Best to book online and in advance to avoid the long queues to the ticketing office. Downside is that it is hard to predict the weather when booking in advance. The afternoon segment is probably better as the day will cool down and there is a chance to catch the clouds floating in to cover the mountain.

We visited on a beautiful morning having bought our tickets online. My partner had never visited and it was her birthday. I have been up to the summit a number of times. The views were spectacular as it was crystal clear at the top but the whole of Table Bay and Camps Bay were covered in cloud. It is a... More

The tram makes the hike up all the better. The hike is fantastic and a must do. Takes 1-3 hours depending on your physical ability. The views along the way are rewarding. When you get to the top, walk around and you are then rewarded with a tram ride to the bottom.

I know people say run to the tabletop the moment the sky clears and for good reason. The view is gorgeous. But while we were at the top there was a sudden shift in weather and the clouds just came pouring in and that took my breathe away! It was just drop dead gorgeous. I particularly enjoyed the cable ride... More

The line was quite long, purchase your tickets ahead of time & your time in line is cut a decent amount. The cable car is the most high tech ive ever been in. This is a MUST DO in CapeTown!!

We walked up the gorge with our 9 year old twins and then caught the cable car back down. What was an approx 75 minute walk on our own turned into an over 3 hour walk with the kids. You need to take plenty of water !! We then enjoyed the views from up top and caught the cable car... More

This was actually part of our Tour Itinerary and on a Sunday morning. 40 people plus a few more to make up the quota of 65 ascended on the second cable car for the day. We had been hoping for a windless, cloudless, sunny day unlike the day before when some rides were cancelled. We were so lucky! The morning... More

You need the Red Route (Hop On Hop Off) and best to buy your tickets on the bus as queues up there can be large.....you don't want to queue for the ticket office then join a queue for the cableway I can assure you. An attraction that isn't cheap (255 Rand) but it's a must do even if your'e like... More
