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.

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.

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.

Amazing views for the top of the Mesa overlooking cape town. Unique biosphere, incredible place. Worth spending at least half a day on it. Was d there wasn't time to go abseiling/rappelling off of 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.

This flat-topped mountain is the symbol of Cape Town, and no visit is complete without a trip to the top. Either hike or ride the cable car up the mountain, and then stay to enjoy views over the city and the endless ocean.

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.

Hyraxes! And so much more. Table Mountain is essentially the geological symbol of Cape Town, and a trip to the top is a must do on any trip to this beautiful city. Cable cars make regular trips up and down the steep slopes, but hiking trails are also an option for the more rugged amongst us (or those simply with more time to spend!). You can see forever up there, and like I said, there's lots of rock hyraxes running around (their a rodent-like relative of the elephant). Also, very cool botany.

Awesome views, great hikes up and down the mountain. I'd specially recommend going up the back of the mountain, through Kirstenbosch Gardens. This way offers some very interesting viewpoints and it's well worth it. The downside is the cafe on the top, expensive and always packed with people forming big lines.
