Except during a helicopter ride this is your best spot to have THE Kodak Moment over Cape Town. You can walk up, but most people choose the cable car, which swivels around it´s own axes all the way to the top. Great view there as well, but don´t waste all your batteries on that cable car ride, wait until you... More

What an incredible hike! Just be sure to bring plenty of water. It's look harder than it looks. When you make it to the top, you'll know why you did it. Truly breathtaking and a true feeling of accomplishment.

A trip up Table Mountain must be one of the greatest experiences in the world for anyone. If you are hesitating to go up because you are afraid of heights, don't. The new modern cable cars are very stable, with little movement and rotate slowly on the journey, so that everyone gets a great view and photo ops. Pathways along... More

The wife wanted to walk to the top I said no! On average 8 people meet their maker every year doing that, so take the cable car! Make sure that you have your camera, the views will take your breath away, book your tickets online, the queue is shorter and quicker. Put on sun screen, the sun is hot in... More

I didn't know much about Table Mountain when I went with my boyfriend and his Father so it was a fantastic surprise when we reached the top. The view is beyond breath taking, you honestly feel like you're on top of the world. We went in the evening time so we got to see the sun set over the ocean... More

Went up the mountain in the peak of winter. It was covered in fog, but cleared up while we were there. Stunning views, great facilities, efficient service, and bitterly cold.

We actually hiked up, and took the cable car down. They hike up was.....well....a pretty good work-out. We're all in shape, and it took about 1.5 hours, with a few rests. Very manageable, but if you haven't exercised for a few years, better to take the cable car both directions

The mountain makes cape town what it is as one of the best places to visit in the world. Not only is the mountain a view but the sceneary from the top is also breathtaking. This is a must visit for your bucket list.
