Table Mountain in Cape Town, South Africa is a must for any visitor and provides breath taking views over the city and its beaches. The panorama stretches from Table Bay to False Bay and around the mountain to the Hout Bay Valley and Kommetjie.

On a clear day visitors are treated to a magnificent view across the Cape Flats to the Hottentots Holland Mountains. Cable car rides take a mere six minutes to reach the top and around 600,000 visitors travel to the summit on an annual basis. On the summit there is a restaurant and a souvenir shop, from which letters bearing the Table Mountain postmark can be sent. Short walks may be taken from the cable-station, and the flora that may be seen in the different seasons, makes it an essential trip for nature lovers.

Climbing to the summit is possible but it is recommended that you travel with someone experienced due to the difficulty of this venture, expert guides can easily be arranged to allow you to do this safely while enjoying the beautiful scenery along the way.
