Climbed table mountain with 8 and 9 year old children. It was wonderful! There are lots of routes but we went up Skeleton Gorge which starts on Table Mountain Road just higher than the cable car. Be prepared, take water and snacks, it takes at least 1.5 hours. We took cable car down because that is such fun too and... More

My daughter and I rode the very efficient cable car to the top of this beautiful place, one of the 7 wonders of the world. When the sun dipped behind a cloud, we were freezing and could see our breath. Other tourists were running around in shorts. Mile high sea stones, tide pools, Fynbos in winter glory Looking over our... More

1st Tip: There is a free MyCiTi shuttle service from the Lower Tafelberg Road stop, just off Kloof Nek Road, to the Upper Tafelberg Road stop at the Lower Cable station :-) 2nd Tip: Do not miss to take the cable way! You will be surprised with its 360 degrees rotating floor along with the most amazing views of Cape... More

We hiked from the botanical gardens to the cable cars. It took roughly 3 hours. The views as you start reaching the top is amazing. The path there is well marked as well but as usual you should watch your step as you hike up. We cable car it down afterwards. Do be aware that they cable is not always... More

Unfortunately the day i went up the mountain there was a thick (tablecloth) of cloud over the top of the mountain... I could see nothing at the top. I would suggest you go on a clear day. I did the cableway anyway and was happy that i did it because i could still see the view from halfway up the... More

There was 2 hour lines to get up the mountain and 1 hour to get down. Extremely crowded with people taking selfies in every direction. We were told it was unsafe to carry our cameras but with all the tourist it would have been fine. View was obscured by a brown haze. If you walk up allow 2-3 hours. It... More

It is difficult to describe the beauty of being on top of Table Mountain and seeing Cape Town and the surrounding areas. You just have to experience it for yourself!
