South Africa. Its aerial tramway whisks visitors up the namesake precipice for a view that seems to stretch to Antarctica. Or head south to the Cape Peninsula and the Cape of Good Hope, once a major milestone for sailors and now a good place to see antelope or zebras, or watch for passing whales. Visitors love Boulders Beach, where a large colony of African penguins waddle their time away.

I did the platteklip gorge, definitely not easy. Go early and bring a lot of water. The whole way up to the top is beautiful!

Better than Rio's Sugarloaf, visiting Cape Town without going to Table Mountain is like visiting San Francisco without seeing the Golden Gate Bridge. Walk among the clouds and enjoy a 360 degree view that includes the city, ocean and surrounding mountains.

Table Mountain is a must for anyone visiting Cape Town, as it is iconic. The trip in the lift is an adventure in itself, offering stupendous views of the city. Once up there you can walk as far as as feels comfortable, soaking up the scenery, and feeling glad to be alive in such a wonderful setting!

Take the cable car or walk up (will take about 2 hours and is tough)! On top of the mountain you have a beautiful view over Cape Town and their is a lovely little walk though Fynbos (indigenous vegetation). This is a very wind dependent activity and we advice you to check the weather forecast a few days before your planning to visit.

A must see while you're here. Take the cable car, or if you're feeling energetic, choose one of the spectacular walks.

What an amazing experience! Table mountain is by far the most amazing attraction as it overlooks the whole of Capetown.

Iconic and a must see from above. To look down on Cape Town is a moment you will never forget. Be sure to take your camera's.

Table Mountain had to be one of my favorite parts of Cape Town! Not only is the view beautiful, but it's a fun hike around the mountain. I'd definitely suggest packing a picnic for the sunset!

Table Mountain in Cape Town is one of the official New 7 Wonders of Nature. You can take a cable car to get to the top, or you can choose from many different routes to climb to the 1000 metre peak.

Everything from the cable car ride to the hiking at the top of Table Mountain is awesome. Such an incredible spot and a must see when you're in Cape Town. Helpful Tip: Have your hotel buy your passes for the mountain before you go up. You'll save a ton of time waiting in line if you buy your tickets online/have your hotel snag them for you.

Table Mountain dominates Cape Town's skyline and it'll be a shame if you don't head over there. You can hike or take the cableway up. Either way, you are guaranteed magnificent views of Cape Town and the surrounding areas. Simply stunning!

Worth reiterating that this is the single biggest cant-miss attraction of Cape Town. The views, the cable car, even seeing the Hyraxs that occupy the cliffs, everything is awesome!

The symbol of Cape Town, Africa's 'Mother City', the 1000-meter plateau of Table Mountain looms over CT like a prehistoric giant, and the sight of clouds spilling off its flat peak in the twilight, high above the city, might just be the thing that makes you fall in love with Cape Town. With a nifty cable-car offering fabulous views out over Lion's Head peak, the city, and the Atlantic, you don't need to lace up your hiking boots to take in the spectacular views, but if you're feeling even the least bit active, the 1.5 hour one-way trek to the top from the lower cable-car station via Platteklip Gorge is one of the world's best 'city hikes': rugged, with stunning views.

Officially the world's third largest urban park (behind the Bosque de la Primavera in Mexico and the Serra da Cantareira in Brazil's São Paulo). However, it's not a single, continuous area running between Signal Hill in the north, to Cape Point in the south. Much of this is punctuated by roads and homes - not to mention mountains. While Table Mountain itself is a huge draw for tourists, my favourite section is at its southernmost tip, also known as the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve. Just be careful of those baboons - no joking, they can be seriously vicious.

A fan of heights? Jump in the Cableway to the top of Table Mountain in South Africa and sweep your bride-to-be off her feet with an unrivalled view across Cape Town, the peaks and the vast ocean. If you want to propose a little closer to the ground, head to the long, whitesand Bloubergstrand Beach for a Table Mountain-backdrop to remember.

Fantastic views over Cape Town. The lift rotates on the way up and down, so enables you to see everything. You can also trek up and down.

Many people assume the national park is only the mountain standing over Cape Town, but the park extends farther south, all the way to Cape Point. There are short or multi-day hikes, gorgeous views, and baboon and ostrich sightings.

I just wish I could have spent more time up there. Awesome view, crazy plants, and fun trails for exploring.

With its particular shape and the breathtaking view over the city and the ocean, this is one of the most fantastic places I have ever seen. Up on the table there is an incredible ecosystem that left me in awe. Loved it.

Table Mountain is a must-do if you're visiting Cape Town. The iconic rock is a lot of fun for both hikers and sightseers. If you're up for a challenge, you can take one of several trails up the mountain that range from moderate to more difficult ones that even include a bit of rock climbing.
If you just want to enjoy the amazing view, there is a cable way that can take you to the top and then down again. What I usually do is climb up, have a bite to eat or a cup of coffee at the cafe on the summit, and then take the cable car down.If you're really feeling adventurous you can even abseil the cliff face.
