Table Mountain

The mountain in the middle of Cape Town offers many hikes and magnificent views in all directions.

Reviewed By paul19602013 - Brighton, United Kingdom

One of the highlights of our trip with amazing views over the city and further a field.Some choose the option to hike which takes 2 hours to do but we opted for the cable car. Be aware of the cloud so dont leave the visit to the end of the holiday in case its cloudy. Once at the top apart from the amazing views there is plenty to do including hiking trails, free walking tours , restaurant, waterworks and you can even abseil down the mountain.A must visit place if in Cape town.

Reviewed By kt577 - Brooklyn, United States

This hike is awesome, but is sold as the ‘easiest’ hike on Table Mountain, and maybe that’s true but it’s definitely not easy. Start early, sunrise or shortly after - if it’s a sunny / hot day you are in direct sun the entire hike without really any shade coverage. Bring 1 liter of water / person then fill up your bottle or buy more at the top. Eat before or bring snacks .... there’s also food at the top. This is a strenuous hike, a constant uphill and not suitable for children or the elderly. This took us about 4 hours including an hour spent at the top; and we are two people in our 30s who are very active.

Cape of Good Hope

Reviewed By GillM434 - Poole, United Kingdom

We hired a car to drive down to Cape Point ourselves, so that we could stop off whenever we saw something interesting. This was a good move but the exorbitant price of entry into the Cape National Park as a tourist came as a shock. Not sure it's a good message to send to visitors -you have to pay three times what a South African pays to visit this natural site of beauty. Anyway, Cape of Good Hope is awesome. The road is not particularly well signposted so watch out for it, on the right. It leads along the most spectacular bay called Dias Bay with white white sand and crashing surf and then there is the craggy Cape, the most south westerly point of the African continent. Breath taking. If you go back to the main road and continue to Cape Point it's much more touristy but still worth the views and the baboons which frequent the car park.

Cape Point

Breathtaking views and amazing scenery of the end of the world. The walk up to the lighthouse can be tough for elderly so for them I would recommend taking the funicular.
