Day 5: Cape Town in 2 days: Table Mountain, Waterfront and Robben Island
Table Mountain, one of the places you can't miss on the Cape Town route in 2 days
Considered to be the most famous mountain in Cape Town, visible from virtually anywhere in the city and which gives its name to the Table Mountain National Park to which it belongs, this is a must-see, whenever time permits, in the city.
With a very appropriate name, since its shape resembles a table, with an altitude of 1000 meters and a plain that can be traveled walking through several paths, it has a really impressive relief, which has made it one of the city symbols.
Formed more than 500 million years ago, Table Mountain is always incredible, although the days when the clouds are low and seem to create a mantle under the plain are especially striking and truly magnificent.
To climb up to the area known as the plain, where you can walk, you can choose two ways:
- Walking on an ascent that will take you several hours (4-5 in total) and that is quite demanding due to the slope.
- In funicular, with which for R330 per person you can go up and down in a funicular with 360º views in which the cabin is rotating during the ascent and you can enjoy really spectacular views.
