Table Mountain: Cape Town’s Iconic Backdrop

The iconic Table Mountain is easily the most recognisable natural feature of Cape Town and one of the seven natural wonders of the world. With its flat top covered in rolling clouds (the tablecloth) this is a must-see for any tour of Cape Town. As part of the greater Table Mountain National Park that starts at Signal Hill (next to Table Mountain) and extends all the way to Cape Point which is the most South-westerly point of Africa, the mountain is covered with fynbos which only occurs naturally in the Western Cape and is the smallest (by area) floral kingdom in the world.

There are a number of trails that lead to the summit of the mountain and none of them should be attempted without the pre-requisite safety precautions. For those who do not wish to walk up the mountain there is always the cableway. The cable cars can take up to sixty-five passengers at a time and rotate in a full circle allowing an unparalleled view of the city and its surroundings as you journey upwards. Upon reaching the summit there are restaurants, rest facilities and viewpoints.

Due to its topography you can easily saunter from one side of the summit to the next. This will allow you to take in views of the CBD, Robben Island and the harbor on one side, Camps Bay on another and the spine of the nature reserve on the south side. Up here it is possible to find ancient sea-shells from the time the region was under the sea.

The city-facing side of the mountain is lit up during summer months providing a beautiful backdrop to one of the world’s most recognisable destinations.
