A must do trip if you are in the Cape Town area. Amazing views all across the city and sea! The cable car is quick and reasonably priced too!

Breathtaking views. Must go here if you visit Capetown. Spend the whole day there. Bring your kids. Bring your grandma. Bring everyone. Wear a light jacket up there because it’s quite chilly. The line is crazy though. Get there early morning to beat the crowd....More
