Table Mountain

Is your mom a lover of adventure, the outdoors and hiking? Set out early on Sunday morning and make your way up one of Table Mountain’s designated hiking trails. Enjoy world-class views and a well-deserved lunch at the restaurant before taking the cable car down. If hiking is not your mom’s ideal way to relax, then grab a return journey on the cable car (R100 return for over 60’s, R380 return before 13:00) and spend ample time strolling along the trails on top, or relax with a packed picnic overlooking the Atlantic Seaboard or Cape Town’s city bowl.


Whichever way you choose to celebrate your mom, be sure to keep your thanks and appreciation of her coming LONG after Mother’s Day has passed and try to send some love in the direction of those living without their moms or the moms who have lost children. And best make your bookings early as special days tend to get full very swiftly
