We visited Table Mountain in Cape Town on 20th May 2017 and used the Aerial Cableway to reach the top. We had booked our tickets earlier on and had a special queue, whereas those who had not made advanced booking had to wait longer.

I liked the idea of ​​a passenger compartment rotating against the outer shell. This allows everyone access to an open part/window . I'm my cause it was almost without line - in low season there is non necessary to make internet reservation. I would recommend the late afternoon trip for having opportunity to catch a beautiful sanest- it's amazing how... More

If you don;t have the time or energy to walk up to the top, you can simply take the cable car. Note that it rotates while moving up, so don't worry if you have to stand by the window facing the mountain. Also note that the cable car does not operate if the wind is too strong.

We rode the aerial cableway to the top of cable mountain for an amazing view of Cape Town. The cableway car rotated allowing everyone in the car to see the same views. I thought that was a nice touch. Pre purchase your tickets to skip the long lines.

We were fortunate to have a beautiful, clear, not windy day for the cable car ride to the top of Table Mountain. The ride itself is fantastic. The floor of the cable car rotates slowly, so everyone ends up with a 360 view. Ride is not scary (again, I did mention non windy day). Gorgeous from the top of the... More

A visit off season (May) so no queues. Cheerful and helpful staff and a stunning view on a clear day from the rotating cabin. What's not to like?

This cable-way is always an exciting venture, the unexpected circular movement of the car, guarantees 360 view whilst standing in one spot.

While you are in the Cable car it slowly rotates which is great cos then everyone gets to enjoy the view because the Cable car did get quite full.

The best way to get to the table mountain top is by the aerial cableway. It has the capacity to take about 65 people at one go. Its rotating yet very stable and gives a great view of the cape town city. It is highly recommended to take the cable car tickets online before your date of travel so as... More
