1086m Table Mountain is Cape Town’s most famous icon and, as part of the Western Cape Floral Kingdom, was declared a World Heritage Site in 2004. Towering over the city, the mountain is visible from 200km out at sea and is often covered with clouds - we call it the tablecloth.
Table Mountain is home to more than 1 470 species of plant - more than in the entire United Kingdom. 200 of them are found nowhere else. Table Mountain also offers rock climbing routes at various grades - as well as the opportunity, for the brave, to abseil off it... no wonder it’s a Top Ten Western Cape attraction.
