taxi fare from table bay to table mountain

Hi everyone,

Can anyone tell me the approximate cost of a taxi from Table Bay hotel on the waterfront to the cablecar at Table Mountain?

Also, is it easy to get a taxi from Table Mountain to get back to the hotel or should I make arrangements for the driver to return at a certain time? In some countries there are always lots of taxis waiting outside tourist attractions but I am not sure if this is the case in Capetown.

Thanks!

I think it was about 50 rand? You will be able to catch a taxi or a Rikki or a shuttle bus when you are done.

we just got back from Capetown and took a Taxi to Table Mountain, however, we were off of Kloof st (closer to the mountain) but really not that far from the waterfront. Yes, R50 sounds right. Also, there are taxis waiting at table mountain for people leaving.

What's a Rikki?

Thanks for the info. With the great exchange rate we are getting right now for US/CDN dollars, R50 is very cheap!

Why not combine a trip up the mountain with a tour on the open top city sightseeing bus. It stops at table mountain (as well as other places) and the tour is great.

A Rikki is a taxi service but has set "zone" fares per person-- you call the number on their website- 0861RIKKIS and they will send a rikki to pick you up from where you are:
