Directions to Table Mountain
A trip to Cape Town is not complete without going up Table Mountain, and while there are numerous rewarding ways to hike up this impressive peak, and nothing quite beats the views that await you from a helicopter flight high above the mountain, but the Table Mountain Cableway is still a must-do when in the Mother City.
Table Mountain is world renowned, standing at its highest point 1,085 metres above sea level, the views and scenery up there is nothing less than sensational. The Cable cars hold around 65 people and the floor of the cars revolve, so each passenger receives a full panoramic view of the city on the way to the top.
The top station stands on the Western end of the mountain affording visitors magnificent views over the city, Robben Island out to sea, Camps Bay, the rest of the mountain, and the Twelve Apostles. There is an abundance of photo opportunities, a restaurant open throughout the day and a souvenir shop.
If you want to explore the mountain further there are numerous walks of varying lengths available once on the top - just around the top station there is over 2km of pathways to follow which will give you views over Cape Town, Table Bay, Robben Island, the Cape Flats and the Cape Peninsula. For those wanting to explore a little further there are many longer walks available. It is advisable that you take a map with you, stay on the paths, and where possible to be in a group for safety reasons.

Another remarkable factor about Table Mountain is the extra-ordinary floral biodiversity. Table Mountain alone has more species of plants that can be seen on it that the entire British Isles, with more than 1,500 species, and is the richest single floristic area in the entire world.
To date more than 19 million visitors have taken a trip up Table Mountain, and we highly recommend you join them!
