A visit to Cape Town would be incomplete without a trip up the famous Table Mountain which reaches a height of 1085m at its highest point and had a broad flat surface allowing it to appear as a 'table' from certain angles, inspiring its name.
The glorious views over the Mother City starts the minute you step into the state of the art cableway (one of only three in the world). The floor of the 65 passenger cablecar rotates 360 degrees on the ascent/descent which takes 5-10 minutes to reach the summit/base travelling at a speed of up to 10m per second. Undeniably the best views over the Cape are to be taken in from this natural landmark mountain which allows all parts of Cape Town to be seen at once in all magnificence.
The mountain itself serves as a nature reserve home to many indigenous plants and animals. On the top there are a selection of viewpoints over the peninsula and the paths suitable for all ranges of the explorer from the handicapped to the avid hiker, maps are available on site. There is a curio shop and full cafe for refreshments and meals on the top. The weather can change without notice so be sure to have sunscreen and hats as well as warm clothing and of course remember to take your camera.
