  • 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

  • Great. A table indeed. How amazing the work of God is. So flat. There is a cafe and a shop on the mountain. The cable car takes three minutes to go up but for those that are daring you can climb up and down. Great place to bring family and friends
  • Amazing views. Fresh air. Mountains and sea side. What more do you need? More things to see personally. It was really pretty much perfect.
  • Iconic, darling. Just ICONIC!! There are sooo many ways to skin this cat. What I mean is... if you have time on your side and just a little fitness then you can take one of he MANY hiking trails to the summit. If you’re not able to hike then by all means take the cable car. The most popular and easiest way to the top is Platteklip Gorge. But if you dare take one of the less congested trails,you will not be disappointed. The flora and fauna on these less popular routes is astonishing and you’ll even encounter a mountain goat or 5 along the way up. Just be safe and have someone who’s a pro help navigate the terrain. For safety reasons, the cable car does not go up on windy days; which also means that other staff who work up there cannot make it up. Found ourselves in one such predicament on a cold and windy winter’s day and was lucky enough to find that they keep blankets in the cabinets in the bathrooms for such occurrences.
  • Worth doing but hold in to your children. The place is safe but there are plenty of little walls they can climb up and fall. I really recommend to hold them all the time if they're anything like our wild bunch. We loved the views. Do bring your own binoculars birds and mamals to be observed. Not crowded off season but I heard it's full in high season. The price is quite high checks on line for details. The world is home ;)
  • The most stunning of views from a wonderful rocky landscape. U can stay on established tracks or wander off and enjoy the serenity or vask views looking over Cape Town and surrounds. Views to the North, South East and West. A wonderful wifi cafe perched on a cliff edge watching the sun set is a perfect way to end a trip to Table mountain. A most highly recommended place to visit!!
