Cape Town Adventure Guide For 2022

Are there any thrill seekers out there hungry for adventure? We know there are! Adventure makes life, in some sense, worthwhile. Can you imagine our lives without the small adventures to the grocery store? Or to the park with your partner?  

These moments and more make life interesting and new each and every day. Every now and again, however, our inherent need for adventure takes over, and we find ourselves craving an adventure, not to the grocery store but to the wild unknown. 

Fortunately, we exist in an amazing world that has plenty to offer on that front. Even more fortunate still, there exists a lonely landmark in the heart of the West Coast Sandveld that serves as the ultimate gateway to many an adventure. This, of course, is Klein Tafelberg 

Towering above the sandy plains just two hours outside of Cape Town, any adventure seeker will experience their fill of activities, adventures, and amazements at the Klein Tafelberg Adventure Centre. So, if you’re hungry for more of an adventure than a trip to the local supermarket or park, this one’s for you.  

Let’s have a look at the variety of adventure offerings that Klein Tafelberg provide.  

4×4 Trail 

Klein Tafelberg offers one of the best 4×4 trails in the country, nestled in the Sandveld and littered with rocky routes and beautiful mountains that overlook the trails. You can be sure to have an unforgettable experience!   


Breath-taking views and unforgettable scenery will leave you wanting more once you complete the glorious 10km hike provided at Klein Tafelberg. There’s an opportunity to spot several rare and wonderful animals, including the Verreaux’s Eagles, Starlings, Swallows, and even some of our protected Angulate Tortoises! 

The hike usually takes around 3 to 5 hours, depending on your speed. We’d suggest taking your time to truly experience the magic of the Sandveld! 


Take on and team up with your friends and family in the fun, military-style shooting sport that is airsoft! The Adventure Centre has an awesome shooting range to hone your shot skills and many “kill houses” that serve as airsoft battlegrounds.  

Rock Climbing 

Rock climbing in Cape Town never looked so good! We all know the thrill of navigating a solid rock formation with our bare hands, and the good news is that you can do just that at the Klein Tafelberg Adventure Centre.  

World-class facilities and walls await you for your next climbing adventure! 


Abseiling is essentially the opposite of rock climbing in that you scale down a rock or cliff face while grappling a rope. The rope is coiled around your body and attached to a point at the top where you begin your descent.   

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of freedom you feel when you’re up there: just you, the rope, and the rock. You can experience this and more at KT! 

Your Next Adventure Awaits 

There truly is something for everyone in the beautiful Sandveld. Bird enthusiasts will also be pleased to know that the Adventure Centre offers bird-watching tours where you can spot all sorts of different species and kinds of birds. Pretty sweet stuff, we’d say! 

So, if you’re looking for adventure, look no further than Klein Tafelberg!
