Table Mountain is easily Cape Town’s most famous and beloved landmark. The mountain gets its name from its unusual flat top, and the city of Cape Town is all the more unique and charming because Table Mountain towers over her. If you’re in Cape Town during summer, you’ll experience two things for sure: the south to southeasterly wind (not so... More

We took the cablecar up and down however if you're brave you can hike up and down. Views are just beautiful!!!! 360 degrees of Capetown and the surrounding area. Can get very chilly at the top. Good idea to be prepared.

Definitely a must see if in Cape Town but bear in mind everyone also has it on their list. We got there early so had a relatively short wait of about 30 mins. By the time we came down the queue was at least three times as long. When you get to the top if you are up to it... More

Must visit place in Cape town. It is well organised and when you get to the top it is worth the wait. Fantastic views and perspective on Cape town and a great place to spend a few hours

Table Mountain is a must-see attraction. Pictures and videos do not do it justice. Once you land in Cape Town be prepared to make your way up Table Mountain as soon as you get a clear day. It is windy most days and the park closes if the wind is too strong. There are several hiking trails, Plattelkip Gorge being... More

Superb views from the cable car and from the mountain itself. Suggest that a trip to the Table Mountain should be explored first (over other many other attractions in Cape Town), because cloud/fog cover can descend very quickly on the mountain blocking the view.

Table Mountain is the one place you can never get to much of.. It's face change on a daily basis no need for any editing here.. Young and old this is a face you will never forget and the one table where you will always be welcomed
