    Survivor guide: Visiting Table Mountain

    Table Mountain stands 1,084 metres above the South African city of Cape Town. Known for its flat top plateau, the mountain is a vast landmark on the South African coast. The climate surrounding the mountain means that clouds often cover the top of Table Mountain, resulting in a ‘table cloth’ of cloud being formed.

    Visitors come to Table Mountain to experience the rich biodiversity, rock climbing, mountain biking, and the hiking activities available, as well as to see the spectacular views across the city of Cape Town and the Atlantic Ocean.

    Reduce your chance of suffering an accident when visiting Table Mountain

    When visiting landmarks such as Table Mountain it is important to prevent any accidents that could occur, including slips, trips or falls.

    To limit these, always pay attention to safety warnings and follow a correct route, or follow a guide when hiking. Always be prepared for a varying climate since unfavourable weather conditions, such as strong winds, could increase your chances of falling. Wearing the correct footwear is also key, since the ground underfoot may be rocky and loose, and the wrong choice of hiking shoes may result in a nasty fall.

    One famous aspect of Table Mountain is the Table Mountain Cableway, the cable car that takes tourists to the plateau on the top of the mountain. In order to avoid any personal injury whilst on the cable car, always follow safety instructions and do not board the cable car if it is moving. Remaining seated whilst travelling on the Table Mountain Cableway will also reduce your chance of having a fall that could lead to personal injury.
