Table Mountain is "the" must see activity in Cape Town. But instead of taking the cable car like all other tourists, walk up! It's looks quite high, but it only takes about 2 hours!
If you don't know the mountain I advise you to take Platteklipp Gorge. That's the easiest way to find but pretty hard to walk up because there are many steps.
On top the view is fantastic! And it makes you feel good when you walked all the way up and look down to the cable car station... amazing that you started down there only a few hours ago...
