What a surprise. The cable car rotates so everyone gets a great view of Cape Town, Lions Head, the Twelve Apostles and Camps Bay. Buy your tickets online in advance and arrive early or after lunch to avoid crowds.

Was part of our guided tour up the Table Mountain. We were blessed with a gorgeous sunny day, right at the start of spring. Fab views - but you have to fight for the best spots - which are by the glass windows.

First thing. Purchase a ticket for the cable car ahead of time! It will reduce your waiting time as this is a very popular attraction. The effort is well worth it. The table top is massive, with lots of lookout points and pathways. Wear layers....More

This rotating lift car gives everyone a chance for a good view of the mountain and Cape Town as you ascend. Plus, it's way faster than climbing the trail if you are either under time pressure or just not up for the significant effort. The...More

When you get to the top, there is a machine in the cable car house where you can buy a one-way ticket down. The hike up takes about 2 hrs, so take plenty of water.
