If you are in Cape town , head up the mountain. Although the cable car is expensive, the experience is worth it. The view from the top is incredible.

We took the aerial cableway up to table mounain the day we arrived in Cape Town. Views were magnificent as the clouds were slowly rolling in from the sea. That also told us we were very lucky we went up immediately when we arrived: for the next 3 days, the mountain top was in the clouds, and visibility was zero.... More

This is a great way to see the city of Capetown. If you go on a clear day you can see the whole city. There is a fee to take the cablecar up but it's worth it.

we took the cable cars because we are lazy, but a beautiful view when you reach the top and well worth the extra money if you are low on time/lazy

We decided to walk, well climb up to the top of Table Mountain, and it was well worth it. it takes 2-3 hours depending how relaxed you are, and we saw birds, goats, protea and beautiful scenery going up. Sometimes it is a bit of a struggle, but not much. At the top the view is just fantastic! We took... More

The trip to top ofthe mountain with cable car is lovely. Visit to table mountain is absoultly weather permitting. When you go to the top you can see cape town from every angle. The views are incredible. Fantastic costal views and beautiful scenery. If you go to capetown you can't miss this place.

The #1 "must go" in Cape Town! Remember: if the weather is now good (no clouds) go right away! Five hours later the summit may be fully covered with clouds and You can´t see a thing! And that can continue a week, and you never see the summit! Finding parking for private car may be difficult, if not inpossible, so... More

Even after being there two years ago, there was no way I was not going back up there again. The view is one that you cant get anywhere in the world as it has Capetown (city view on one side) and on the other the beach and the ocean. You can even see Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was in... More
