Providing a majestic backdrop to the city of Cape Town, Table Mountain is one of the world's most striking natural wonders and South Africa's most recognised icon. No visit to Cape Town can be complete without making the trek to the top. The Mountain towers over Cape Town and Table Bay, its presence is tangible throughout the Cape Peninsula. On top of the Mountain you may wander along a myriad of pathways or enjoy a drink or snack at the restaurant / coffee shop.There`s also a small shop for memorabilia. Make sure to take a wind-proof jacket along as it can become quite chilly on top of the mountain even when it is very hot at the lower cable way station.
