Was a lovely day and the views were spectacular, overlooking Cape Town out to Robben island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned.

A great view of Cape Town without having to go up Table mountain. Lots of paragliders taking off so lots to see. Even better you can drive to the top. A great way to see an aerialview of Cape Town.

Beautiful view - especially sunset! Very cold and windy - somewhat cloudy when we went but views of the city, sea, and Table Mountain made it all worthwhile!

Stop by for a nice view of Table Mountain and on the opposite side, there are great views of the coast. This would be a great place to see the sunset.

We were with a tour, and there while the Table Mountain cable cars were undergoing maintenance. It's nice that you could drive up to the top, and that there were places to stop and have a nice beverage near sundown. Gorgeous views, but don't just...More
