    Getting here was a bit complicated. We tried to save money and take the Citi bus but it dropped us far away. We landed up takin uber for the last 1km or so.

    We had not booked tickets so we stood in line (as per the ushers instruction) till we notices self-serve ATM like kiosk which we could use a cc to buy tickets. That saved us a lot of time.

    We had no wait and were up in jiffy.

    The cable car ride was nice and views were great.

    Very enjoyable visit. Can spend a couple of hours wandering and watching the penguins and birds. Beautiful setting. Great viewing of penguin nests, routes and colonies overall. Nice informative signage.

    We were fortunate to have the rains break. We had a lovely day for Table Mountain. Make reservations before you go! We took the funicular up the mountain and walked the vast area... beauty is everywhere! There is a cafe at the top and lots of trails to explore.

    Solitude and connecting to nature in an eco friendly and tastefully decorated and well designed chalet - a real gem in Cape Nature portfolio and offers so much to do from hiking, rafting, mtb or just restoring

    We drove to the top of Signal Hill to enjoy the beautiful sunset. Once at the summit, there was a carnival atmosphere. It was crowded and the overflow traffic (from the very small parking area) stretched far down the side to the road which caused a long wait/ traffic to get off the top after the sunset. Fortunately, we parked further down the road and avoided the worst of the traffic. As we were leaving, a lot of cars were still driving up towards the summit for after-dark activities.

    The gardens are easily accessible from Cape Town and on the route of the hop-on, hop-off bus. The gardens are incredible, sitting in a kind of bowl on the slope of the mountains. Perfect for a hike, sitting on the grass, or exploring the amazing flora. I took the free walking tour in the morning and it was like having a walk with David Attenborough, learning about the plants and discovering so much!
