Table Mountain – A Cape Town Tourism photo essay
The beach itself is great for late afternoon or early morning strolls and there are also restaurants facing the sea where you can enjoy a drink or meal while watching the sunset.
A different perspective of Table Mountain taken from Rondebosch Common with the University of Cape Town on the slopes of the mountain and Maclear’s Beacon (the highest point) enshrouded in cloud.
This is a view from the upper cableway station looking down on Lion’s Head. A good tip is to buy tickets online at tablemountain.net/ to avoid some of the queues.
The cable cars rotate and offer everyone the opportunity to enjoy stunning views during the ascent and descent.
Signal Hill is best visited early in the evening and there is usually security at the parking area. It is not advisable, though, to stop in isolated areas along this road at night.
Do you have images of Cape Town you’d like to share with us? We’d love you to join the Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group!
