Table Mountain Cableway

Table Mountain is without a doubt the most popular and iconic tourist attraction in Cape Town. Getting to the top of the mountain by cable car is an amazing experience and offers outstanding views of the city bowl and its surrounds. The rotating 765 metre long vertical cable car ride takes around four to five minutes and is worth every cent.

There are various ways to get to the cable station at the bottom of the mountain including the MyCity Bus, the CitySightseeing Bus, a metered taxi or your own private transport. Even though tickets are available at the cable station, our recommendation is to book your ticket online and make your way to the cable station as early as possible to avoid the crowds and to enjoy the top of the mountain while it is uncrowded.
