“Up, Up and Away”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014

Waited on line for about 20 minutes before boarding. Cable car climbed up through the clouds and the experience was similar to being on an airplane. Very exciting. Once upon Table Mountain there were varying degrees of clouds and when they broke, the views of the harbor were magnificent.

“Brilliant, but scary!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

Loved South Africa and Cape Town, so couldn't leave without visiting Table Mountain. Sure you can climb, but the cable car was irresistible.

As the cable car goes up it also goes round to take advantage of the spectacular views, and just before you arrive on top, it lifts straight up!

Wonderful if you have the stomach for it.

“Spectacular!!! Amazing!!!! Incredible!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

As a returning Capetonian, I am always awe-struck when I look at the majestic, towering, regal natural icon that is Table Mountain. The views of it and from it are breathtaking! The Aerial Cableway do a magnificent job of making a visit to Table Mountain pleasant and memorable. Sadly, my daughters were disappointed that there were no dassies (rock hyrax) in sight on the day we visited, but their clambering up and down the rocks and seeing a few lizards more than made up for it. The revolving floor in the cable car is a fantastic innovation. Just a wonderful experience.
