  • World Heritage Site. Well run. Wish it received more government funding and therefore job creation. Many beautiful, tranquil, safe pockets of restorative nature. If you choose the lesser travelled paths then you can find almost complete silence, with the gentle sounds of nature layering the experience. Such magnificence right here on our city's back door step. There is a succinct artwork at the fan Bridge, Foreshore, which has a tight, tall metal rainbow arching elliptically over a base, with the words "it's beautiful here". That Cape Town in a nutshell.
  • The weather was great, sunblock is a necessity. It appears to be safe. There's enough space to take the dogs and cats for a walk. Cyclers are quite an ordinary sight up there. Always let someone know your whereabouts, should you decide to go hiking on your own. And yes man, the rest speaks for itself.... Its nature man, in its purest form. Enjoy!!
  • Fantastic Experience. Would recommend going around an hour or 2 before sunset and waiting to see the sun set over the ocean an the city come to life after dark. This would depend on weather, crowds etc. but the view at sunset with the hues of blue and pink are unbelievable. The City after dark is stunning with a twinkling and golden display.
  • View is breathtaking. Cable cart is not inexpensive, but the ride is a good experience. Hiking is only recommended if you're in shape and have the right gear. Nice workout too, definitely take proper head and body covers.
  • The cable car was fun, walking around the top was nice. When the weather is nice, the queue to go up will be longer. You can check their website for the estimate wait time. If weather is good, head out as early as you can to beat the traffic and cable car queue. Buy tickets online and it will save you some time. If you can't make it on the day the ticket was purchased for, it is valid for 7 days.
