Amazing walk on top of the mountain, just make sure you get a ticket to the cable car in advance on line otherwise you will have to queue for many hours. The coffee place was also good and view from the cable car was fantastic,

When in Cape Town, this is a must. Very dependent on the weather though. Too windy, they close the cable car for obvious safety reasons. Too cloudy, you can’t see a thing at the top, although, you can be above the cloud when you get...More

We loved our time exploring Table Mountain. We took the cable car up on a lovely clear day, and the views were simply stunning. We spent around 2 hours walking the paths and taking photos.

There’s much to do in Cape Town, but it’s true. If there’s one thing you MUST do, is go to Table Mountain. Make sure it’s a clear day and if you can watch the sunset, the more perfect. The crowds have finally died down at...More
