Table Mountain
DID YOU KNOW?

Table Mountain has been named one of the seven natural wonders of the world for its iconic biodiversity, geological, and water characteristics.

Cape Town currently has seven dams in the area supplying water to the metro, but most of Cape Town's water comes from the Boland Water Source Area.

The availability of clean drinking water from Table Mountain is the reason Cape Town was established as a port city and trade hub centuries ago. The river in Platteklip Gorge and springs in Oranjezicht were the first water sources.

  • Area: 465km2
  • 35% protected, including Table Mountain National Park
