All you need to get along with you are a good pair of shoes! As you make your way up to the top, there are many hidden caves along the way. To get to the top, you need to circle the mountain. At some places, the climb is very steep, and you may even require using your hands to climb. But once up, the views of Cape Town, Table Mountain, and the endless ocean are unparalleled. On the last day, shop till you drop. But before that swim with the sharks. There are many sites near Cape Town where you can go shark-cage diving. If you are the kind of a traveler that comes with a half-empty suitcase so that you can take back home a lot of stuff, this day is especially for you. Visit the Pan African Market and the Greenmarket Square for some Victorian tiling, old folk art, and clothing. Visit Heartworks to buys some quality souvenirs.
