Availability is usually only opened up a week before as the hike is weather dependent. Family friendly hike. We do an easy 5 km round-trip hike on the top of Table Mountain to it's Highest Point at Maclears Beacon. We return in time to watch the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean as we tower high above the city. It is a gentle flat hike to Maclears Beacon suitable for the whole family as we walk on the table top. We start off meeting at the upper Cable Car Station after taking the Cable Car to the top of Table Mountain. We then start our hike along the top of the table to the highest point on Table Mountain and Cape Town, Maclears Beacon at 1087m above sea level. We take a path which is very rarely accessed, yet offers the most amazing panoramic views of the City, Atlantic Ocean, Devil's Peak and Lions Head, along the Rim of Table Mountain. We tag the highest point at the Maclears Beacon and stop to appreciate our accomplishment with a snack break and some pictures. We then make our way back to the upper Cableway Station in time to watch the sun set from the best location in Cape Town or grab a drink/meal at the restaurant.
