We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your Cableway experience. Our operations are weather dependent and we do announce it on our website, our social media platforms and via our queue busters at the gate. Going up is then entirely up to...More

Excellent no words describe the experience Cable cars are cancelled due to wind so check with reception at hotel before experiencing the once in a life time experience that cable cars are in operation on the day.

Just stunning. Advise to pre-book your tickets to avoid the long queue although, you will still have to wait but well worth it!

If the gruelling Table Mountain hike is not for you (like it wasn't for me), this is a really great (and only) alternative. The floor revolves as it climbs/descends, so no one can hog the best viewpoint. Slightly terrifying but it a good way ;)...More
