Very peaceful hike in the morning. Took the cable down. Great bird watching throughout the incline and the shops/cafe at the top are a great chill spot. Cafe has wifi in case you want to live stream your achievement. Saw a family of Dassies, sooooo cute! Abseiling is another cool option.

Stunning views of the city and sea. Once cannot visit Cape Town without going to Table Mountain. The cable car ride was lovely, the facilities at the top more than adequate. We traveled via the Hop On/Hop Off bus which was easy and offered stunning vistas on the return trip to the city.

I last visited Table Mountain some years ago. Half way through our visit it had suddenly got very foggy so we had to curtail our visit. This time it was a beautiful clear sunny day and we thoroughly enjoyed views of various parts of Cape Town. The Football Stadium at Green Point looked spectacular from the top of the mountain....

A really fun and moderately challenging hike (there are a variety of paths of with varying difficulty); rewarded by the views from the top and the best part, a ride down on the gondola! I would recommend a guide as they are relatively affordable and there are so many options to the top.

I wonderful outing celebrating our grandson's 5th birthday. His and dad's first visit to the top of the mountain and all enjoyed the beauty of nature and great views of our city and the Peninsula. The National Park is very well managed and maintained. Keep up the good work.

You can see why Cape Town is the number one city in the world it's the mountain of courses. The view is amazing, nothing compares to this. Trek up if you are feeling strong or take the cable car. The photos are the best rating Gir this incredible 7th natural wonder of the world.

If you are visiting Cape Town, then the mountain is your iconic Cape Town experience. We took our niece and nephew recently and were very impressed with the whole experience. The staff were all polite, friendly and helpful. My niece said we should have taken a picnic to eat on the top - a good idea as the restaurant can... More

A cable car wisks you up to the top. About a 5 min. ride. The cable car rotates so everyone gets a good view. Go early as it gets crowded. If you're adventurous, you can repel off the mountain.
