Table Mountain Safaris 1

Table Mountain Safaris

The highest part of the mountain is called Maclear’s Beacon, which sit 1086 metres above sea level and is a stone tower that was built for a trigonometrically survey in 1863. From here, you’re granted panoramic views of the city centre, Lion’s Head, Robben Island, Table Bay and other fantastic Cape Town highlights.

South African safari goers will be thrilled by the Mountain, made predominantly from resistant sandstone with layers of shale below it. Travelling up Table Mountain is made easy by the cable car which also allows for a 360-degree trip up as it rotates.

Alternatively, we also recommend hiking on Table Mountain which exposes you to some of the fauna of the area, including dassies, porcupines, tortoises and mongooses, and if you are lucky you might get to spot the rooikat which is found on the slopes but extremely rare. The Cape Fynbos is also found on Table Mountain and is believed to consist of 2200 species of plants, including the Protea, the national flower of South Africa. There are five dams on Table Mountain and its slopes which supply water to Cape Town, reservoirs which were constructed between 1896 and 1907.

The best time to explore Table Mountain on your South Africa safari with us is between the seasons, which allows you to avoid the Cape Town winter rains and the extreme heat of summer.
