The Aerial Cableway provides easy access to the top of Table Mountain to approximately 800 000 people every year. On 29 December 2004, the cableway passed its 16 millionth visitor.
The purpose of riding in the cableway is to reach the top of Table Mountain, but the trip up is an outing all on its own. You are gently transported both up and down the mountain without a fuss, and the journey takes just over 5 minutes.
During your trip, you can enjoy 360 degree views of the Cape Peninsula.
Once you get to the top of the mountain, there is a lot to see and do - see "Table Mountain National Park" for more information.
The cableway operates 7 days a week and trips leave every 10 - 15 minutes.
First up 08h00, last up 17h30, last down 18h30 - 21h30 (depending on the time of year)
Please note: The cableway will be closed from Monday 27 July 2015 to Sunday 9 August 2015 for annual maintenance.
You can but tickets at: https://www.webtickets.co.za/events/featured/table-mountain-cableway/ and they vary in price.
Getting to the mountain:
Parking can sometimes be hard to find on busy days, and you can end up more than 1km away. The Cableway can be reached by public transport: the Cape Town Integrated Rapid Transit system, MyCiTi stops at the top of Kloof Nek Road and a convenient Shuttle service takes visitors to the Lower Cable Station. A number of Route options take visitors to the Kloof Nek Road stop. Another great way to get to the mountain is with the City Sightseeing's Hop-On Hop-Off Bus, a service that runs every 20 minutes and does an 80 minute round trip, stopping at a number of tourist attractions. You can also purchase your Cable Car Tickets directly from the City Sightseeing Bus drivers.
