If you are in Cape Town and there is no cloud on the mou again then this is a must. Just do yourself a favour and precook your tickets online. It will save you queuing for at least 30mins to buy them at the cable...More

I recently travelled on the cableway on a very clear and beautiful 26 degree day in Cape Town. The line up was quite long, so I would recommend buying the tickets a few days before you plan on travelling. The line took 45 minutes before...More

You can't visit Cape Town and not go to the top of table mountain in the cable car. The queues are long which is a bit tedious, but the views are incredible and worth the wait.

Beautiful views of the entire area of Capetown. Would recommend an early start time and getting tickets before you go as the lines get long later in the day with all the tours.

Our family of six took the cable car down from Table Mountain after walking to the top via Platteklip Gorge. It was the first time we have used the cable car in a few years and it remains a fantastic, albeit very expensive experience.

We were there on a weekday, bright and early. Still had a half hour wait before it was our time to go up. Staff was friendly and knowledgable, and boosted the experience. Safe and fast, once through the queue.
