A must when travelling to Cape Town: a fantastic view over the city and the peninsula. Rather crowded, so go early!

I was there last September. The way up in a cable car is awesome. One can look down and will see the beautiful coastline of Cape Town, or look up and see a stoning vertical wall of yellow to orange coloured sandstone. When you get up there you can walk on a top surface with nice landscape and cute animals... More

The fog lifted intermittantly so we did get some views but not as good as if there had been no fog. This was early AM so maybe going at a later time would have been better.

One way of visiting Table Mountain is taking the cable car up ... but it is so much nicer to get physical and walk. One of the many routes / hikes is "Skeleton Gorce", starting in Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens en taking you up a steep path (including ladders, climbing through a waterfall and lots and lots of rocks), The path...

The sun came out so we walked for a few hours in the national park. Great views across cape town. Easy walks as well as some hard ones.... Would go again if time and weather permits

Such glorious weather made it a worthwhile walk to the western part of Table Mountain. The wild flowers were beautiful.

If you are in cape town make sure you go up to table mountain. You can either go on foot or cable car (queues in the afternoon are shorter) the views are fantastic of the city, we did the full walk round with is quite long but well worth it.

The unique landscape and vegetation make it a must see. Be prepared for all weather conditions and beware of the baboons and you'll have a wonderful day out.

No trip to Cape Town is complete without a visit to this iconic spot, with it magnificent views of the city and sea beyond.
