We hired a cab (Excite taxis are the cheapest) to transport us to the start of the "Platteklip Gorge" trail. You can do this route on your own without a guide. It takes about 1.5-2 hours depending on your fitness level. Bring lots of water and sunscreen. It is a beauty view on the way up and a good accomplishment once you reach the top. A nice shop/cafe is at the top as well. You can take the cable car if needed but its not the same experience in my view.

Best of a sunny and low wind day. Best to be flexible when planning your visit to Cape Town.

Spotted a family of hyrax (small mammals).

A must see in Cape Town. The panorama is spectacular and the facilities are very good as well. Unfortunately we bought the british weather with us so didn't get the full spectacle you would get in the sunshine!

A trip up Table Mountain is worth the queue and the ticket price. The cable car ride is surely one of the best in the world with a revolving floor in the cabin. The walks on the top of the mountain are great and the viewing decks offer breathtaking views of Cape Town.
For the more adventurous, a climb up the mountain is very rewarding but this should never be undertaken alone. Weather in Cape Town is unpredictable.

Rotating cable car cabin is really great and gives everyone a good view on the way up and down. Views are amazing but be warned - it is cold up there!! Take a sweater and a windproof layer. Go early in the morning for better visibility.
