This one has been on my bucket list for ten years and on my third attempt the weather was finally on my side. Spectacular views over Cape Town and the Bay. The walk on top of the Table Mountain is breathtaking as well. Highly recommended but make sure you book your ticket online in advance.

Table Mountain

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

Reviewed By 811michael - United Kingdom

We visited the stunningly beautiful Table Mountain. The cable ride to the top of the mountain was great fun with some absolutely incredible views, and once we were on top of The Table Mountain it was like stepping into heaven as you are lost for words on the breathtaking views and the amazing surrounds. Visiting Table Mountain and witnessing the majestic views was like being on the edge of space and seeing the beautiful clear blue sky on the horizon and all the beautiful areas and the coastline in the distances was just an experience we will never forget. Me, my wife and our daughter had the most amazing experience as the views and the surrounds made us feel like being lost, but in the right direction. This was without a doubt one of the highlights of our incredible South African holiday.

Reviewed By becs673 - Totnes, United Kingdom

We could not recommend this tour highly enough. Our guides Angie and Fred took us to four different wine producers for tastings all of which were in beautiful surroundings with wine experts to advise us. But more than this the whole day was filled with invaluable information about the region and South Africa in general. We also went to the town of Stellenbosch and had some other additional stop overs which were fabulous. We really felt that Angie and Fred treated us as friends rather then ‘clients’ and we travelled round in luxury in their spacious car. We got so much more out of going round the winelands with experts - going on our own would not have compared.

Victoria & Alfred Waterfront

The V&A Waterfront is a 123-hectare mixed-use destination, and one of Africa’s most visited cultural and historical hubs. Set on the edge of a natural, historic working harbour with the iconic Table Mountain as its backdrop, it offers local and international visitors a cosmopolitan mix of experiences ranging from leisure, shopping and exclusive entertainment. It also offers prime residential and commercial property. The prime positioning of the V&A Waterfront boasts sweeping views of the ocean, city bowl and mountain peaks. Up to 100 000 people visit every day during peak season. Contributing R259.1 billion in nominal terms to the South African economy over the last twelve years, the V&A Waterfront’s cumulative contribution to the provincial GGP since 2002 was over R227 billion. The property also reported a 19% increase in retail trade sales for 2014, marking four consecutive years of consistent growth since 2011. By end 2014, total visitor numbers to the property had grown to 24 million a year. Although the V&A Waterfront remains South Africa’s favourite attraction for international visitors, they account for only 23% of all visitors. Visits by locals increased to 63%, while 14% of visitors were from upcountry. With 22 official landmarks on-site, it is also part of South Africa’s historical legacy. Jointly owned by Growthpoint Properties Limited and the Government Employees Pension Fund (GEPF), represented by the Public Investment Corporation Limited (PIC), the V&A Waterfront was developed in 1988 by the state-owned transport corporation, Transnet Limited, while official commercial trading commenced in November 1990.

This is a very picturesque part of the Cape Town waterfront featuring a working harbour, museums, hotels, restaurants and shops. Some of the craft stalls sell an interesting range of local products - not much tourist tat evident,thankfully.

Just up Kloof Nek Road from the center of town is this thriving beach community. Plenty of trendy nightclubs, shops and cafes bring diners and shoppers, while tranquil seas and fine white sand draw sun worshippers and swimmers.

Platteklip Gorge

Reviewed By Minna K - Vaasa, Finland

Highly recommended, was worth the hike. The hike was the best part of the table mountain visit and I feel like I would have missed out so much if we took the Cable Car up and down. There was many others walking it up and down so you dont need to be alone. Bring enough water and proper shoes.

Abseil Africa

Awesome views surround this rappelling experience into vertical space from atop Table Mountain. A must for true adventurers and thrill seekers.

Reviewed By Keith2413 - Selby, United Kingdom

Never I thought I’d do abseil from Table Mountain at the age of 68 but after Reading people’s reviews on trip advisor, decided to give it a go. The whole set up is run with professionalism. After a 15 minute briefing I was ready to go. When I first went over the first part of the mountain, although I felt safe, my heart was in my mouth. After the first 50 or so metres the face disappeared and I was suspended in mid air. Had a quick look around and lowered myself down. It was the biggest thrill of my life. The instructors were brilliant throughout. Asked if I wanted to walk back up following a marked trail which was easy to follow. That was a mistake for me. I would say you need to be quite fit to walk back up. Advice is take plenty of water and take your time. It took me around 40 minutes and I knew I’d done it. Overall I would like to say a big thankyou to abseil Africa. Brilliant is the only way I can describe this experience.

Lion's Head

Reviewed By Chene-Taljaard - Cape Town, South Africa

Lion's Head is an incredible mountain to hike with 360-degree views of Cape Town. You cannot miss this one when visiting Cape Town but you need to be moderately fit as it starts with a steep incline and then steps.
