South Africa | Cape Town | Table Mountain | Atlantic Ocean | Twelve Apostles | Hiking | Cable Car | Panoramic Views | Nature
With hiking, natural beauty and amazing views of both the Atlantic Ocean, surrounding mountains and the city below, Table Mountain is one of Cape Town's most visited sites. At an elevation of over 3,500 feet, the sandstone mountain has a fairly flat top making hiking on the summit something that many people enjoy. Getting to the top is another story! While hiking up is possible for those who are fit, there is also a cable car (that's been in operation for nearing 100 years) available for those who prefer the easy way up!

When you have a choice of ways to reach the top of a mountain, do you usually choose to hike or would you ride a cable car?
When researching things to do in Cape Town, South Africa, no matter what "must do" list we read or who we asked, Table Mountain was a unanimous choice. After spending much of our afternoon riding the cable car and hiking around the top, it's easy to understand why!
And if travel is like love, it is, in the end, mostly because it's a heightened state of awareness, in which we are mindful, receptive, undimmed by familiarity and ready to be transformed. That is why the best trips, like the best love affairs, never really end. - Pico Iyer
