Table Mountain Aerial Cableway

Enjoy stunning vista views from Cape Town's landmark flat-topped mountain.

Table Mountain Aerial Cableway ascending

Dramatic Table Mountain has long been one of South Africa’s most famous attractions; in the early 1900s, an aerial cableway was built to take visitors to the top. Its highest point, Maclears Beacon, is a gasp-worthy 3,559 feet above the sea, and has welcomed an estimated 16 million people (including Queen Elizabeth II and Sting) since the cableway's opening. Although it takes just 10 minutes to reach the summit, leave yourself plenty of time to wander around and admire the views.

Note that the cableway does shut down once a year for maintenance, so check hours of operation when you plan your visit.
