Details van Table Mountain
Far more than just a mountain, Table Mountain has attracted more than 25 million visitors since it opened as a tourist attraction in 1929.
Its panoramic views of Cape Town and its surrounds are without a doubt its bigger drawcard, but there is more to the mountain than simply soaking in the vista. The Table Mountain Cable Car offers up stunning views en route to the mountaintop, where you can take in a 360 degree view of the city, Table Bay, and the rest of the national park.
The more adventurous can choose to take guided or unguided hikes along the mountain's three hiking trails, and abseiling is also on offer.
For those with kids or with less adventurous tastes, a restaurant, WiFi lounge, and a number of boutique stores also offer something to do.
