Book online to shorten your wait for the cable car. View is incredible. Food and water on the top are quite expensive.

What a view! It's worth standing in line for the cableway to take you all the way to the top of Table Mountain. Hopefully it's a sunny day, then the views are stunning!

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!!!
