Hike or Climb Table Mountain
Transfer from your hotel to the lower car station at Table Mountain to start the favorite ascent route, offering both brilliant views and an adventurous climb. Steep rocky trails wind up the front of the mountain to a series of short vertical faces protected by chains and staples, followed by a series of ledges that swing from views over Cape Town to vistas of Camps Bay and the 12 Apostles. You have the option of taking other routes and continuing to the highest point at Maclear's Beacon before returning to traverse the western table to descend via cable car. It is also worth noting that the cable car can close at any time due to inclement weather. In this event, you are required to walk off the mountain—an additional 2 hours of hiking.
