South Africa Table Mountain

Interactive City of Cape Town map (s), including
the metropolitan area and the Cape Peninsula

As you will see on the Cape Town map (s) below that Cape Town is to be found right up north on the Cape Peninsula, in the south western corner of the Western Province in South Africa.

Bordered by Table Bay in the north and a cordon of mountains in the south, the city centre lies in a kind of bowl that stretches into Table Bay.

This cordon of mountains, includes the well known Table Mountain, Devil's Peak, Lion's Head and the Twelve Apostles.

They form the one end of the range of mountains stretching like a steep and rocky spine down the length of the Peninsula from Cape Town to Cape Point.

The metropolitan area of Cape Town comprises more than 70 peaks with an average height of 300 meters.

The many suburbs of the city, of which many are situated on the Cape Flats, extend well beyond the mountains encircling the city bowl. When navigating in and around Cape Town, there is the one and only world renown beacon that makes it easy to find your way around and that is Table Mountain.
