This World Heritage Site is Cape Town's most unique identifying landmark. Its summit soars 1086 metres (3562.9 feet) above sea level. Visitors can marvel at the awe-inspiring 360 degrees view of Cape Town while enjoying a meal or refreshing drink at the mountain top restaurant, or wandering the rocky trails lined with beautiful Fynbos. The mountain is, in fact, covered with a wide variety of wild flowers and is the natural home of the famous Silver tree.
In clear view from Table Mountain lies Signal Hill. (There are great views from the 350 metre (1148.2 feet) summit of Signal Hill as well). Signal Hill, which lies between Sea Point and the City Bowl, derived its name from practical purposes.
In the past, flags were hoisted from Signal Hill to advise residents of approaching ships. A guide will escort you to the top of the mountain and will return you to your hotel via a scenic coastal drive through Camps Bay and Clifton.
