The Park is well maintained all year round. A new experience and sight awaits you around every corner whether you walk, hike, use the cable car or just drive.

It's always a great destination but I prefer June to September when the flowers are abundant and the weather is cooler.

Value for spectacular beauty, table mountain is Cape Towns attraction for tourist and also 7 wonders if the world. Great for morning picnics for the adventure 'yolo' folk, of simply a great outing for the family with a lovely restaurant to quench thirst or fill the tummy.

We went up in the cable car which in itself gives great views. When we got to the top we could see nothing due to a cloud covering the mountain. But within 5 minutes it had gone leaving a clear view for miles. That is beauty, the changing of the weather makes I feel even closer to nature. We trekked... More

Get there early to avoid the queues, but be warned that it can get very cold up on the table, especially if it's a windy day. We went when the tablecloth came in, but still had enough views to make it worth the trip. The free guided tour was well led and hardly used (we were on the first car... More

This is a well-organised attraction but get there early to avoid the queues. The cable car rotates and provides all visitors with an amazing 360 degree view on the way up, the scenery at the top is breathtaking but chilly, make sure you take a cardigan/coat. The weather can change at any moment, so best to keep an eye on... More

We went up with the cable car which was very good, the turning floor in the gondola makes sure that you have a 360 view of the area. The views from the top are amazing, you could see the whole area surrounding Cape town. Make sure to go up when it is clear, as clouds can really quickly block your... More

We were very lucky to have a good weather day and make it up on the cable car before it got too windy. The views were great and the whole operation was very well organised. Would be good if the same company took over Robben island as well.
