Table Mountain Aerial Cableway takes visitors on an awe-inspiring ride to the top of Table Mountain in our world class cablecars.

The best views of Cape Town are seen from the top of Table Mountain, an official New 7 Wonder of Nature. The Cableway takes visitors to the summit of Table Mountain in less than 5 minutes, and the cable car’s rotating floor ensures that all visitors get a 360 degree aerial view of the city.

Once on top, one has a view of the Cape Town city centre, Table Bay, Robben Island, Lion’s Head and Devil’s Peak, the Cape Flats out towards Khayelitsha and Mitchell’s Plain, the Hottentots Holland Mountains and even across the Table Mountain range towards Cape Point. 2km of pathways lead visitors to many vantage points to enjoy the views and tranquility. The Lower Station and Upper Cable Station, as well as its pathways, are wheelchair friendly.

Short guided walks depart from the Twelve Apostles Terrace (below the Shop at the Top and the Table Mountain Café) on the hour from 9h00 to 15h00. The guided walks are offered free of charge.

Visitor facilities at the Top Station include The Shop at the Top and the Table Mountain Café. The unique and interesting shop, located in the old stone building above the Twelve Apostles terrace, offers a wide variety of souvenirs and gifts to keep the entire family happy.

The Table Mountain Café is open for breakfast, lunch and refreshments. Menu items at the Table Mountain Café include gourmet Panini’s, pizza slices, and the Mountaineer Buffet selection that showcase traditional South African cuisine. A selection of light meals is also available. Meals may be complemented with a selection of fine wines.

Cableway tickets can be purchased online or from the ticket office. The Cableway operates weather permitting. For information call (021) 424 8181 or visit www.tablemountain.net
