Once at the summit, you’ll see and hear the city waking up. Yes, you can hear your heartbeat as if the African drums are pounding within you, because there is no noise pollution.


The BEST part is looking up into the distance before sunrise, the view so spectacular that Picasso and van Gogh could be painting in front of your eyes. Everything changes shape, first you’ll think it’s clouds, but then you’ll realize it's the mountain that's slowly appearing out of the darkness. Even better, when the clouds are underneath you, it seems as if Cape Town is covered with a blanket.


The sheer breath-taking beauty of this hike, which combines nature and the beautiful city of Cape Town, is well worth the sacrifice of the early awakening.
