10 הצעדים הטובים ביותר למציאת חניה בהר השולחן

#1 You’re late

Most people arrive late to Table Mountain; unsurprisingly, they are unable to find parking along Tafelburg Road.

Better to arrive early to find parking along Table Mountain Road. Arrive as early as 7:30 am to find better cable car spaces.

As soon as you arrive, look for the nearest available parking spot near the lower Aerial Cableway, there are no signs.

Once arrived, look out for the road markings to denote designated parking for visitors with the WHITE LINES.

#2 Wrong Space

Some things fit into unusual places, אך מכוניות אינן נכנסות לקווים האדומים והצהובים. מונפקים כרטיסים למורסו.

משטרת התנועה נותנת כרטיסים למבקרים החונים יחד עם אותם קווים אסורים, אז היזהרו מהחבר'ה ברייבנים מזויפים כחולים.

הרכבל האווירי תואם ושותף לתלונות שהוגשו על ידי מבקרים שהמכוניות שלהם חונות או עצמן.

אז המשיכו בצד ימין של הקו וחנו יחד עם הרכבל של הר השולחן במקום בו הוא בטוח.

#3 חניה לא בטוחה

Many complain about the lack of vigilance on the part of the community for CAR BREAK-INS. Watch out for number 3.

Hotspots for crime include Table Mountain, why? Because it’s an easy target. Criminals love to target cars with belongings.

Safely proceed up the cable car WITH all of your personal belongings, including wallets, ID, and cellphones.

Unsafe parking is a community effort aimed at limiting the number of crime incidences happening in Table Mountain Cape Town.

#4 Best areas

מתחת להר השולחן יש שלל מקומות חניה ליד הכניסה למסלול הצינורות, שימו לב - אתם מוזמנים.

אזורי חניה אחרים המציעים את הטוב ביותר מבחינת זמינות בעונת השיא הם הכניסה לערוץ פלאטקליפ.

אם עדיין, הרכבל תפוס, ואז נסה ממש לפני חניית המונית, אפילו מול הודו ונסטר וכניסה למשרד הכרטיסים.

על כל פנים, אם הרכבל עובד, אז אין מזל, פשוט פגעת ביום לא נכון, או שאתה מאוחר מדי. נסה שוב מחר או המתן מספר דקות.

#5 העונות שונות

Winter is different from summer, and so on, keep to the seasons on Table Mountain that are off-peak – like winter.

The weather in winter is also good, no complaints and the days are perfect for Table Mountain without parking issues.

Now complain about Table Mountain’s parking, speaking of which, let’s ask the Cableway to invest in some proper shuttles.

Services from Cable Town, like City Sightseeing, offer transport in terms of their touring tickets services.

#6 Inefficient cars

One person per car for four people fitting inside a car can build up quickly on Table Mountain – invite some friends.

Families are right, there are no complaints more other than the SUV which parks nearly 1.5 spaces.

Remember to park on the lines when using a large vehicle. Cars are inefficient when compared to shuttle busses parking.

Tour vehicles have it easy; right outside the ticket sales office, there are parking spaces conveniently located for vans.

#7 Special assistance

Wheelchairs are permitted to enter the Cableway access zone, usually limited to drop-offs.

The round-about type intersection can handle only a few cars at a time – so move on when not being used.

Staff at the cable car will assure you to move on while the next vehicle steps in to deliver the guest or tour bus.

More parking is available! Stay tuned about how you can find secure parking to Table Mountain cable car.

#8 Conned sections

Bribery is rife in Cape Town; some call it the worst pandemic of the twenty-first century after COVID-19.

Illegal parking attendants working at the Table Mountain Cableway make use of conned sections.

At work, they “claim” these sections for their use and make use of illicit tactics to extort money from foreigners.

Most are gone thanks to the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway employing “legal” parking attendants – we disagree.

#9 תראה

Looking can be a gift to the eye. See the parking space two cars away in that small section? That’s yours for the taking.

Be prepared to LOOK for Table Mountain cable car parking. There are one or two spaces that meet the eye.

Sightings of places that other people do not take are rare; they do happen, so prepared to deal with the unexpected.

If you do arrive to come across any parking space that does have your name on it – take it and worry later.

#10 Parking guards

They are not parking guards, and they will make your money. Do not leave any cash unattended in your car insight.

Most are “working” for the Table Mountain Cableway, ולחלקם אין אפילו אישורים.

אחרים שואלים מעיל FAKE לעבודה ברכבל כדי שיוכלו להיזהר מהרכב שלכם בזמן שהם מחפשים כסף.

הם אכן עוזרים אך לעתים קרובות כל כך, וזה לא כל כך הרבה - מלווה חניה עשוי לעזור לך למצוא חניה.
