The best time to go up to the top is about an hour before sunset. It doesn't seem to be too crowded at this time of the day and you can take a picnic and a bottle of wine and watch the sun sink into the ocean. There are spectacular views out over Cape Town also. Well worth a look.

Yes, sure you can stand in a queue for goodness knows how long, to take the cable car to get to the top of Table Mountain. But, why not take one of the many scenic hiking trails instead? There are numerous routes for novice hikers and a few for seasoned hikers. By taking one of the hiking trais, you'll see... More

The experience is breath taking and the most beautiful thing to see. Standing on Top of the Mountain and looking down, to the one side it's the sea that goes on for miles and miles. It's so peaceful and calming for the Soul and the other side it's the busy Cape Town, the Harbour and Waterfront and Car's traveling in... More

A trip up the mountain is not to be missed. The cable car ride is awesome & the views of Cape Town are fantastic. Go on the first clear day as many days the clouds are covering the top & the able car does not run.

The cable car ride to the top of the mountain is fascinating in its own right. The views and rock formations are exceptionally striking. The mountain is often cloud covered, so pick a clear day for your visit

One of the new 7 natural wonders, Table Mountain is well worth the visit. On windy days or when the mountain is cover by cloud (the tablecloth) the cable car is stopped. Spend a hour or so an see a fantastic view of the city and area.

You have not been in Cape Town if you have not been on the mountain. It is majestic and is one of the tings that gives Cape Town soul. Whether you are a health and fitness nut who loves excercise, or a couch potatoe, Table mountain is for you. You can drive up to the cable station, take the cable... More
