Best views of the city and the cape. Need to make sure you go up when the visibility is good. We had to wait for an hour to get some limited visibility but it was worth it.

This was the first thing my wife and I did when we got to Cape Town. The views are simply spectacular from the city view to the coastal view and then to the view of the mountains. I cannot say enough going to this nature...More

Closed when windy or cloudy. Despite cloud cover the Gorge walk 1.5km from the lower cable car station is accessible with 50m visibility higher up and on top of Table Mountain. More of a hiking experience than a phot opportunity.

After hiking Lion's head, I foolishly thought I could do table mountain. Ended up taking the aerial cableway instead. The floor spins so everyone gets the full experience

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!!!
