Table Mountain is the symbol of Cape Town. The top of mountain is a plateau with a beautiful view over Cape Town. The cloud cover that covers the Table Mountain is also called, very appropriately, the tablecloth. You can reach the top in various ways. For the hikers among us, you can climb the mountain in different degrees. Otherwise you can go up by cable car. It brings you to the top in 5 minutes. During the ride or climb you can enjoy the beautiful view towards the top of the mountain. There is a good chance that you will see hyraxes, also called rock dassies, and birds at the top!
Visiting Table Mountain is highly recommended if you're in Cape Town area, but there are many more activities to keep you going for a week. You can visit the highlights like Cape of Good Hope and Robben Island.
