We visited Table Mountain on a beautiful day so we had great views on all sides. Nature on the top is great with various animals and flowers. A must when you are in Cape Town if it is not cloudy.

Booking your tickets online before you get there is a good idea, as you avoid any queues. We went up at around 15.00. The floor of the cable car rotates so you get a view point of both the vista below and the mountain side....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.
