It would be a sin to visit Cape Town without taking the cable car up to the top of Table Mountain. With the best views in Cape Town you can look out over the city bowl to Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was infamously held. Then walking to the other side you can see right across the Twelve Apostles to the upmarket beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton. The mountain top is home to lots of wild life and fauna, you can see different birds of prey and also home to a small guinea pig looking animal called a Rock Dassie.
