This place is beautiful. We climbed up using the Plattaklip gorge and took the cable car down. It is not a walk in the park but we did it in 2 hours, we went really slow as I took a number of photos. As you...More

Visit Table Mountain anyway you wish, just make sure you visit it. I hiked up through Plattarklip Gorge, my husband took the cable care. We then meandered amongst the many pathways on the "table" top. The weather was perfect, a brilliant half day.

Voted one of the modern wonders of the world (oddly sponsored by Visa, with signage everywhere), it gives a tremendous view of the city, ocean, and surroundings. Lots of walking paths (and over 100 hiking trails for the more adventuresome). The tram is a very...More

It's really well worth why the Table Mountain National Park is considered the most important touristic attraction in Cape Town! It is astonishing! We did a half-day visit at the top, but there are several trails up there where one can really spend a whole...More

We went up Table Mountain on a sunny morning and it was a glorious time to visit this amazing site. You really must see it if you come to Cape Town. You feel the age of the Mother City, and get a chance to see...More

Buy your ticket online ahead of time. You can buy on the day but the line system is frustrating and time consuming. Just because you go up the stairs and into the building don't think your queueing is over... 64 fit in the gondola which...More

A must see when visiting Cape Town. Take a cable car up to have a great view of the city. Give yourself plenty of time as the line for the cable car drive could be long.

You can combine the walk to the top with the cable car on your way down. Different vantage points to enjoy the views of the city. Ensure weather conditions are good before attempting the climb.

My fifth time up the mountain though this was the first time with my wife. We really enjoyed the walks that seem to go on forever and some really great views. Honey pot is obviously the visitors centre and short walks, but if you walk...More

Hi I will be going for a business trip to Johannesburg in May 2017. I would also like to join the safari package in Kruger Park. How many days package should I select? My kids love animals. After my business meeting in Johannesburg, I plan to visit Cape Town. How many days do you recommend to stay in order to cover all the interesting places? I was planning for 3 days. Also, would you recommend that I stay in city centre? Is public transport easily accessible?

Hi we are visiting SA for 8 days later this month and Table Mountain is high on the list of must do's. However our time in Cape Town is limited and we only have 2 full days. Typically how long should I allow to do this trip? Thanks in advance.

You could make up and be down again within 2,5 hrs. If you climb efficiently (few stops) and go down with the cable car not long after you reach the top, that should work. If you have 2 days, i suggest you also take the... More
