We were on a half day city tour of Cape Town when our guide announced "the Table Mt. cable car just opened". Apparently due to Cape Towns common winds this attraction is closed down quite often. The cable car had been closed all morning so we drove to Table Mountain. We beat the crowds,got out tickets,and were on the cable... More

It is a wonderful experience to go with the cable car and enjoy the view on a clear day. You can see forever. It is a must for a traveller.

We only had a week in Cape Town and every day the mountain was closed due to the winds. The one day it was open we queued for 3 hours but wow was it worth it. The views were out of this world, we had a bottle of champagne when we got up there and it was magical. So glad... More

On our first day in Cape Town, we took advantage of the Sunset discount at Table Mountain. It was a brilliant ride up on the cable car and the views from the top were spectacular. It was to be our first encounter with the little dassies! As we descended, the clouds started to roll over, like immense waves breaking over... More

I climbed up without much research and expected it to be a little cold. which it wasn't at all (October 2016) . Wear comfortable shorts and do not bother to carry anything other than water (not available anywhere midway) . top of the mountain there is a cafe and souvenir shop (not over expensive surprisingly). The hike route is well... More

If you're visiting Cape Town, you'll most likely find yourself heading up table mountain on foot or by cable car. And it's worth the views! A couple of things that we didn't know until we made it to the top: the site occasionally closes in poor visibility or bad weather, so plan accordingly. There are tons of trails at the... More

When its a special birthday, and you husband says we're going up a mountain today your heart drops a little. Though how wrong could I be. It was the most breathtaking amazing place I'd ever been to. From the drive through some beautiful countryside to being told I had to do a cable car ride to get to the top... More

Everything you read about the spectacular views are true, simply beautiful. Be prepared to queue to get on the cable car as there are only two. The car revolves inside so dont hang on to the sides otherwise there is the potential for people to fall like nearly happened on our journey! Take a jacket no matter how hot it... More

Stunning views and a very nice hike up the mountain. We had perfect weather conditions in September, not too hot and clear blue skies.
