1. Ascend to the top of the world at Table Mountain
There’s a reason why Table Mountain is considered a must-visit for any traveler spending time in Cape Town. Quite simply, there’s nowhere like it on Earth. The mountain’s distinctive flat top towers over Cape Town, and is best reached by the Table Mountain cableway. Soar to the summit while drinking in breathtaking 360-degree views of the Cape Peninsula, from glittering blue ocean to rugged and raw gorges and crags. Depending on the weather, you could be surrounded by crisp clear sky or a cloth of clouds dripping off the sides of the mountain—both equally beautiful. Once you’re at the top, choose one of three paths and soak up the dazzling array of blooming flowers and sweeping vistas.
