My husband and I visited Table Mountain in June 2018 and it was an amazing experience. We had bought our tickets on the hop on-hop off bus which meant we didn't have to queue. However, as we were there in low season, there wasn't much...More

We took the Ariel cableway and it offered great views of the city. Recommend. It only operates if conditions are right, so might be worthwhile to check ahead of time.

We took the Hopon Hopoff bus to the cableway and were soon on the way up. The views of the city are spectacular. There is plenty to do on the top as well. Initially the winds were strong but all calmed down as we hiked...More

Go to the top with the cableway! Fantastic views and I hate heights! But I felt safe and enjoyed the trip. It’s costly, but worth it, 3minute flight and you’re able to enjoy the top of table mountain 👍👍👍

We went as part of a package but on the day we went the mountain was shrouded in cloud. We had a few brief views as we went up but could see nothing from the top. Don’t go when visibility is poor.

The cable car is spacious and the floor rotates which ensures that everyone gets an open air glimpse of the surrounding beauty. It is very thoughtful touch to not let only a few cling on to the 'best seats'. Thank you. once up, take your...More

A walk to MacLear's Beacon is always a good one if you feel like an hour or so's walk and the views are stunning. The self-serve is also good with a variety of food and beverages and the staff are pleasant and efficient.

Amazing sunset-it does get cold at top so make sure to bring a jacket. Get tickets online before you go.

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!!!
