The less than four minute journey by cable way gives an amazing view of Cape Town City. The beauty is it rotates 360 degrees so that you get a 360 degrees view of the city. Wonderful experience.

Hi. The only other way up is by hiking one of the three trails up the mountain, with an experienced guide. The Cableway is the only form of motorised transport up. Thanks
