When its a special birthday, and you husband says we're going up a mountain today your heart drops a little. Though how wrong could I be. It was the most breathtaking amazing place I'd ever been to. From the drive through some beautiful countryside to being told I had to do a cable car ride to get to the top... More

Everything you read about the spectacular views are true, simply beautiful. Be prepared to queue to get on the cable car as there are only two. The car revolves inside so dont hang on to the sides otherwise there is the potential for people to fall like nearly happened on our journey! Take a jacket no matter how hot it... More

Stunning views and a very nice hike up the mountain. We had perfect weather conditions in September, not too hot and clear blue skies.

My friend and I decided to hike to the top, instead of taking the cable car. The hike skirted the base of the mountain, then climbed steeply up a ravine. We had not brought enough water, but there is some available at the top. It was a very intense hike, and took several hours to complete, but it was definately... More

We had to wait a few days to go up the mountain due to high winds, but it was well worth the wait Be prepared for lineups but they move fairly quickly and the staff are very efficient and friendly The cable car does not take long and the views are breath taking It was a clear sunny day so... More

Imagine you are high in the sky, all you see is mountain and ocean, its incredible. Using the gondolas to get us to the summit of Table Mountain is a must do. They rotate around and give you 360 degree views of the whole of Cape Town, as you ride to the top. The lines to get in may be... More

You probably know that Table Mountain is a must go in Cape Town; so I will not be repetitive. What you need to know before you go is: Book tour ticket online to avoid lines; Go for the sunset, it is half off and views are amazing Avoid taxi drivers, they will overcharge you; take Uber! Enjoy your visit! 👍

The day I was there the cable car was cancelled cause of heavy winds. I just walked up the mountain and enjoyed the heavy winds and amazing views. The bus transit to the top is free which is good. Beautiful experience and a must if you are visiting cape town.

Went up Table Mountain today for my Birthday, if you are a South African citizen you get to go up for free. You do have to collect your free ticket on your birthday with your ID book which is valid for a week if the cable station is closed on that day due to bad weather or maintenance. A return... More

Excellent views as the cable car rotates and moved to the top of the mountain. Views from the mountain are the best in the world. You could see the city of Cape Town, Robben Island and the beautiful ocean. Surrounding table are other smaller mountains. Speculator scenery envelopes you. Great spot fir postcard type photographs. Must see fir all international... More
