When we visit Cape Town we usually walk up Table Mountain from Kirstenbosch. So it was quite novel for us to take the cable car recently. I was pleasantly surprised by the very short wait at the base station; we boarded a car in less...More

A must do in Cape Town. You can hike to the top, but if your not a fitness freak the cable cart is the way to go. You walk around the top of the mountain when you get there. It's a pretty easy walk. We...More

No stay in Cape Town is complete without a trip to Table Mountain.The ride to the cable stop is even breathtaking.And the cable car slowly revolves around as it is ascending and descending.

We went up at around 5.30pm to watch the sunset and avoid the crowds. This is a must if coming to capetown. It has the best view of the bay and surrounding areas.

Hiked up and planned on taking the Cable Car down after sunset. Two hour hiking up and 5 minutes to get down, not a bad deal. It was clean and efficient but taking the car at night didn't allow for great views and we were...More

If you don’t fancy a hike all the way up Table Mountain, this is the easier way to go up. I would definitely recommend booking for in advance as the line is very long. On the way down the line is also very long, so...More

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!!!
