This place never ceases to impress. From the cable car ride up, the views from the top and the actual magnitude of the mountain. Lovely cafe at the top serves top notch food/cake and coffee and the local hyraxes are quite cute too

Even though bad weather at the time we had a nice coffee and cake at the top of Table Mountain and managed to get some nice pictures of the Dassies.

Disappointing experience today. The aerial cableway was closed quite reasonably due to high winds - the strength of the winds was forecast when I checked the weather yesterday. So I left it til this morning to book online, aware that the service is weather dependent....More

When you get to the top, there is a machine in the cable car house where you can buy a one-way ticket down. The hike up takes about 2 hrs, so take plenty of water.
