Climbed a the way up via paterklip gorge, a bit strep but doable in less than 2 hours. The views from the top were fantastic. On the way down took the cable car but was too packed to enjoy. Little tip, take lots of water and sunscreen.

If it is windy the cable cars do not run .It's a good idea to check if it is windy before you go .The cable cars take 65 people so if in a queue you don t have to wait to long

If you are in the mother city and the day is clear do not miss the opportunity to go up the mountain. The views are breathtaking.

We were lucky enough to be on the top of Table Mountain, when there were no clouds. The views are spectacular and the concrete pathways make the going easy. You can easily spend hours walking around.

Table Mountain National Park covers huge ground and there is a lot to explore. The scenery is stunning, the landscapes are beautiful and the air is crisp, clear and laced with the scent of the local vegetation. My highlights include Table Mountain, Lion’s Head and Signal Hill, Boulders Beach, any one of the numerous hiking trails across the Park and... More

Definitely worth a trip to go... its ideal to schedule it on the 1st day of yr itinerary as the cable car might get cancelled due to the weather conditions. Advise to book the ticket in advance online.

Just don't go on a weekend, or in the middle of a sunny day!! The queues are so long with little shade. Once up its very good, marvellous views - if the day is clear of course, & efficient restaurant.

We made it to the top, spur of the moment. It was closed a few days we were there due to wind. Went midday after 1pm no lines. Fantastic views!!. Do not miss this when in CapeTown.

Highly recommended, even if you only take the aerial cableway and spend a short time at the Table Mountain. We had a wonderful experience whereby the weather changed in a second, and we were immersed in a dense fog in just about a few minutes. Views from the mountain are great, walk around a bit to look at the city... More

Worth getting tickets prior via the Red hop-on-off bus at it saves the queue at the box office. Bit of a wait to get to the top but well worth the views. Normally quite windy.
