I'm planning to take the cable car up and down because we only have a short amount of time in Cape Town. Can anyone suggest a walk from the cable car top station of around 1.5-2 hours?

Whether you plan to hike up or down Table Mountain, please ensure that you have someone with you who knows the way. Every year, people get stuck or lost on the mountain. It is not just a simple little stroll. The weather can change within a few minutes and when the mist comes over, it is very easy to lose your bearings.
