No trip to Cape Town is complete without a visit to this truly iconic monument.

It’s one of the true seven wonders of nature and it’s impossible to say you have been to Cape Town until you have stood on top of it. Around 600 million years old, it’s possible to hike up it using one of the different routes to suit fitness levels or marvel at the city below from a cable car.

Table Mountain really is memorable. This floral kingdom, with its native monkeys, stunning views and clean, crisp air is a must-do experience in South Africa, whenever you go.

On a day when it’s shrouded in cloud it is equally impressive, looming over the city like a protector. It’s a genuine wonder of the world and when you see it you will know why.
