There are many ways up to the Table Mountain and getting on
its top is easier than ever.
The most popular way up is through the cable car, a fast and
secure way of transportation that serves visitors since 1929.
There are various areas of the national park where one has
to pay entry fees including the Boulders, Silvermine, Cape Hope, Oudekraal,
Tokai picnic site etc.
These different parts of the Table Mountain are not yet connected by bus; thus if you wish to
see all of them in a day, your best option is to do it by car.
Access to various areas of the national park is as follows:
Boulders Beach – It is
located in Simon’s Town, on the M4. Alternatively you can go to Muizenberg via M3 and M5 and from there continue to
Kirstenbosch Garden is
closer to the city centre, less than 20 minutes with no traffic. Getting there is best done via M3 and M63.
Oudekraal is located on
the M6 between Camp’s Bay and Llandudno.
Cape Point is naturally
the furthest from the city centre as it is the southernmost point of the continent. One can reach it either via M4,
passing through Simon’s Town or through the M3, M64, M6 and M4.
