You’ll need some luck to go up and have a good view. Keep looking the weather forecast and go as soon as the weather gets clear. The trip takes only a few minutes and the view is really nice. We got some clouds but nothing...More

After hiking Lion's head, I foolishly thought I could do table mountain. Ended up taking the aerial cableway instead. The floor spins so everyone gets the full experience

We almost skipped this b/c the mountain was covered in clouds for much of our visit. On the last day, we had a small window of clear skies and went up top. It exceeded our expectations - but it was freezing so dress accordingly.

The Cable Car is nice and relaxing compared to the strenuous hike up Table Mountain. You can enjoy a 360 degree view of Cape Town and the surrounding area. The cost is worth the amount of time saved and the cars run very frequently.

My dream came to - seing the sun set from the Table Mountain. Wauw!. We even saw a cloud "rain fall" in the sense that the clouds folded over the hills below. The many paths and trails give a wonderful opportunity to explore this unique...More

Seeing Table Mountain was on my list, and it far exceeded my expectations. Unbelievable views and be sure to keep an eye out for the Dassies (Rock Hyrax).

Hi There.The cable car does not swing but it does rotate very slowly allowing eveyone onboard to get the great views. The cable car does not operate in high winds. This is a MUST DO!!!
