Great way to start a visit to Cape Town with some awesome views of the harbour. Can easily spend an hour or two up there. However the lineup to buy tickets can get bad in the summer, especially around sunset.

my recommendation would be to plan ahead and do this on your first day. Your ticket is valid for 7 days so if you cant get to the top because of weather (happens often) you can try again for free any of the next 6...More

Hi There.The cable car does not swing but it does rotate very slowly allowing eveyone onboard to get the great views. The cable car does not operate in high winds. This is a MUST DO!!!
