My husband and I hiked Skeleton's gorge, across the reservoir, and over to the cable car station. On the way down, we took Platteklip over to the lower cable car station. The uphill was a tough workout, but the view at the top is breathtaking. The trip down was interesting...be careful of puff adders-they don't move, making them incredibly difficult... More

Probably one of the coolest and best experiences with the most amazing views you will ever see! Definitely worthwhile, plenty of trails to wonder about far or near! Definitely make sure you have your best walking shoes on as curiosity always gets the best of me.

Didn't experience any queues for the cable cars. The revolving floor of the car meant that everyone got a good view going up and the views from the top are spectacular. If you visit Cape Town then this is a must.

For most people, getting to Cape Town is a once in a lifetime opportunity. My friend lives there, and when I was in town he had to talk me into checking this out. Wow! I was glad I listened. Such a great experience, so beautiful. Being among the clouds while looking down on the city was majestic. God's creation is... More

What a great view. On a clear day like I have today, you don't wanna look at anything else. One of the best places in the world.

If you have time do to only one thing at Cape Town, visit the Table Mountain is the thing to do. Amazing landscape!!! But, it can be a dangerous place for children, because the wall at the borders are small. I kept my son close to me all the time. But even with children, definitely worth a visit.

Cape Town is a gorgeous city and the view from Table Mountain is spectacular. Just be aware the conditions can change rapidly so if it's a clear day, go up as soon as possible. The clouds can roll in quickly and ruin the view.
