  • Been every year but it is a good way to start your trip to show you all the goodies you are about to experience. Get the cable car, ignore the photo happy other tourists and take it all in. Don’t lose...  more »
  • A storybook mountain. Head in the clouds and ocean view is perfect. You might want to withdraw the picture in every corner of the enchanting atmosphere of. Recommend wine by sunset.

  • No doubt it is a natural wonder and is an incredible experience to climb it. How difficult has to do with there are no clouds or that the wind doesn't bother us for access. If there are clouds the city is not, but it is also very rare to be up because it seems to be in the sky

  • Simply breath-taking... See some of my photos taken in my business trip to Cape Town, South Africa. This place will give you a strategic view on the whole city. Make sure that you will spare some time to stay up there and see the memorable hours of The South African sunset. I am sharing some of night shots taken with my camera. This shows the whole city architecture too
  • Absolutely Incredible!! It doesn't matter how many times I go, I am still taken back by the beauty of this place. There are a lot of different hiking routes and the dams on top are stunning. *Please note that the Waterworks museum on top is now open by appointment only.
  • I've been.to.Cape Point more than 12 years ago and what an experience to return.to.a place that is upgraded and cannot.stand back for any other country. Clean, Lots of signs where to go..... Lots of tourist but we as South Africans get a better rate to enter the park! Beautiful, beautiful all the way. Kids had a lovely time, breathtaking views of the oceans. Didn't expect to have a Flying Dutchman funicular ride.... Kids loved it! Its a great idea to.spend the day as a family.there😘
  • Simply amazing! Great signage, great information, and amazing views up and down the coast. Definitely worth taking the cable car up and wandering for as long as you can. And from down below, Tabletop is so beautiful, especially when the clouds drape over it like a tablecloth. Well done, mother nature and RSA!
  • Amazing place. It's a must see. We went in early January at 8am. After a long wait we finally managed to get up. Although on our way down about 3pm, the line was MUCH shorter and there was much more parking available. I'd suggest to go in the afternoon and spend time up there and catch the sunset.
