Rhodes owned vast areas of the lower slopes of Table Mountain, most of which he gave to the nation on his death. The view from Rhodes Memorial is quite stunning. There is a well-known tea room behind the memorial, and it is a popular viewpoint and picnicking spot which is frequented by students from the University of Cape Town (UCT). It is also a starting point for walking and hiking on Devil’s Peak.
