Well worth it, take the free tour around the top, interesting. Views good if you catch inbetween the cloud on a cloudy day. Pre buying tickets will save queing time. We got a taxi as parking seemed all along the road so could be a fair walk up hill if hot. Taxis available on leaving.

Such a fun adventure to ride a cable car up the mountainside and arrive to see the incredible views and all the people enjoying this natural wonder.

We caught the cable car up which is a different car to the previous one. It felt safer but there is no way to sit down and when the car moves the floor rotates so you cannot hold on which is a little un-nerving when you have balance problems. It doesnt take long however about 5 minutes and when you... More

To get up to the Table Mountain on a wonderful sunny day is an experience not to miss. You can see different species on top. The scenery is wonderful and breathtaking. Sometimes the clouds can heap together at the top blocking the vision. It is a must see experience for the travellers visiting Cape Town & Area.

My experience with Table Mountain was a little mixed; we decided to hike up but got a late start, began to climb Plattekip Gorge (what we understood to be the shortest trail) around noon, and finally turned around due to a lack of time and the broiling heat. That could have been avoided if we had: 1) gone earlier when... More

We walked up table mountain, via the Platteklip Gorge, it takes about an hour and half. The walk is not particularly difficult, although the day we went up it was very hot and the first thirty minutes was hard work as it was so hot. The route starts out about a mile after the cablecar. Make sure you take enough... More

I wasn't excited for this. I had a preconceived notion that it would just be another long line to see things from up high like the space needle in Seattle, the Sears Tower in Chicago, or Burj Khalifa in Dubai. I was wrong. The day was exceptional and there was a lot more space to walk around than i expected.... More

Although there was a huge line for the cable car, due to perfect weather (sunny, warm and no wind!) it was definitely worth the wait. The view was spectacular, lots to see and do, good facilities at the national park. This includes a beautiful rangers cottage where we stayed overnight called the 'Overseers Cottage'. We hiked 2.5 hours from the... More
