Cape Town’s most imposing landmark is without question the flat-topped Table Mountain and its National Park. Wherever you are in the city, whether in your holiday apartment or in the centre, you can see this imposing mountain that beckons you to come and visit. It is primarily a walking Park with exciting trails for all levels of walkers from the super-fit to the casual stroller.

When you reach the mountain you can choose from the many hiking routes available, all of which offer spectacular views of the City of Cape Town, rugged mountains and deep blue seas. Everybody who shares your holiday apartment will enjoy this vigorous and interesting day out in the wilds of the Table Mountain Chain.

Note that most of the popular hikes up Table Mountain such as Platteklip Gorge (north face), Nursery Ravine and Skeleton Gorge (the latter two being accessible from Kirstenbosch) are fairly strenuous. However Silvermine, the Cape of Good Hope Trail and the Constantiaberg Trail are easier to manage. Platteklip Gorge, a prominent gorge up the centre of the main table, is a popular and straightforward direct ascent to the summit. It usually takes around 2.5 hours to cover the course but you can do it in 1–3 hours, depending on your state of fitness.

The best way to reach Table Mountain is by cable car. From the Talia holiday apartment take the Camps Bay bus to Kloof Nek. You then have a 1.5 km walk uphill from Kloof Nek to the Lower Cable Station. The cable car takes about 5-10 minutes to cover the 1085 meter height to the mountain summit, traveling at up to 10 meters per second. Along the way, the floor rotates, giving everyone a 360 degree view. The view from the mountain overlooking the whole of Cape Town is breathtaking.
