A must when in Cape Town. We visited in Early March and the weather was glorious, once up on the mountain, the views are breathtaking and plenty of walks on the mountain where you can take in the formations, flowers, wildlife etc. There are guides on hand for quick tours and questions, great viewing points for pictures whilst walking around...

Fortunately,I've been to Table Mountain during my 4 nights trip to Cape Town with group.First 3 nights in Cape Town was bad weather on the top of Table Mountain and saw closed signal.It was great experience and lovely place of Cape Town. Fantastic ocean view and fresh breeze on the top of mountain was paradise. Definitely I love it.

Go there in the afternoon and see the sunset from the top! Amazing! You are up very fast and it is surprisingly warm and not windy at the top ;)

There are long queues for this at times, not only to get up but down as well. The view is well worth the wait though and the walk is lovely on a warm day...cold with no view when the table cloth cloud comes down and covers it but we were lucky as clear on the last day of our visit.... More

The cable car ride to the top was breathtaking with 360 degree views, once on top the views are stunning, whilst we were visiting a helicopter landed which was exciting to see. We saw lizards and darcies (similar to guinea pigs) an experience not to miss .

Visiting Table Mountain can be "hit or miss" because it is so weather-dependent. On the day we visited, the sky was clear, a breeze was blowing and the sun was shining!. It's a great place to see wonderful views of the city and the ocean.

You can't travel to Cape Town and not go up table mountain. There are a number of ways to do this, all great depending totally on your own preference: 1. For the fit - hike up 2. For the wealthy - fly up ( there are a number of helicopter flips you can book) 3. For the family- take the... More

Make sure you go on a clear day and if possible book online just before you go, that way you will avoid a long queue to buy a ticket

This is such a great place to visit. You can see the whole of Cape Town from here. In the summer, it is also great to take a picnic and watch the sunset.
