Very efficient cable, view not to be missed

The queues and staff there are very quick and efficient! The cart itself is expertly designed to give you 360 views as you ascend and descend to cableway.

I can see why this is an attraction and one of the natural wonders of the world! The view from the cable car is just breathtaking. The cable car spins around so you don't need to worry that you will miss something. The view from the top is amazing and there are trails that you can take a walk and... More

Our second attempt to get up here as the wind dictates so much here. 4pm and no queues to get up but there was a 40 minute wait to come back down. As expected , the views were stunning and everything was very well regulated and safe. A must while in Capetown

Visiting Cape Town for the first time? Love nature? Then the Table Mountain Cable Car is a must. From the 360 aerial view in the cable car as you move towards the top to a spectacular view on top of the mountain. Several outlook points available. If the sight of the horizon is making you a bit nibbly, there is... More

This was more than you get with very many cable car tours we have done elsewhere. Often you go up, take a few photos then come down! Here the views were breathtaking (more so than anywhere else we have been) but you were able to explore the top end of the nature reserve (or more if you had time) with... More

One of the highlights in Cape Town is to ascend Table mountain on a cable car. No matter where you stand in the cable car, you get 360 degrees view of Cape Town and the mountain. It takes about 3 minutes to reach the top of the mountain.

The cableway was easy way to get on top of the Table Mountain. The cable was moving around while getting up - everyone could see to every direction. Good idea! Go as early as possible or buy the tickets online.

Waited two days for the cable car to open due to the heavy winds since arriving here. Well worth the wait, amazing views. Cable car is excellent as the floor rotates so you get the whole view as you go up and down.
