Table Mountain is the most recognizable symbol of Cape Town, it can be seen from almost all over the city. Its flat top is often seen with a cloud "table-cover" as locals call it. A cable car takes you up to the top, but it is only recommended in clear weather, otherwise there not too much to see from above.

The Mother mountain for sure. Very exciting to get to the top and see the different views it awards you for the effort. I discovered what a Dassie is on my trip to Table Mountain. And the trails around the top offer some decent exercise, the edge of cliff experience got my attention! Please be careful, there isn't a guard... More

If the weather is good, it is very interesting to take the cable car and climb to the top of the mountain. You have an exceptional view from there. The best moment may be in the morning, where the view is clearer. It is possible to climb down the mountain by foot, instead of taking the cable car back. It... More

I have been up Table mountain many times, and each has been a different but no less amazing adventure. My most recent trip up was on a trip with a friend from America. She was a really easy guest to impress because she has never been to our amazing country, but table mountain definitely was one of the highlights. We... More

We knew Table Mountain was somewhat of an attraction after reviwing other Trip Advisor comments before we went to Cape Town. We had no idea that it basicially surrounds Cape Town and is unbelievably spectacular up close. We hiked up to the top and took the cable car down. If you're not up to the hike, taking the cable car... More

Cape Town city is a great sight to see from the Table mountain. It's fun to climb and manageable for even those who are not fans to hiking.

Excellent views, especially just before sunset. Go towards the evening to avoid the cable car queues. Carry a jacket. It is freezing up there!

One of the special wonders of the Cape that you can't miss and have to visit every couple of years! The views are spectacular and the weather is normally pretty good when you are allowed to go up the mountain.
