You must go

If you think Table Mountain looks good from the city, you should see it going up in the cable car! Spectacular- Stunning - and the views from the top are jaw dropping. You must go.

Table Mountain Cable Car is a must do, not only for international visitors but for the locals as well. They have a wonderful sunset special at the moment where you only pay half after 18:00. I abseiled at the end of the last year from the mountain and also take visitors up the cable car - the views are breathtaking,... More

Table mountain is one of the places that whatever time you spend there it is not enough. The view of the mountain, especially the one that looks like Sphinx, is amazing.

Hiked up to the top with friends. The trail took about two hours to the top. Once there we enjoyed amazing views of cape town and camps bay. The restaurants at the top have tasty and reasonably priced food and drinks (wine too). If you hike up, don't go alone. There are reports of rapes and theft of single travelers.... More

Table Mountain was 1 of my must do's when we visit Cape Town and when we saw that the cable cars were running and the top was clear we headed straight towards the mountain. As it was just after the Christmas holidays it was fairly quiet and we didn't have to wait in long queues. The Cable car floors trn... More
