Sadly our excursion was spoiled by the outrageous food prices! Travellers to this country are appalled at the high prices and I asked a few to voice their opinions and all agreed that this not in the interests of promoting tourism to this beautiful country!

Beautiful place. Once you are in cape town this place grips you every where you go. The clouds add beauty to the scene too. Access to the top is subject to clear weather. Revolving Cable Car is good giving a full view of the city but waiting time is some times in hours. Queue starts from the staircase up till... More

We arrived in Cape Town on a gorgeous sunny winter's day only to be told the weather was going to take a turn for the worse the next day and stay that way for the rest of our time here! So despite being exhausted from 24 hours of travel from London we rushed over to the cable car by taxi.... More

But the next morning a glorious blue sky gave me the view ive waited a lifetime for. We travelled to the top in the cable... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We had great weather on the day we visited. If your an independent traveller, l would recommend visiting early morning before the coaches arrive. The cable car is brilliant as everyone gets a view. Stunning views all round the mountain. Actually visited in 2012.

I travelled to table mountain a month ago. While it was cold, the views were really good, the cable car is fun to travel on, and the wildlife on the top of the mountain is also cool.

If you get to Table Mountain on a clear day, the views are absolutely breathtaking. I got lucky and had the most amazing weather. Buy your tickets for the gondola online in advance - they're good for 14 days after the date you choose to go up Table Mountain (in case of bad weather) and you can skip the lines... More
