This fantastic beast of a mountain is well worth the sightseeing – even a toddler could enjoy the flat-topped mountain.

Tickets provided on this site are the preferred way by many choosing to buy Tickets to Table Mountain. We agree.
#3 What is the best time to go up Table Mountain cable car?
Best times go hand in hand with Cape Town weather. Some prefer mornings, while others enjoy afternoons.
We’d say pick the time that works for you and worry about the rest later. Be concerned if it’s raining or wind is above 30km/h.
Usually, during those times, the cable car is closed, and you’ll have to make other arrangements. A following day is an option.
Most often, tickets used in the morning with afternoons being the second-best option. The afternoon is equally popular.
#4 Can visitors go up Table Mountain for free on a birthday?
Yes and no, maybe. Depending on whether you are a South African citizen, we argue that everyone should be free.
Unfortunately, Table Mountain Aerial Cableway has chosen that those with valid ID stating the origins of SA are only allowed free.
Those include South African ID but also can negotiate deals with the Cableway for seniors and SA businesses.
