Where Is Table Mountain?
Table Mountain is a flat-topped mountain forming a prominent landmark overlooking the city of Cape Town in South Africa, and is featured in the flag of Cape Town and other local government insignia. It is a significant tourist attraction, with many visitors using the cableway or hiking to the top. The mountain forms part of the Table Mountain National Park.
Table Mountain forms part of the Cape Floral Region, a Unesco World Heritage Site that is one of the richest areas for plants in the world. Table Mountain National Park has more plant species within its 25,000 hectares than the whole British Isles or New Zealand.
The highest point of Table Mountain is Maclear's Beacon at 1,086m above sea level on the eastern side of the front table. It's a comfortable 45 to 60 minute walk (one way) from the cable car. Dress warmly for the top and be prepared for different weather conditions to what the rest of Cape Town is experiencing.
