A must see if you are in Cape town. Hiking the mountain is also an exciting experience. It's better to visit when its not windy, cloudy or raining. There is a restaurant at the top and the views are amazing. Definitely a must do.

You can’t honestly come to Capetown without coming to this famous National park. It’s so worth it. I hiked which I love doing and it was so worth it.

Table Mountain National Park is well kept, organised, and felt safe to visit. We've hiked to both Table Mountain and Lions Head and had a lovely experience. There are plenty of trails to explore and the nature is stunning.

Great hike, took us 4 hours and we rode the cable car down. Best Ice Cream ever at the top and the views were amazing.

If you are visiting Cape Town you are not looking for reviews to tell you to go as you are going to go so here are some tips. Go as soon as you arrive as it closes for long periods due to weather conditions, we stayed for 5 nights and it was only open fully for around 40% of our... More
