Table mountain has many hiking trails and points of interest. The most spectacular part is obviously the the cable car side of things but the mountain has so much more to offer. The best to ask locals about their favourite spots.

I live in Cape Town and this will always be one of the best things to do when visiting the city. My husband loves walking up the trails but I just take the cable car to the top. An excellent way of seeing everything from high above. Great place to think, great place to realise how blessed you are to... More

It is not surprising that Table Mountain is a prestigious member of the New 7 Wonders of Nature. It has something for everyone and the views are simply breathtaking. We've been a number of times as we live in Cape Town and never tire of this magnificent mountain. We've always gone up and down in the revolving cable car, but... More

Table Mountain was central to my friend from the US's trip to Cape Town. She loved it. The mountain became our compass and friend along all our travels.

This is where it all starts in Cape Town. You get a perspective of where you are and the views are superb. Trip up in revolving cable car is fun as well. Definitely a must!

The trip up Table Mountain in the cable car is quite breath taking. You can walk all over the top of the mountain and see views of all sides of the Cape. Wearing decent walking shoes is advised. There is a cafe where you can grab a bit to eat, refreshments or even an ice cream!bif you feel like hiking... More

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
