South Africa Things to Do: 726 reviews and 1,118 photos
Table Mountain is Cape Town's most famous landmark and one of the city's greatest attractions. There are over 100 scenic ways to climb the mountain, which stands at 1086 metres above sea level, but most people take the revolving cable car which whisks you to the top in a just a few minutes. The views in all directions are magnificent and the feeling of being on top of the world is what makes this such a popular destination. It’s best to visit on a clear day, though a tablecloth of clouds can descend at any time, flowing over the edge like a breaking wave.
The mountain is part of a nature reserve and wooden walkways and designated paths allow you to wander around without damaging the unique plant life. Excellent food, refreshments and ice creams are available.
Be warned that it can get very cold up there, so bring a jacket. Maps of the mountain with designated hiking routes are available.
