TABLE MOUNTAIN

The Table Mountain National Park, which protects the entire Cape peninsula, combines spectacular mountain and ocean scenery with unique fauna and flora – more than 2000 plant species make up the Cape Floral Kingdom.

There are designated areas for dog walking, mountain biking, rock climbing, hang-gliding and paragliding, picnicking and fishing. Scuba diving and surfing are other activities you can try in the park – in addition to a ride in the famous cable car to the top of Table Mountain, where the views are breathtaking. There are staffed information centres at the cableway station and at Cape Point.
