Big difference from the old days - car actually revolves allowing everyone a view, with two open windows, to give that thrill

This was one of our highlights of our trip to Cape Town in April. Chose a clear day and arrive early to take advantage of better parking and queues. We had lunch on the mountain and found the restaurant very busy during lunch time. It is a self help but we had no complains on the food. It is just... More

Love that they had the tram rotate so that everyone had a chance to see. Look for the Dassies. Bring a picnic and stay a while once you are up there.

The Table Mountain Cableway offers spectacular and emotional views of Cape Town. It is a very crowed attraction so it is better to book the tickets in advance in order to save time. It worths to take the cableway.

This is my third trip to Africa and Cape Town and yet once again, I had to return here and zoom up the top of Table Mountain in that cable car/gondola and have a coffee in the cafe and feel the clouds around me. It's well worth the trip and the fairly long line to buy your tickets (for visitors... More

We booked our tickets online before our trip and it was a very easy process; the web site is well constructed and functioning. The day we had chosen turned out to be very cloudy, windy, and cool in the afternoon so we had some reservations about going up. Would we see anything? And, since the last Big Bus tour departed...

It is sort of a must when you are in Cape Town to go on top of the Table Mountain. It is as expected an attraction that attracts plenty of tourists en access to the parc in combination with the cableway was quite expensive. It was very cold on top of the mountain and an icecold wind, but the views... More

We are touring South Africa from Germany and had to go see Table Mountain. Going up the Cableway was simply breathtaking and more than what we ever expected! Especially for the price, it was a fantastic adventure. The plantlife is just amazing and even the restaurant food is top quality.

We arrived in Cape Town on the last day of our holiday to glorious weather so knew that Table Mountain was a 'must do' activity. How disappointed we were to get to the top of the hill to find that the Cableway was closed for two weeks for maintenance. I know that this was unfortunate timing for us, but how... More

Weather is a big factor - the first day that you have clear skies, cancel all your plans and go up the mountain as you are never guaranteed another opportunity
