Take it easy on the cable car

A trip to Cape Town wouldn’t be complete without a trip up the infamous Table Mountain. The quickest way to do it is by taking a cable car; it will take you about 5 mins to get right to the very top (P.S. The cable-car is free to residents on their birthdays; just bring your ID along)

There are two cable car that run frequently (weather permitting); each carries about 65 people at a time and gives you the chance to enjoy the beautiful city views on your way up and down. Once at the top, you’ll be treated to breath-taking views of the city, Robben Island, the Twelve Apostles mountain range, Camps bay and beyond.

Once you taken your quota of photo’s, stroll around the table top and enjoy the fresh air mixed in with the scents of dassies, fynbos and coffee wafting from the restaurant. You can even choose to do the Dassie or Klipspringer walks which will take you to parts of the mountain you might otherwise miss.
