Well Table Mountain is definately a must see in Cape Town.As you descend into CapeTown the views of the mountain can be seen.
The weather can be difficult to perceive as it changes very quickly and the mountain tends to be surrounded by a lot of low cloud. Fortunately the day that I was ascending the mountain was perfectly clear.Costs:-

Once you get to the top of Table Mountain the highest point being 1085m you have at least 12 accessible view points offering you magnificent views of Cape Town, only 2 of the viewing points were not accessible by Disabled Customers.Once we got to the top of the mountain the view was breath taking and despite it being breezy on the top the mountain is pretty flat and there is a wall surrounding the path ways as well as safety banisters in some areas.
It would be a good idea to wear suitable footwear as walking along the mountain the pathways are quite rocky and you could easily lose your step should you be in heels!!There is a restaurant on top of the mountain that serves breakfast over looking the 12 Apostles. It is a self service restaurant but caters for small - large appetites.
The restaurant opening hours are:-1 July - 15 Sept 05: 08h30 - 17h30
The menu includes:-
Breakfast is served 09h00 - 11h30 daily
Health Breakfast @ R18.50
Includes : yoghurt; muesli and fruit salad.
Lunch and Light Snacks
Served daily 11h30 until half an hour before the last car down.
Hot meal of the day: served until 14h30.
Fast foods: hamburgers, hotdogs and hot chips.
Fresh sandwiches and fruit available throughout the day
A large range of coffees were available as well as fresh pastries and cakes.South Africa does offer great value for money and a visit to Table Mountain is a must, I was fortunate enough to pre-book the tour with SpringbokAtlas Tours and a guide explained the sights from each viewpoint on top of the mountain.
Excellent facilities for diabled visitors which include priority car parking spaces and all but 2 of the view points are accessible.
