“Spacious vies of the city.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

We hiked up the main trail instead of riding the tram, which is beautiful. It's is a fairly tough hike with about a 1000 m elevation gain. It took me 2.5 hours but I could have climbed it faster, had I brought more water. Take extra! Enjoy the views.

“Take an early morning car - just in case the clouds decide to be unfriendly”

Brilliant in the Sun; etherial in the mist. I went twice in a week to experience both environments. Very well priced... great little cafe and shop...

“Everything You Expect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Brilliant way to spend a few hours. Extremely windy and a significant temperature decline from the base...Dress warmly, even on a summer's day...or buy a fleece at the top.

“Stunning Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

We visited Table Mountain at around noon time. The queue was long and it took around an hour until we got on the cable car. It it highly recommended to book your tickes online as the waiting time might even be longer if you buy them there.
One you reach the top you will forget about the waiting time. We had a very clear day and could overlook the entire city of Cape Town, Robben Island, the 2 oceans as well as the Cape of Good Hope.
Table Mountain is a must see!

“Views to die for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Take the trip it is well worth seeing all of Cape Town, we managed to get to see the mountain without the table cloth on it, if you have the oppurtunity to then take it as the cloud will come in without a moments notice.
