Buy your tickets ahead of time on line. It will save you 20 min in line. Great views and experience. There are a number of trails on the top to walk to see all sides from the mountain top.

Table Mountain has been on my bucket list since i was kid and it didn't disappoint. The cable car ride was terrific and the view outstanding. Well worth the effort.

If you are in Cape Town on a clear and non-windy day, this should be your first stop. We bought tickets in advance through our hotel’s concierge and went early to avoid the lines. The ride up is quick (4 minutes) and the view in...More

If your not the most robust hiker in South Africa then this well maintained, rotating ride is for you. Fanatic views with some funny commentary from the controllers.

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!!!
