Going up Table Mountain is always wonderful and different every time. I've celebrated New Years on the mountain and gone up on my birthday (free cable car ride for South Africans on your birthday). I've hiked up Platteklip Gorge, which wasn't as hard as it looks and I've climbed up via Skeleton's Gorge from Kirstenbosch Gardens, experiencing the mountain from... More

Weather and visibility varies, but when it's clear and the gondola is open, this is an absolutely beautiful view of the whole Cape area. The summit has walking paths and a range of native flowering plants. Look for the little rock hyrax who have a colont at the top. One of the 7 wonders of the Natural world. Worth planning... More

We took the ride up the cable car. Once at the top there is some excellent places to take pictures and enjoy the views! Their are areas to use bathrooms and have picnics, or order some lunch. You can see so much beautiful landscape from up here, its a definite must for adults and children! We had such a good... More

Table Mountain is a significant feature in the Cape Town landscape. This time I went up with the cable car. Next time I will definitely hike up. At the top there are plenty of easy walking paths.

Amazing views! Altho they should notice every visitor that goes with the cable-car about the time of the last one! we almost missed it if we didn't bumped into two hikers that told us about it..

We were very lucky to have a clear day during our visit to Cape Town. The views are amazing. The trails are very well kept and not stenuous at all.

The view, the peace, the view, the history, the view and the affordability. You must go here even if you have only an hour or two spare.

After the cable car ride to the summit I was expecting a viewing area and cafe but not much more. However, I was very pleasantly surprised to find that there are plenty of paths to follow to get fantastic scenic views all round the mountain. We were lucky that the weather was hot and sunny and the horizon clear and... More

What I did see was amazing. I could not get to the highest point even though there was a path because I had to get through a restaurant area (following the signs I saw) and they were unable to help me through. Watch the paths which are laid with rough stones in concrete making small wheels on wheelchairs a problem.

We took the ride up the mountain in the cable car. Once we reached the top, there were several areas for us to take some excellent and priceless photos. There was a restaurant and bathrooms available also which made for a nice break. It was fun to see the exhibit where it shows where you are from and how far... More
