This majestic sandstone mountain is undoubtedly Cape Town's most well known and well loved landmark. Its flat "table top" stretches for three kilometers and is flanked by Devil's Peak on one side and Lion's Head on the other. When a south-easterly wind blows, the top is obscured by a large white tablecloth of cloud that pours over the steep northern face. The Table Mountain Reserve is home to an impressive range of indigenous flora, including many endemic species. The mountain is a treat for hikers, climbers and amblers with over 550 well-established paths. Be well prepared when setting out on a hike since the mountain is known for her mood swings and the weather can change dramatically in a short space of time. For the less energetic there is the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway which does a single rotation on the five-minute ascent/descent giving passengers a panoramic view. At the summit cable station is a restaurant, souvenir shop and viewing platforms where you can see fat, furry das sies (rock rabbits) lazing in the sun.
