The Table Mountain National Park consists of several pockets of park stretching along the mountain chain from Signal Hill in the north to Cape Point in the south. This natural world heritage site, one of the 7 New Natural Wonders of the World, is a haven of magnificent mountains plunging into deep crystal blue seas fringed by the bleached white sands of the Cape Peninsula. The park is home to the world’s smallest, yet most diverse floral kingdom - the Cape Floral Kingdom. Table Mountain National Park is a must-do for anyone visiting Cape Town. From open access hikes and beautiful forest walks to pristine picnic and day-visit spots to secluded picturesque overnight accommodation facilities in the park, there is plenty to do, see and experience. Conservation fees are payable at only three access-controlled sections of the park, Cape of Good Hope, Boulders Penguin Colony and Silvermine.
