What do you think of when you hear "Cape Town?" Table Mountain...
Iconic sites and landscapes, from every perspective.
Way, way back, Sir Francis Drake described this part of the world as "the fairest Cape in all the circumference of the world" - a description that still holds true today. Cape Town is appreciated and admired not only for its natural beauty, but also for its rich heritage and cultural diversity. And the fact that it's considered one of the top culinary destinations in the world only enhances its appeal.
With that in mind, we've compiled a list of things to do that showcase our magnificent city, from must-visit destinations to exhilarating outdoor adventures.
THINGS TO DO ON TABLE MOUNTAIN
The Mother's City's iconic mountain draws you in like a magnet. The cable-car ride up the mountain is a must-do. If you'd prefer to climb it and explore, there are a dozen well-known hiking trails - but tackle them only if you are an experienced hiker, or have a knowledgeable guide, and always in a group. The weather can change suddenly on the mountain, so pack accordingly. Beyond this, we've listed several other ways to enjoy this natural landmark and Wonder of the World.
