no words can describe the views one get to see from up at the table mountains. one has to actually be there and get the feeling. A lot depends on weather though but the view of clouds beneath you on one side and the views of whole cape town on another, just amazing. It is indeed a gift to the... More

Spectacular views on a perfect day today. The temperature was mile, the wind was minimal,the sun was shining, the clouds were far off. I cannot imagine a better outing in Cape Town! Friends and I walked along two or three different paths for about an hour, stopping to make pictures. It was exciting to realize we were standing higher than... More

First time seeing or being on Table Mountain (TM), i felt some sort of achievement of some kind, the view from up there at night is breathtaking it looks like a mini galaxy, so peaceful and so quiet but very cold hahaha, in the morning as the sun comes out and it reflects on TM it looked beautiful.

Enjoy a breathtaking aerial view of Cape Town from table mountain. Choose from a variety of hiking trails. Hike up the mountain or take the rather impressive cable car to the top. Try to go during less busy times as the queues can get extremely long. Be vigilant when hiking towards the top as there have been a few muggings.... More

Great park with amazing views all over the place. If you get a sunny day, be sure to go about 2 hours before the park closes so you can get the Sunset before going down. You can go on foot (there are trails all over) or by cable car (it's a rotating vehicle so don't worry much about your positioning)... More

It was my first time travelling to South Africa to see my best friend who is from Cape Town. I can't say I am a professional hiker but I do occasionally hike when I have time. It is currently winter aka the wet season in Cape Tow and it had also showered a bit the day before. Although hiking up... More

Wow! If you are a hiker visiting Table Mountain you must go for a hike while in town. We chose the Platteklip Gorge trail which took us about 3 hours one-way going up, partly because we stopped often for photos and to enjoy the sweeping views of the city and ocean. The trail is mostly rock stairs and goes up,... More
