Discover Table Mountain South Africa

Table mountain is part of the oldest mountain range in the world, over 360 million years old. Easy to access, it is located only 20 minutes by car from the Cape International airport. It is possible to climb to the summit, over 1,000 metres high, thanks to a cable car built in 1929. It has already transported millions of visitors up and down the mountain. Since its construction, bigger cabins have been installed to reduce waiting time. The brave can also hike to the top, following the ?Platteklip Gorge', which takes about an hour to reach the summit. Along the way, there is plenty of superb fauna and flora, with over 1,400 species of flower.
