You cannot beat the view! We were lucky to get to go to the top. It was too cloudy for several days before we there and it was cloudy again the day after we went. If you get a chance to take the cableway, you should definitely do it.

The floor of the cable car rotates so that each person in the car gets a variety of views as she goes up the mountain. There are many walk options (with different lengths and animals) at the park when you get off the car at the top. Great views if you have a clear day; we were lucky in that regard.

Prior to our arrival in Cape Town, we were warned about the fickle weather, particularly the unpredictable clouds that rolls down the side of Table Mountain - we were prepared to be disappointed but......a picture perfect day! How lucky were we to experience such wonderful weather in Cape Town. Our great tour guide Tracy took us up the Mountain early on a perfect afternoon. The cable car folks got us onboard quickly and efficiently and we enjoyed a relatively quick trip to the top. Love the way it rotates to provide a full view of the city below us. Price (41 rand = 4 Aussie $$s) was exceptional value.

If you're in Cape Town, you must get to the top of Table Mountain and see the view, the cable car obviously is the easiest sway to do it. Don't need to book in advance and would advise against it, cus the experience will be based on the weather. Check in the morning and if it's clear, get a taxi straight to the cable car early. The cable car itself rotates on the way up, so there's no need to rush to a good vantage point. Once up there the views are spectacular. A must do!
