Our Guides are the key ingredient for success at Cape Hikes. Our guides consist of young and old, and all come from different areas of the Western Cape, but one thing they have in common is a love for the outdoors that Cape Town and the Western Cape has in abundance. Our guides understand the importance of professionalism, are caring, and are well versed in risk management. Each guide has his/her own unique way of going about their guided hike, and all information and guidance are done in a relaxed enjoyable fashion. You are here to have fun on your hike, that is key.
On both day trips and backpacking trips, we will never exceed a 1:6 ratio of guides to participants. However, we strive for a 1:15 ratio. This ensures both a safe and relaxed environment.
Every guide is at least, VFI certified and possesses a recognized medical certificate.
