Table Mountain stands majestic above the city of Cape Town, providing an inspiring introduction to Southern Africa. As you transfer from the airport, you look left to the vertical slope, and right to the waterfront and Table Bay. After the international flight and airport transfer, the afternoon and evening are at your leisure, and you may wish to rest and relax at the V & A Waterfront. But if you’re feeling energetic, the local guide will lead you on a one-hour hike up Lion’s Head for the stunning sunset.
The lion-shaped summit provides the most iconic Cape Town view, with bands of orange and yellow lining the ocean horizon, a tablecloth of clouds sweeping over Table Mountain, and the city lights slowly turning on during your descent. While tourists journey up Table Mountain, Lion’s Head is where the locals go to enjoy the city’s views. Return towards the Waterfront and there are a number of excellent restaurants you can stop at for dinner, or you can enjoy the waterside options that are within walking distance of your hotel.
