Things To Do On Table Mountain (Other Than Admire The View)

Flanked by Devil’s Peak and Lion’s Head, Table Mountain is probably South Africa’s most recognisable icon. It broods over one of the world’s most beautiful cities and every day hundreds of people rotate to the top in a cable car; the more energetic walk up. The view from up there – on a clear day – is breathtaking. But it’s more than a pretty mountain to look at.

 

Up the Cableway

For the most spectacular ride of your life, climb aboard the Cableway. It’ll take two minutes to reach the top of Table Mountain and the cable car revolves as it climbs, giving you 360° views over the city and the Peninsula. There are paved paths to walk along when you reach the top.

Maclear’s Beacon

Instead of the stock-standard Table Mountain tourist route of Cableway to restaurant and back down again, go a little further and do something different. Pack a picnic and take an easy 5.5km walk from the cable car to Maclear’s Beacon, the highest point of the mountain; it should take you about an hour to get there and you’ll be far from the crowds. Just remember not the walk up when the mountain’s shrouded in cloud – it’ll be cold, windy and miserable up there.

10 Reasons Why You Should Never Visit Cape Town

1. Nothing to do

Cape Town is probably one of the most vibey cities on the planet! There certainly isn’t a lack of activities here – in fact, your schedule will be jam-packed if you visit.

We have found a list of great activities to keep you busy:

The Springbok Experience

The Springbok Experience is a world-class, modern interactive museum telling South Africa’s story through the eyes of its most powerful sport. It offers a fun and entertaining experience for the whole family and is a ‘must-do’ attraction at the heart of the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town.

The museum features more than 60 audio visual displays where visitors can watch the history of South African rugby unfold, set among cases displaying historic objects such as famous trophies, jerseys, boots and other memorabilia. It makes a perfect venue for exclusive corporate events as well.
