Mountain Walks and Picnic Sites

Venture into the mountains for the perfect picnic

Hotel guests are able to stroll straight from their rooms onto the mountainside to take in some fresh air and spectacular sea and mountain views. The Table Mountain National Park, a World Heritage Site, offers uninterrupted views and the hotel has created several packages for unforgettable outdoor experiences.

Have a delicious picnic on a specially laid out picnic site, toast romance while the sun sets into the Atlantic Ocean or simply let the kids run wild in the open space.  And while you feast your tastebuds on the food and your eyes on the stunning natural environment, know that you’re giving back to society, as all picnic baskets have been purchased from the Cape Town Society for the Blind.

Hotel guests are free to explore the various mountain trails – from 10 minutes to 45 minutes in duration - ask for a copy of the map below, from our Concierge desk. Or enquire about our complimentary Sports Buddies programme which allows for a staff member to join you as you hike through the Fynbos.

More Information

Stanley's Rock

Stanley’s Rock has been named after Stanley Tollman, husband of Founder and President of the Red Carnation Hotel Collection, Bea Tollman. The rock is located within Table Mountain's National Park and is made of Table Mountain sandstone, a soft stone that weathers a certain way due to high winds and extreme outdoor elements. Rich in floral biodiversity and home to the famous Fynbos vegetation, the Park forms part of the Cape Floral Kingdom World Heritage Site.

The positioning of Stanley’s Rock affords visitors sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean and Lion’s Head, as well as frequent sightings of whales, dolphins, seals – and ship wrecks.

Stanley’s Rock is located at Cape Reed Picnic spot (site 2) which is ideal for picnics, early morning breakfasts or sundowners, while a romantic proposal here almost guarantees a positive reply! A fantastic location offering plenty of photo opportunities and guests are encouraged to share their extraordinary experiences.
