We took the cable car to the top I the mountain and although it was busy it still only took 5 minutes - definitely worth buying tickets before you get there. The views are stunning and the animals and plant life are equally beautiful. There are so many great photo opportunities and the walk through the rocks on the top... More

Wonderful ride in the cable car to the top, lovely views of Cape Town and Robben Island. Great walks and such a clean area to visit. Good Restaurant.

Cable car ride to the top of Table mountain was wonderful. Hiking all the way to the top can be quite tedious.

We went to Table Mountain early in the morning. If you arrive at the cable car too late you have to wait for ages.

This was a group activity for us - we were about 20 in total and varying in ages between 25-50. We had been told by the trek guide that the trek up for a moderate level of difficulty and therefore felt we could do it. IT IS NOT moderate. It is steep, and hard to get to the top. If... More

We went early in the morning before the winds and fog (and crowds) show up. The views are breathtaking and the cable car itself is state of the art.
