Not for anyone suffering from Vertigo, but a stunning view over Cape Town. The Cable Car rotates while moving.
The wait in the queues for tickets can take forever, suggest you buy your tickets in advance off the mountain to avoid the wait.
Pick a good weather day, the views over the surrounding areas are fantastic.

Walked across table to highest point 1100 meters which took 3 hours. There is a railing of sorts for the 1st 300 meters then nothing - on both sides from cable station- the only rest rooms are in the restaurant - near the cable station so visit before exploring- you will find various aluminum maps at certain intersections as you make your way across the table. It is better to visit in cape towns spring which is from October thru December dont forget allergy meds as i initially did is sneeze.

Table Mountain is definitely one of the Wonders of the World. It stands proudly besides the city of Cape Town and creates one of the most spectacular backdrops that you will see anywhere in the world.

We booked our tickets online and there was about a 1 hour wait till we could go up on the Cableway. It was a Saturday as well as a long weekend in South Africa, so understandably it was busy. Once you reach the top of the mountain you are awestruck at the amazing views of Cape Town. You literally have a 360 degree view of the city and it’s surroundings. There is a nice restaurant and souvenir shop at the top of the mountain and you have the opportunity to take memorable photos.

Visiting Table Mountain is definitely one for the bucket list and i would highly recommend any visitor to South Africa to visit it.
