I don't think walking to the top of Table Mountain is an option for most of us so we take the cable car. It is very large and holds a lot of people. Interesting in that it revolves around so everyone gets all views.

When in Cape Town there is one stop you have to make. The Cable Car is one of the most popular attractions in the Mother City. I live in Cape Town and have been up about 10 times just because it relaxing and you can never get tired of the views. The car itself is modern and the floor rotates... More

Views are great and exciting to experience a revolving cable car. Unfortunately, a little expensive I feel, especially for local South Africans. That is the problem with most tourist attractions in SA, they don't give a more affordable rate for locals, quite sad actually!

The best time to go up to the top is about an hour before sunset, then you can get the sunset special - two tickets for the price of one. It doesn't seem to be too crowded at this time of the day and you can take a picnic and a bottle of wine and watch the sun sink into... More

If you don't have a car, the next best thing is the 1st Red bus (Sunday morning very quiet) which only stops in the city 3 times then travels direct to TM. OK, this place will always be busy but only waited 5- 10mins from buying ticket to getting on the cableway. Views are stunning but if, like me, having... More

If it's clear of the tablecloth, this is a must-do. The walk looks pretty tedious and steep and is very exposed and life is too short. Initially put off by what appeared to be long queues actually they move very quickly, and you don't even need to jostle for position in the car as it rotates giving everyone a chance... More

The Cableway from Table Mountain is pretty new and offers a nice service. The queue is normally pretty long to go up and I can recommend to once climb up Table Mountain and to take the Calbeway only for your way back! We made it this way and it was just awesome to have the beautiful nature and scenary on... More
