The beautiful city of Cape Town thrives around its rock, the majestic sandstone Table Mountain. To the north lies the city centre, the east the suburbs , the south the Indian Ocean and Cape Point and to the west the Cape riviera and Atlantic beaches. We choose walking up the mountain from the world renowned Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden and taking... More

We went in February and bought tickets online. We bought morning and sunset and ended up only using the Sunset and got a refund of the morning tickets. It was easy to do. Make sure its not a windy day or you make be hiking down. Bring a good camera!

Astonishing views, a variety of trails and good food. Great outing for young and old. Always take a jacket as winds can be chilly up there even when warm below.

Table Mountain has so much to offer when it comes to the hiking experience. Every thing from a basic up hill hike to a crueling extremely challenging hike/climbs. Be sure and check the ratings on the hikes and trust the ratings as some of the routes are higher risk due to exposure to falls and the physical challenge as well.... More

A great way to see different views of the peninsula as there are many routes. Beautiful flora, fresh air and beautiful views make this a 'must do'. Those going up need to make sure of good walking shoes, have enough refreshments especially water on hot days, and a windbreak as it can get chilly very quickly. Go with someone experienced... More

Took the cable car up there as it was late in the day. You need to wait for a clear day to fully enjoy it, we had one of those! It's possible to hike up to the mountain but be careful not to do it alone and not late at night or too early as I heard there are thieves... More

Even though one is afraid of heights going up in the cable car you are not even aware how high you are raised. Once at the top you literally feel on top of the world.....You feel free and the views is priceless.

Quick queue, up the walkway and waiting for the cable car did not take long. Smooth ride up with the 360 degree views over the whole of the Cape Town area - from north to south and east to west. When at the top you feel like you are on top of the world, because you can see forever. The... More
