Table Mountain is a well known landmark of Cape Town, South Africa situated right in the heart of city and also featured in Cape Town flag. It is famous for adventure activities like hiking, cable way, rock climbing, caving and mountain biking among the visitors. The Cable way takes us from the cable station, about 300m above the sea level to the top of the mountain. Table Mountain is spared around 3 kilometers & from the top we can see one side city view & other side of the mountain gives deep sea view. It is the most iconic point, from where we can take breathtaking photos and scenic view of the Cape Town. Table mountain is also famous for its beautiful flora and fauna. The beautiful valleys and powerful streams make it a famous idyllic hot spot.

Helicopter ride in Cape Town

I would say if you are planning for Cape Town holidays and if you don’t experience this beautiful & scenic helicopter ride over the city then your tour is incomplete. I have taken helicopter ride for twenty minutes which flew over Cape Town city & I would say the whole experience was breath taking. Leave from the V&A Waterfront and fly over the city bowl, the new Green Point Stadium, the famous four beaches of Clifton, the white sands of Camps Bay and the majestic Twelve Apostles before making an about turn back to Cape Town.
