The five-minute ascent to the top of Table Mountain offers a 360° view of Cape Town, the ocean and the neighboring peaks. The upper cable car station is situated at 1067 metres and the revolving cable car makes sure that your trip up and down gives you a good look in all directions.

Once at the top visitors enjoy spectacular views and the peaceful feeling of being over one thousand metres above the city below. The area at the top of the mountain is surprisingly large so leave enough time to stroll along the paths, enjoy the viewing platforms and soak up the vistas.

The Cableway operates in the Table Mountain National Park, an important part of the Cape Floristic Region and the single richest floristic area in the world. This area is also a World Heritage Site. There is a lot of Fynbos vegetation on the mountain, with over 1 460 different species of plants.

Once on top you can follow paths to various look-outs, make use of the telescopes and enjoy a light meal or simply a sundowner drink in the restaurant. In summer, early evening is a great time to plan your trip as the sunsets are magnificent! Regardless of the weather, take a windbreaker as it can often be cool on the mountain top.

TIME NEEDED: At least 1-2hrs. Allow for queues in peak season.

Rates vary seasonally and as the cableway is weather dependent bookings can't be made.

Summer - first car up at 08h00 | last car up at 21h00 | last car down at 22h00
