Stunning views from this landmark! Absolutely breathtaking to see a 360 degree view of the city and all it has to offer. Option to hike up or take the convenient and fun cable rail...can even repel off the side of it :)

This is the must see attraction of Cape Town, South Africa. The views are spectacular as is the cable car ride both up and back down the mountain. One unexpected attraction are the unusual plants and birds found in the park.

Table mountain is definitely one of thr places to visit should you be in Cape Town. Great sightings and walks from the top, when you up there it feels as if you are on top of the world.

It one of the best place I have seen in my life ! if you are going to Cape Town, you should climb ! it's better I think, And you feel the nature, but sometimes it's difficult to climb, mainly if you are like us and you lose your way ... just take care to not start to climb at... More

Table Mountain is a must-do, and you have amazing views once you get to the top. The only thing is that it can get crowded with tourists.

It is obvious to me why this is one of the seven wonders of nature. A breath taking hike up and walk on top. Don't forget to bring a jacket or a sweater, it can be cold an windy on top (even when the weather is warm and sunny down).

Get there early or buy your tickets from the Hop On Hop Off bus guys to avoid the line up. The cable ride is fast and smooth. Today was a beautiful clear day. There's a restaurant and wash rooms at the top.

Whenever we are fortunate enough to make a trip to Cape Town, we make sure that we have time for a hike up Table Mountain via the Plattikip Gorge. We made the hike again this December and despite having clouds and very heavy winds moving in at the top, we again enjoyed the exhaustion that you earn on the hike.... More

We were very fortunate that there was no cloud on the day of our visit and the wind had dropped by the time we arrived at the cable car. The cable car ride was the start of our adventure. The paths at the top of the mountain were manageable, even for those with minimal fitness levels. The 360 degree views... More
