“Amazing view: on a clear day, you can see forever”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2015 NEW

My wife has a bit of acrophobia, and the fear of the cable car was far greater than the actual ride. By the time we were half-way up the mountain, she was "ooing" and "awing" the scenery as much as the rest of us. Once we got to the stop, all we could do was stare: it was beautiful, so clear, with perfect weather. It seemed that we could see forever, as well as the entire cape district of South Africa.We really enjoyed the quiet of the magnificence of various outlook points -- it seemed almost church-like. The worst part of the experience was having to leave it.

Strongly recommend a good binoculars; but a modern "point and shot" digital camera produced pictures of amazing quality. Take the time to explore the trails at the top, especially if this is a once-in-a-lifetime visit.

Stunning! Stunning! Stunning! but it gets seriously cold, so even if it's a very hot day, do take a jersey or jacket with you and remember the sun block, chap stick and moisturizer!

“Table Mountain National Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2015 NEW

Best to check the weather forecast before leaving to get the cablecar. Its often cancelled at short notice due to the weather. If it gets too windy they sound an air raid siren to evacuate the mountain and you are advised to return to the cable car station immediately. Its very windy on top of Table Mountain and you should take clothing in case it rains and decent walking footwear for the often uneven paths that lead away to the walking routes.If you decide you are superfit there are over 300 walking routes off the mountain that do not need you to take the cablecar.

It's an amazing experience and great spots for some nice pics of aerial views of Cape Town and selfies. Good value for money.
