Getting here was a bit complicated. We tried to save money and take the Citi bus but it dropped us far away. We landed up takin uber for the last 1km or so.

We had not booked tickets so we stood in line (as per the ushers instruction) till we notices self-serve ATM like kiosk which we could use a cc to buy tickets. That saved us a lot of time.

We had no wait and were up in jiffy.

The cable car ride was nice and views were great.

Spectacular views! Congratulations on becoming one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature. I was pretty worried that the cable car might stop running and would have to attempt to walk, luckily it held up until later in the day. Our thoughts are with all the employees though! Great time was had

So it has been years since I have taken the cable car up Table Mountain. I must say, I loved every minute of it. Enjoying the beautiful views - been transported to another dimension, whilst still being in the Mother City

These guys need one full month to perform maintenance works :( Probably the same „club” as NM Gateway to Robben Island, where „bad weather” and „your safety” is a perfect excuse to cancel cruises which are not 100% full and leave you without nothing

The cableway was very pleasant- the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the gondola itself rotates around so everyone can access the unbelievable views while going up.

Members of our party who are scared of heights were nervous about this part of our trip, but these things are full of people and it doesn't take long to get to the top, it's not scary at all! The view from Table Mountain is well worth it. We loved this.

The Table Mountain = The city of Cape Town.
It's the pride of the city.
In winter season reach by 08:30AM. Don't forget to carry your beanie and scarf. It's pleasantly windy in the top. It's so beautiful to watch the city and the mountain top from the cableway !!
It's very much safe !!
Authority closes the service during windy days for the safety of the passengers/ visitors !!

This in itself is an engineering marvel. That being said, I was down to the wire on my last day in Cape Town. It was cloudy and I went up anyway. I was not able to see anything at all. It was cool being able to touch clouds though.

Great time to visit in the winter as there were no queues. If you telephone in advance, they tell you if the visibility is good enough so that you do not waste your time. Spectacular views of the whole of the bay. Cafe was closed for refurbishment but shop was open. An amazing experience not to be missed
