The Table Mountain aerial cableway takes you straight to the top of Table Mountain where you can explore the wonderful summit. However, as you glide along, 1089 meters above Cape Town, you’ll soon realise that witnessing the stunning aerial views is an experience itself. So even if you plan to hike the mountain, it’s worth considering the cable car trip too. Plus, the cable cars are the perfect choice for those unable to hike, or require wheelchair access.
Experience an Audio Tour
Sometimes sightseeing can mean so much more with a little extra insight. Which is why we highly recommend you make the most of the free audio tours, where you can unearth the incredible stories and legends of Table Mountain whilst standing in that exact spot. There are even two Table Mountain audio tours you can download onto your smart phone beforehand, or if you forget, there’s free Wi-Fi so you can easily download them once you’re there. You can find all the information you need to do so here.
Plan a Hike
If you’re planning on hiking Table Mountain you’ll be pleased to know that there are options and routes to suit everyone. While some routes are just for walking, you will still be able to enjoy the unusual wildlife, with over 1460 different types of plants. For those seeking a more challenging hike, which may require scrambling or rope work, there are higher grades of walks available. Further details on the different types of Table Mountain hikes can be found here.
Watch the Sunset
If you’re spending the day at Table Mountain make sure you stick around for the sunset, because trust us – it will be worth it. Watching the South African sunset is the ultimate view from Table Mountain, and will be the perfect end to an amazing day.
Abseil Back Down
Not many people can say they have abseiled down Table Mountain, so if you’re feeling brave why not give it a go? For thrill seekers or even those looking to push their own boundaries, it would be a fantastic achievement to say you have abseiled down this amazing landmark and it will provide you with unique and wonderful memories of your South African trip.

The organisation and communication were first class. The flexibility in travelling to the destination was impressive and the hotels where we stayed in were all of a good standard. Our Coach was driven by Ken, who was a character and nothing was too much for him.
Mr & Mrs Hall, Magnificent New Zealand
We both enjoyed the Magnificent New Zealand holiday immensely. The Coach Driver/Tour Guide was excellent and the hotels were really comfortable. The holiday was extremely good value and I would recommend it to anyone waning to taste the Antipodean holiday experience.
