Table Mountain National Park, Cape Town

The Basics

Explore Table Mountain National Park on a variety of tours ranging from day trips across the Cape Peninsula to private hiking tours up the steep slopes of Table Mountain. If you want to see the views from tabletop but aren’t up to the hike, opt for the relaxing route up on a cable car (book a tour with skip-the-line privileges to avoid long wait times) or soar above the park’s stunning rock formations on a coastal helicopter tour.

Robben Island & Table Mountain Pre Booked Tickets With Hotel Pick Up & Drop Off
Our tour guide, Seraphine, is not cape Town native, but his knowledge of the city and its history was incredible. His clear. ove of the city is contagious. Our tour group was three people in total, so it had the feel if a private tour and by the end of the day we felt like family. Seraphine did an amazing job of pointing out sights and helping us identify landmarks from the top of the mountain. If you like a personal touch, you can't go wrong with this one!

Private Cape Of Good Hope Tour with Table Mountain Ticket Including Park Fees
We love this tour and recommend any one coming to Cape Town to book this same tour. Wonderful experience thanks to our tour guide. We got up close to the penguins and our kids were walking along the beach with these cute little penguins which was the highlight of our trip. We had a fabulous day and enjoy talking to our tour guide. He took us to many beautiful places and no rush. Everything was at our own pace and we can customize our day however we want. Our tour guide made it happen.

How to Get There

Table Mountain is easily reached from central Cape Town by car, taxi, bicycle, or on foot. You can venture into the rest of the national park on one of the coastal roads that run between the park and the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the False Bay on the other. The easiest way to go deeper into the park is to join a tour of Cape Peninsula.

When to Get There

A “tablecloth” of clouds usually rolls across the mountaintop in the afternoon and obscures the city and ocean below, so Table Mountain itself is best visited in early morning or at sunset in order to see the much-anticipated views. If you visit on weekends and holidays be prepared for certain parts of the park to be quite crowded.

Go Beyond Table Mountain

Do not let the fame of Table Mountain overshadow the rest of the natural wonders in the national park. First, get the best views of Table Mountain itself—plus 360-degree views of the city and ocean—from neighboring Lion’s Head peak. Then, make the journey south along the Cape Peninsula to see the historic Cape of Good Hope. Along the way, stop to visit the Boulders Beach penguin colony, enjoy white-sand beaches, and hike trails lined with fynbos and wildflowers.
