Cape Town is perhaps best known for Table Mountain, a prominent feature on the landscape and visible from nearly everywhere in the city. The mountain comprises of Sandstone and is 1086m in height. It's flat summit is approximately 3 km and is an excellent viewpoint for seeing the city. There is a cable car to take visitors to the top of the mountain where there is a restaurant and a souvenir shop. If you do not wish to take the cable car to the summit, there are also 350 paths that can be travelled, however some are quite demanding and would not be suitable for children.
Another destination often visited when in Cape Town is Robben Island. Since the 16th century the island has been a place of exile, at times housing those with leprosy, the mentally ill and political prisoners. Some of the more famous prisoners who served their sentence on the island were South Africa's first democratic President Nelson Mandela and the founding leader of the Pan African Congress, Robert Sobukwe. Robben Island no longer holds prisoners but it is still inhabited. The islands population live in a small village with a grocery store, bank and several more services. The island is visited daily by tourists and ferries sail daily from the Victoria & Alfred waterfront jetty. Guided tours are led by former political prisoners making it a very emotional experience for many.
