Funny that I have listed Table Mountain as the first things to do tip!
It was, in fact the last thing that we saw on the morning we drove out of Cape Town! Why? I hear you say, well Table Mountain is quite often covered by the famous "Table Cloth", this means that this piece of cloud covers the top of the table and so you cant see anything!
Often the cable car up is closed due to strong winds, so you have to time your trip exactly right!

The views from the top are nothing short of spectacular - you can look down the peninula, see the Atlantic and Indian oceans in one go! Look all over the city at the skyscrapers, harbour, residential areas, parks etc etc......the views are amazing it is well worth the trip up there.

Getting up there-
As I said you can take a cable car which is what the majority of people do, the cablecars revolve so no need to try and squeeze yourself into the perfect position!
My friend actually climbed Table Mountain! He is a strong, fit man let me tell you! But this is also a popular thing to do for the more fitter among us!
Yep - I took the cable car!
