“One end of Table Mountain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

You cannot visit devil's peak but you can see it throughout Cape Town. Once you get accustomed with the geographical orientation of Table Mountain and Lions Head it all makes perfect sense

“Great Vistas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Nice for viewing the whole of Cape Town both day and night - good photo scenery and easily combined with your visit to Table Mountain cableway

“Knifes Edge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

The title of this review comes from the narrow edge of rock connecting the two peaks of the Devils Peak. I climbed this a total of three times: twice as an informal guide. It's a tough climb and the trail becomes hidden at points so I would recommend finding a guide for the first time. Also, make a full day of it and pack a lunch, extra water, and a long-sleeved shirt! It can be chilly and windy! The first time up was the windiest for me so crossing the Knifes Edge and other parts with steep drops were absolutely exhilarating! The views are stunning and you can see both sides of the peninsula, the city bowl, UCT, and Table Mountain from the summit! Take a lot of pictures!

“Devils Peak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

The whole region is a natural wonder - and Devils Peak being Cape Town's guardian to the West is an ever present thing of inspiration.
The proteas were still hanging on during our visit and worth the drive up the hill.
