Cable car was great, if busy. Very organised but remember to take a coat as going up gets very cold.

Our visit to Table Mountain via the Cable Way was a First Class First World experience with friendly efficient staff.

TIP: rather get your tickets online to save some time queuing (which is not that much of a painful process) and get Uber to drop and collect you since parking problems can be spotted miles down the road on your way up.

Get tickets online before you go to the site.
Order your tickets on the phone, the staff will scan your phone, just have them pulled up on your browser.

Go in the afternoon about 1600, the wait is far shorter, I promise. Unless you wanna hike down so plan on a 2.5 hour hike.

The votes are terrific. Take the free tour at the top, don't skip that it's only 45 minutes and you'll learn allot.

Take water!

The only downside is you'll spend a day waiting if you go before 1600, so plan on that

Or queue.............
An impressive way to get up and down the mountain if you don’t want to hike, and environmentally impressive as it also takes up water in tanks underneath which serve as weights on a windy day. Fab views but a bit of a squash (62 people) and a long queue to get down - but just more time to enjoy the view whilst waiting!

One of the highlights of Cape Town - you can walk up (2 hours and its strenuous) or take the cable car (5 minutes) - lots to explore on top - cute café and gift shop - be warned - GET THERE EARLY
