By reaching the top of Table Mountain, either by foot through Kirstenbosch Botanic Gardens or at the side of the mountain. At the top of the mountain you will be able to see the Atlantic Ocean and on a clear day even the Indian Ocean. The whole of the CBD area, harbor and various suburbs. The vegetation on the mountain... More

We hiked up Platteklip gorge on a very hot day, we started our hike at 8:20 but in hindsight would have gone close to 6:30. It was over 30 degrees by 9:00 so we were glad to have packed plenty of water. Overall it took us 2 hours to reach the top but the effort was well worth it. You... More

Wow, the uneven table at the top.The view and smell of nature. All efforts made to give as much natural experience possible without exposing nature too much. Well done.

Spectacular views. Scary climb by cableway! Plan to spend there at least half a day (lines to cableway, walk at summit). Take warm clothes: if cloud nearby it will become very cold very quickly. Dassies-small animals are everywhere, will let you to follow them to make pictures. Indeed one of 7 wonders of Nature

If your lucky the sky will be blue and the mists will have gone so that you can see great views across the Cape. You can also see Robins island from here.
