Phenomenal views of Cape Town and the surrounding mountains. This is truly deserving of one of the new seven natural wonders of the world. Quite surprised there were good walking paths with concrete and embedded rocks to walk all over the top of the mountain.

After long flights from NY we decided to go straight to Table Top mountain. We heard it was always busy - but at 2 PM there was no line and we zipped right up. The gondola was neat because the floor rotates and everyone gets a great view. Some parts have no window - so perfect for photography. Once up... More

We arrived in Cape Town at 10 AM and just drove over to Table Mountain. We were delighted to have great weather and got to go up on the mountain.... It was cold (bring a jacket) and SO BEAUTIFUL... There is so much to do - walk around many paths and enjoy the snack bar. There is really nice food... More

This is one of the most spectacular places in the world if you ask me. The view is breathtaking and the trip to the top of the mountain with the cable car is really nice. It's quite affordable as well and if you pick a sunny day you're good to go.

This has to be one of the most spectacular places to visit in the world. The trip up to the top of the mountain in the cable car is lovely- I last went up Table Mountain many years ago in one of the old cable cars and remember sitting on the floor as I was so scared- this time it... More

Put this one on your bucket list. Take your time to climb to the top and enjoy the views on the way. Take a camera and some bottled water. I wouldn't want to walk down. The lift was very reasonably priced and more great views

Just because table mountain is so visible everywhere you are in Cape town you must go up! We managed to pick a sunny and clear day so the views were amazing.

Words can't describe how incredible the views are from the summit of Table Mountain. We were so lucky to have blue skies with only a touch of cloud over the Twelve Apostles to add a bit of atmosphere. I could have stayed up there all day. Set aside at least 1-2 hours to walk around, explore every angle, take pictures,... More
