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.
Cape Town is splendid�it�s a breathtaking city. The view of the mountain and the sea is phenomenal. In Cape Town you find everything- from wildlife to city life. The city boasts the most amazing scenery in Africa.
Cape Town has one of the most delicious sea food cuisines�even the French can learn a thing or two from Capetonians.
Come to Cape Town and experience the beauty of this city �take a drive through the wine farms, climb Table Mountain, visit the beautiful Knysna and Robin Island. It is only then that you�ll understand why Cape Town is Africa�s tourist capital.
We took a visit to Table Mountain two years ago and loved it! There was a lot of money involved, but the view at the top was gorgeous. Being experienced climbers, we climbed to the top on foot. The climb was not extremely difficult, but we had a rough time. All I need to say is it was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.
Its like being on top of the world.... breathtaking views, i had the clear day one minute and the table cloth the next, a fantastic trip.... so much so that i've booked up again, 1 year to the day that i last went..........
I like this mountain. From there, you get a good view of much of Cape Town. Unfortunately, there was an accident on the day I visited the place (Sunday Aug. 2, 2007) I advice everyone visiting not to take anything for granted, just be well prepared, in case you wanted a manual climb. I was told accidents were uncommon.
I will definitely visit this place again and again!
There is tranquility; enjoyed nature and I could view Cape Town and the sea from the mountain top. The view is wonderful.
I don't like the winds which can be very strong at times and also when its very cloudy because one cannot have access to the mountain.
THe time I've spent in South Afirca was well worth the 18 hour flight from Pittsburgh. The sites and atmosphere are fantastic, blending clutures and breath taking scenary. The shopping and night life in Capetown rival any European city and the dining is some of the best I've had in the world. I look forward to my next trip to S.A.
