Table Mountain Cable Car

Enjoy the best views of Cape Town from the top of Table Mountain.

The Table Mountain Cable Car was built in 1929 and has transported over 18 million visitors, 800 000 visitors per year from all over the world! 

Travelling at a speed of up to 10 meters per second the Table Mountain Cable Car takes you to the summit in under 10 minutes.

On top of that the rotating floor ensures that all passengers get a 360 degree aerial view of Cape Town and its surroundings.

Did you know that the ballast used in the Cable Cars themselves is hundreds of litres of water?! Not only does it keep the Car steady it is a convenient way to get fresh water up to the facilities at the top! Genius!!
