Table Mountain has been the backdrop to millions of pictures throughout the years. You can count on her beauty to elevate your picture memories. Tourists who have only seen the mountain in pictures strain to catch their first glimpse as they fly in to Cape Town.

Tall, proud and picturesque, the mountain watches over the city like a guardian. Some days she is covered in a white frothy tablecloth and on other days she pierces an empty blue sky – spectacular all the same.

The mountain has seen countless marriage proposals, and is possibly THE place to get down on one knee and ask the love of your life to spend forever together.

We’ve gathered some captured moments shared on social media. Smile Table Mountain, you’re on camera!
