Some of best views of Cape Town are from the Table Mountain Cableway, a unique and 87-year- old method of seeing the wonders of the city. Travel up to the summit of the majestic flat-topped mountain and be astounded by vistas of the Mother City, Robben Island and the Peninsula.
The gentle ride in the rotating state-of-the-art cable car takes visitors from the lower station to the top in around 5 minutes. The the top of the mountain is a self-service buffet café while you can always pack a picnic and enjoy what still is part of a national park.
You will be 3,500ft above the city and here, in this unique location, you will find rock hyrax, lizards, butterflies and the odd porcupine. There is also a wide variety of birdlife from eagles to sunbirds flying above great patches of fynbos, the Cape’s indigenous flora.
Well worth a visit when you are in Cape Town.
