What we're about
The focus of The Mountain Goats is to walk shorter routes in smaller groups at a brisk and consistent pace. The group will include no more than 12 people and the routes should take around 3-4 hours. A good basic level of fitness is required; just to make sure you enjoy yourself, and more importantly, so that the group stays together. It won’t feel like a bootcamp though – there will always be time to enjoy the scenery, take a few pics and keep up the conversation (even on the uphills!)
There will be a Goat tradition of sharing a post-hike snack at a local waterhole somewhere near the finish. Great new friendships are sure to be made as you become part of the herd. (Although goats move around in trips apparently!)
Some longer routes will also be planned, as well as an overnighter or multi-day hike now and again. All Goat members are more than welcome to suggest new routes so we can expand the group of organisers.
We are not professional guides or climbers, just a group of friends who enjoy hiking and exploring the trails of Cape Town regularly in good company, with the hope of meeting other like-minded mountain enthusiasts.
