Table mountain has some of the most amazing 360 degree views. View the Atlantic or Indian oceans, coastal communities and the north of South Africa. You can get off the beaten path for a very cool and challenging hike. This is a must do in Cape Town.

Really great trip. We took the cableway up and down and walked a bit on the top. The view was stunning. We saw some of the native animals at the top.

Table Mountain is wonderful. I did a Free hike with BAZ BUS and the guide Mike. The views are breathtaking. The best time to go is in the morning when it is not so hot and take the cable car down! Cape Town is tops, I cannot wait to ocme back!!

Nice place to visit brought tickets when we got there went straight to cable car. The views are Lovely but it is very cold at the top so make sure you cover up. At the top you can visit the cafe and have a nice meal with a drink. Enjoyed my time here.

Table mountain is a must visit site while visiting Cape Town. You'll be treated to amazing views of the city along with amazing sites on top of the mountain. We rode the cable way car up and down the mountain but if your feeling adventurous, you can hike up and or down the mountain. I'd suggest pre paying for the... More

We hiked up and down Platteklip Gorge and really enjoyed it. The hike was intense with steep bolder steps the whole way. It took us 1.5hours to reach the summit at a fairly strong pace. Take lots of water and leave early before it heats up as even in winter the climbing in sunshine will get hot! We met a... More
