Table Mountain Aerial Cable Way

Get the best views from the top of Table Mountain!

The view from the top of Table Mountain includes the city of Cape Town, the Helderberg mountains, Bloubergstrand (literally “blue mountain beach”), Sunset Beach, Devil’s Peak, the 12 Apostles, Camps Bay, Robben Island, Signal Hill and Lion’s Head, and a bird’s eye view of the Cape Town Stadium in Greenpoint, built for the 2010 FIFA World Cup™.

There are three different short walks you could take at the top: The Dassie, Agama and Klipspringer. There are also ample options for longer trails for more serious hikers, for example, along the top of the mountain and down to the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, or even further along, to the Silvermine Nature Reserve.

Short guided walks depart from the Twelve Apostles Terrace (below the Shop at the Top and the Table Mountain Café) on the hour from 9h00 – 15h00 and are free of charge.

If you are feeling adventurous, you could abseil down a cliff face with Abseil Africa.

Our Shop at the Top sells a range of items, jackets to keep you warm to postcards which you send to friends and family.

Children thoroughly enjoy the experience and will have plenty to take in. Several plaques on the mountain are of interest to visitors of all ages.

If you feel like a tasty meal with while looking out on gorgeous views, the Table Mountain Café will cater for this.

There are few better places in the world to watch the sunset than at the top of Table Mountain, and you can even do so with a glass of good Cape wine or champagne in your hand.
