Sightseeing
Kirstenbosch, the world famous botanical garden is a 5 - 10-minute drive away and is a wonderful location for seeing indigenous Cape vegetation at the foot of the eastern slopes of Table Mountain. It's a perfect spot to wander around and take in iconic scenery and enjoy the unique indigenous flora and fauna. Local birdlife is particularly well represented. The trails are perfect for a relaxed stroll; a more adventurous trail run; or as the start of hike up the back of Table Mountain. Look out for: o ‘Boomslang’ treetop canopy walk to get great views and get a perspective from the treetops o Colonel Bird’s Bath Also known as (‘Lady Anne Barnard’s Bath’) o Sculptures o Dinosaur exhibition in the Gardens

Awe inspiring drive linking Hout Bay and Noordhoek with a winding road cut into the mountain. The views are breath-taking and the engineering achieved to build the road is a marvel. Do a round trip from Constantia, to Noordhoek with a stop at the farm village and then take time to stop for photographs on the Drive before returning via Hout Bay and Constantia Nek.

More than just the iconic symbol embracing Cape Town, Table Mountain is an endless source of entertainment for activity seekers. Whether you walk up, take the cable car or ride a mountain bike on the lower slopes it’s a must see. Be sure to take a camera up on a clear day to capture the incredible views. The quickest (and busiest) walking route up to the top is via Platteklip Gorge starting from Tafelberg Road. Be aware though that there are no easy walks up – even Platteklip Gorge is steep, strenuous and will take more than an hour up.

The walk-up Lion’s Head offers the best 360-degree view of Cape Town. It’s not as high as Table Mountain and easily accessible from the parking along the Signal Hill road The Lions Head walk ascends the mountain in a clockwise direction doing a full circle before the top. The top section up to the peak includes some rock scrambling with the aid of bolted chains and ladders. Thousands of locals and tourists go to the top all the time so it’s easy enough, but take care if you have acute fear of heights or are concerned about fitness.

城市游览建议

出行
Car Rental is the best way to explore Cape Town
The sights in the Cape Peninsula are extensive from the City Centre and The Waterfront to the spectacular Atlantic Seaboard, Table Mountain and extending all the way through rural Constantia to the False Bay coast and to Cape of Good Hope (Cape Point). If you don't want to drive yourself, then the Open Top Bus Tour is an excellent way to see many sights in a short time. Alternatively we use Uber e-hailing service when we don't want to drive.
