Arguably one of the most well-known mountains in Africa, Table Mountain provides a magnificent backdrop to cosmopolitan Cape Town and now boasts the accolade of New 7 Wonders of Nature.
Famous for the tablecloth of clouds that pours endlessly down its slopes when the south-easter blows, this is a mountain of many moods and offers walkers and hikers a range of routes that vary from light strolls to rigorous hikes.
The steep slopes that characterise much of the TMNP make it ideal for mountain biking enthusiasts.
There is now an extensive trail network that stretches from the Western Seaboard, via Signal Hill and Table Mountain right to Newlands forest and Constania Nek.
Trails vary from exposed single track and rock gardens to gentle jeep tracks that take you through the cool shade of indigenous forest Afromontane forests.
To use these trails an annual My Activity Permit Level 3 for mountain biking is required – follow this link to see where you can purchase this. Alternatively, day passes are available for Tokai at the Braai Site Kiosk.
