Six times older than the Himalayas ‘Table Mountain’ remains one of the oldest mountains on earth. Originally formed beneath deep waters some 800 million years ago it eventually started to be pushed up out of the sea through a geological process known as istotacy and currently stands at a height of 1086m above sea level. There is evidence of prehistoric people having lived here as early as 600,000 BC.

Dominating the skyline of Cape Town this beautiful mountain simply takes your breath away and being a visitor here you have to constantly pinch yourself every time it catches your eye. Clean, safe and friendly it is no small wonder that this fantastic city remains the firm destination of choice for both local and international visitors alike.
