Great facilities, spectacular view.
The cafeteria at the top is not great and would have liked to have a really nice meal up there like at Two Oceans at the Point. We took the Hop on Hop off bus which is best if you don`t want to hike from your parking spot. Avoid the rush at around 11:00 - when we came down there was no queues.

The staff made sure that I was we'll catered for in the aerial gondola. My wife had to keep her eyes closed throughout the 4 minute journey but even she admitted that the views from the top were well worth the journey up.

What better way to see the city and mountain from one view point. With the new cable car that rotates and gives you the perfect vantage point for pictures. They even have sundowner specials from time to time which are well worth it.

The tram rotates as you ascend and descend so you can see everything. While it is was warm at the bottom of the tram it was very cold at the top, so be sure to take a jacket. The views of the harbor are wonderful.

Just a little queue in the morning, we waited approximately 20-30 minutes before boarding the cable car. The ride take maybe 5 minutes if not less. Pretty crowded and everyone is trying to get a place next to the window. 105 rands one way. If you change your mind and wanna take it to the way down too, you might buy the tickets in the shop on top. Same waiting time on the way back.
