The organization is excellent, the lines and waiting are processed very efficiently. Having said that, it is important to buy your tickets in advance online. Once at the top, prepare to be amazed.

This is a must do in cape town, the wait for the cable car isnt that long and once your at top the view is absolutely incredible. Walk away from the crowd and it is so peaceful once you find a spot to relax.

The cablecar rotates to afford everyone a great view. It only takes a few minutes to get to the top, so take your videos and photos when you have that shot. Buy your tickets online to avoid long lines.

If possible, go in the evening before dusk. You ascend the mountain in daylight but can grab a bottle of wine, enjoy the amazing sunset and marvel at the beautiful Cape Town nightscape as you descend. Book your tickets through your hotel to avoid queuing.
