What a surprise when I arrived in Cape Town to be told that my birthday trip would be free, what a lovely idea. Staff were very friendly and helpful which was good because there are no notices to say where to go for your birthday trip. We joined a ticket que but fortunately the que worker showed us where to go. For oldies like us there is a lift so you don't have to climb hundreds of stairs.

Table mountain is the iconic symbol of Cape Town and for visitors like us from the UK it is an absolute must to visit. We had been to the base of the cable car twice and the visibility on top was poor. I was getting panicky that we might miss getting to the top but the next afternoon the skies cleared so we Ubered up and got the cable car. It has a steep climb and the floor rotates 360 degrees as it rises giving you a view all around as you reach the top of Table mountain.
The views were amazing, we could not have asked for a better view- the reality exceeded the expectation.

2nd time visiting, when to other side beyond the mountain Cafe we didn't get to see the the first time, parking is a nightmare although having your own car is convenient, I recommend the red bus or ubee/bolt. Queues were not bad we had morning entry tickets bought online, there was a queue for the actual tickets, so I recommend online purchasing. Food at mountain cafe is average with super high prices.

I took the family to Table mountain on the 2nd Jan 22 for a trip up the mountain, Covid protocols were all adhered to on the ground and entering the facility and cars etc. When entering the car I asked the Car attendant how many were allowed to travel in the car at any one time, the answer given by a nice young lady was 35. On departure the car attendant, now a being a gentleman, waited for the car to fill up, I questioned the attendant as to how many were allowed in the car and was informed up to 50, I did a quick head count and counted 52 plus attendant and there were a handful of kids that i had not counted. Max capacity is 65, their website claims 25 per trip. when i questioned the attendant again he promptly reversed the situation by trying to make a fool out of me and claiming that my mask was not covering my face properly, embarrassing me in front of the entire car. We pay good money for these trips, the cable car website states their protocol, which they should be adhering to. Further more as a concerned customer that is adhering to protocols and trying my best to make sure that my family and others are safe, I don't appreciate being made to look stupid and be embarrassed by the car attendant, when he is trying to cover up for his wrong doing.
Table mountain management, you should be ashamed of your so called trained staff.

Always a hit with friends from outside SA! It is really well organized and they’ve captured the essence of the beauty and magnificence without compromising on quality or being detrimental to the environment. They serve tasty meals with an array of drinks including wine or beer and there are lovely gifts at the gift shop.

Perfect weather, and wonderful views of Cape Town and surrounds.
We were surprised that we saw no Local dassies, the rock rabbits that used to be in abundance on table mountain

We bought our tickets online and we did not have a long queue, but we were there early on a Monday morning
