Recently voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the Natural World, Table Mountain is one of Cape Town’s most popular attractions. The trip up to the summit in one of two revolving cable cars takes less than 10 minutes, and offers magnificent views of the surrounding city and the ocean beyond (weather permitting).
Families can spend the better part of the day exploring the summit by taking one of three available walks. There is also a cafe and deli where visitors can collect a ready made picnic pack.
The cableway has extended operating hours in summer and shuts down for about 3 – 6 weeks in the middle of winter for routine maintenance.
