We actually went up hiking and came down by the cable car. Very good decision since you get pretty tired on the way up.

We took the Aerial Cableway to the top and the views at the top were spectacular. It was clear and sunny for us. The floor in the cable car rotates so everyone gets to see the view on the way up or down. There are...More

Always the place to visit in Cape town. Offers wonderful views of the whole city. The cable way is scary but you'll do it over and over again because you want to be on top of Table mountain. The restaurant is self service and it...More
