Our first glimpse of the Table Mountain was from our hotel. It appeared completely flat. As flat as a table top! When we were on the Table Mountain, we saw of rise and fall of the mountain landscapes. It's not as flat as we thought. But, what a view on a clear sunny day! Beautiful! Don't rush when you visit....

A beautiful park with stunning scenery. The top gives incredible views of Cape Town below. There are hiking trails and also a cable car. Weather and winds are decisive of the cable car running or not...and the lines can be very long on a sunny day.

Exceptional views of Cape Town and surrounding areas -- very friendly staff. Purchase cable car tickets in advance but wait wasn't too bad if you get there early. Lots of flora and other vegetation. Is a great place to hike also. Definitely a 10 in my book!

Great place for the view and the free guides are wonderful. Went twice (the first time a little cloudy and one free afternoon is was sunny so went back).. If it is a little cloudy and it is your only chance to go, do it. It is still amazing

Wildlife and stunning views all around you. Do not miss a beautiful sunset, yet be aware at the cable car hours. Rest, walk and take a breath of fresh air into the clouds.

The calecar up the mountain has fabulous views of Cape Town. The trails on the mountain are well mantained, the flowers and sunbirds are amazing. There are toilets, and gift shop on the top.

Lovely walk in Newlands Forest with numerous Jeep Tracks as well as footpaths. Have a walk or Hike of any length. Paths not marked but the Mountain helps you orientate yourself. Stop at one of the streams to cool of and have a picnik.

Chose your time carefully to ensure that firstly there is no mist covering the mountain and that the queue for the cable car is not hours long. Once you are at the top the views are stunning, although the actual mountain top is a little disappointing. However if you go to Cape Town you have to do it!

Platteklip Gorge is the most popular hiking route up the mountain, and it starts directly at the cable car station at the bottom. According to the national park's own website, the advice is to walk in groups of 4 or more to reduce vulnerability to muggings that happen occasionally on trails in the national park. However on two ascents the... More
