For the vast majority of visitors the main attraction of Table Mountain National Park is the 1086m-high mountain itself, the top of which can easily be accessed by the cableway; the views from the revolving car and the summit are phenomenal. At the top there are souvenir shops, a good cafe and some easy walks to follow. Departures are every 10 minutes in high season (December to February) and every 20 minutes in low season (May to September), but the cableway doesn’t operate when it’s dangerously windy, and there’s obviously little point going up if you are simply going to be wrapped in the cloud known as the ‘tablecloth’. Call in advance to see if it’s operating. The best visibility and conditions are likely to be first thing in the morning or in the evening.
