Views are amazing, dassies are cute and related to elephants, yep, seriously! BUY YOUR TICKET ONLINE in advance as queues for the cablecar can run well over an hour...the free WiFi for the queue isn't secure so buying online onsite could be a risk. Ostrich...More

We had perfect weather, gorgeous views, good food at the cafe. Online it stated there was a 2 hour wait to get to the cablecar, but actually only took 35mins. Large area to explore up top... and I already mentioned, but LOVED the views!
