia Wine Estate.
Your OTC guide will collect you from your accommodation and transport you to Kirstenbosch Gardens from where the hike starts. Before starting on the hike wander around the gardens with your guide and see the spectacular displays of plants at Kirstenbosch and marvel at this botanical beauty on the majestic slopes of the East side of Table Mountain. We then head up on the Skeleton Gorge path through the luscious jungle Afromontane forest (African Mountain Tropical Forest). There are a few ladders and rocks to negotiate en-route and then the spectacular, rewarding views open up of False Bay, Southern Suburbs and surrounding mountains!We head on a mostly downward trail through the indigenous fynbos (fine leaved bush) to Beau Constantia Wine Estate, a boutique wine farm situated at the top of Constantia Nek overlooking False Bay, for a phenomenal wine tasting of some of the best wines in the oldest wine valley in South Africa and for an optional lunch at the Chef's Warehouse Restaurant at Beau Constantia. This restaurant is one of the top 10 restaurants in Cape Town. ( www.beauconstantia.com / www.beauconstantia.com/eat-chefs-warehouse-beau-constantia )
