About Table Mountain National Park

At the south-western tip of South Africa, in the beautiful city of Cape Town, the Table Mountain National Park encompasses the incredibly scenic Peninsula mountain chain stretching from Signal Hill in the north to Cape Point in the south, a distance of approximately 60 kilometres.

Did you know? The Table Mountain National Park has two world-renowned landmarks within its boundaries; the majestic Table Mountain and the legendary Cape of Good Hope.

The narrow portion of land with its many beautiful valleys, bays and beaches is circled by the waters of the Atlantic Ocean in the west and the warmer waters of False Bay in the east.

The Table Mountain National Park has two world-renowned landmarks within its boundaries; the majestic Table Mountain and the legendary Cape of Good Hope. Recognised globally for its extraordinarily rich, diverse and unique flora, this singular land formation, with rugged cliffs, steep slopes and sandy flats, is a truly phenomenal natural, scenic, historical, cultural and recreational asset both locally and internationally.

Nowhere else in the world does an area of such awesome beauty and such rich bio-diversity exist almost entirely within a metropolitan area - the thriving and cosmopolitan city of Cape Town.

The Table Mountain Aerial Cableway provides access to the top of Table Mountain, while a funicular carries visitors to Cape Point. Restaurants and curio shops operate at Rhodes Memorial, Kirstenbosch, Cape Point and on Table Mountain.

Scenic drives can be taken along Boyes Drive, Chapman’s Peak Drive, Victoria Road, the Ou Kaapse Weg, from Simon's Town to Smitswinkel Bay, from Kommetjie to Scarborough and to Cape Point.

Popular picnic spots are located at the Signal Hill lookout, The Glen, Van Riebeeck Park, Newlands Forest, Constantia Nek, Oudekraal, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, Tokai, Soetwater, Buffels Bay, Bordjiesrif, Miller's Point and Perdekloof.

Southern Right Whales entertain thousands of spectators each year as they come close to shore to mate and calve. Sightings peak in September, and there are a number of view sites along the scenic coastline and Boulders Beach is home to a growing colony of the African penguin.
