We bought a half day tour which we soon realised wasn't worth it as it's easy to do yourself! We arrived at around 8.30 am and the line was very long we had to wait an hour to buy a ticket ! It really is worth the wait and we enjoyed every part of the experience, great cable car ride... More

This is a must see attraction for when you visit Cape Town. The views of the city are amazing and there is lots of flora and fauna to be seen on top of the mountain. There are clear paths and many opportunities for epic photos. The city tour hop-on hop-off bus drives right up to where the line to the... More

During the summer, go very early to avoid the huge crowds. Avoid 9am-2pm. Get there by taxi, car or hop on off bus. We used bus, but taxi would have been better. You can purchase tickets online, at the bus or upon arrival. Better to do it beforehand to avoid the first line. The ticket allows you to ride the... More

Table Mountain in Cape Town is one of the new seven wonders of nature and it is a must to come to the top of this mountain if you are in Cape Town. You can walk to the top, 1000 meters altitude, but the most easy way will be to go go with the aerial cableway to the top. From... More

No experience or view is as amazing as from table Mountain. Hope for a sunny day and just go up the mountain. Either hike or take the awesome cable car ride. Do take a guided walk which is free and you will gain insights into not only the flora and fauna of Table Mountain but also interesting trivia about Cape... More

No-one can explain the absolute delight of many surprises en route to heavens door , to see the indigenous orchid Disa flower in its natural habitat was the crowning glory of this experience, and the sense of victory when looking up at the mountain and knowing you have scaled the heights of this natural wonder of the world .

You have to do the mountain especially if it's your first visit here. Super views and a good walk around the top. Take the cable car, or, if you're fit, you can have a wonderful scenic walk to the top which would take about 2 hours (plenty of sun cream needed as you're exposed). Part of being in Cape Town.

Myself and a group of friends hiked table mountain. For those who are keen on hiking, ensure that you know which route you are taking up the mountain and have done your research on it. Take lots of snacks and water as you easily get dehydrated and tired. I wouldn't recommend climbing down as it is incredibly dangerous and a... More
