Table Mountain is to Cape Town what the Eiffel Tower is to Paris — a spectacularly striking landmark that defines and dominates our cityscape. No wonder The Telegraph declared it one of The World’s Most Beautiful Mountains.
At just over a kilometre tall, the 500-million-year-old behemoth is best experienced from the top, where you can marvel at the sprawling city cosseted between ocean and sky.
Yet, despite being one of Cape Town’s biggest tourist attractions, it remains a #bucketlist favourite for many locals who have yet to get to the top.
One of the most luxurious (and convenient) ways to check out the summit is riding up the rotating cable car, which lasts five minutes and transports you 1 067 metres above sea level. During the trip, the floor of the cabin revolves 360 degrees, offering exhilarating panoramic views of the city. Once on top, you have the option of refueling at the Table Mountain Café or WiFi Lounge, or you can do some exploring while taking in the fynbos that blankets the granite and limestone mountain.
Are you keen to ride to the top of Cape Town’s beloved icon? Great news! We’re giving one lucky reader six return tickets to the crown.
