Table Mountain Aerial Cableway, Cape Town (South Africa)

Table Mountain, Cape Town exists as a very important destination for the tourists. Standing, 1085 m high, the Table Mountain is a flat topped mountain which forms a major landmark that overlooks the Cape Town city. This mesmerising mountain is a part of the Table Mountain national park and is found in the Cape Fold Belt mountain range. It often remains covered in a cloud and hence, many know of it as ‘table cloth’. The destination offers many interesting activities that include using the cableway, hiking etc. Table mountain aerial cableway opened in the year 1929 which offers 1 to 3 different routes for reaching the top. It also offers abseiling and is currently the highest abseil in the world with a height of 112m. The mountain has thousands of species of plants n animals many of which are endemic and has the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens on its right.

History Of Table Mountain

Historically, Antonio de Saldanha was the first European who landed in Table Bay and he climbed this mountain in 1503 and called it Taboa do Cabo. Three blockhouses were ordered to be built on the mountain in 1796. They were the king’s blockhouse, Duke of York or the queen’s blockhouse n the Prince of Wales blockhouse. Out of the three, only the King’s blockhouse remains in good shape and is accessible while the rest of the two have got ruined. Five dams that include the woodhead, Hely-Hutchinson, De Villiers, Alexandria and Victoria reservoirs got opened on the Black Table between the years 1896 and 1907 to meet out the water needs of Cape Town. Table Mountain national Park was proclaimed by the president of that time as the Cape Peninsula National Park on 29 May 1998. It was included in the list of the new Seven Wonders of the World in 2011. They say that you’ve really missed something if you haven’t been to the Table Mountain even after being in Cape Town.

Adventure Activities At Table Mountain

There are a host of activities to try at Table Mountain in Cape Town. Explore this mountain top by taking a trek or a cable way and find out what are the adventure activities to do here. 

Abseiling- it is an activity where you take the descent from the Table Mountain. A climbing harness will be strapped at your waist, allowing you to take a controlled descent from the top. Get a glimpse of the whole city while you perform this activity. Make sure to perform this under supervision. 

Ride up to the Table Mountain- there is no exciting activity than taking up a Cable Car drive up to the flat top of Table Mountain. It is a 5-minute exciting ride to the top but what makes it more thrilling is that the cable car rotates as it moves. Enjoy a bird’s eye view of Cape Town as you ascend. 

Take a guided walk - leisure walks take place everyday from 09.00 am to 03.00 pm from the Twelve Apostles Terrace. A guided walk of thirty minutes is conducted by the staff who share interesting stories about the whole place. It is an interesting activity to do at Table Mountain, and is best enjoyed with friends and family.

Only Communication sometimes was missing! Otherwise overall it was very good and good experience booking travel through MK holidays..!!

    Overall the trip was good...but can be made more enjoyable such as hotel in Capetown can be provided near beaches or on mountains ,in kynsna cruise can be made private that could have been great. Flight tickets name should be correct.

    Santosh's 14 days trip to Cape Town

    Hotels were very nice but Hotels staff were not. It seems they are not very happy with Indians around. Cab Driver were extremely good. Extremely happy with their services. Travel Agent was good. But there was multiple miscommunications. Due to that we missed out on few things like - Blyde River Canyon tour, Vineyard Tour, We couldn't spend much time on Franchoek aswell. Many memorable memories. Right from the start. Kruger was amazing spotted big 5 multiple times, amazing experience. Beautiful landscapes of Johannesburg & amazing small towns. Knysna was again amazingly beautiful, Waterfront as beautiful, Congo caves, Ostrich farm was amazing. Bungee Jumping was a thrilling experience. Beautiful Town of Franchoek was amazing. Another thrilling experience of Shark Cage dive, exiting one. Then trip to capetown & amazing 12 apostles were great. Beautiful landscapes & sea & food. Loved every bit of this country. Beautiful & Thrilling South Africa

    Abhinav's 9 days trip to Cape Town

    we booked our south africa trip from Mk holiday , thinking that it's got most of the bookings for SA from Travel triangle only later to find out how wrong we were. there is a serious lack in the pro activeness from the agent/TT , i had to personally follow up on each & every thing from them, despite the follow there we so many goof ups that happened from their end. Be assured that if you book from him it's not going to be a pleasant experience & be prepared to follow up every day for tickets & vouchers to be send to you, which by the way you've already paid for in advance. below i'll list down the good & the bad for the trip in detail Good 1. Good deal which would fit in your budget & probably offering the best rates. 2. the drivers that take you around are decent, but not that knowledgeable, they would be more like just drivers & not exactly tour guides, so be really sure of what you wanna do & research properly if booking with them Bad 1. Hotel & voucher are shared only like 2-3 days before your trip - we had booked our trip well in advance i.e. 6 months, but still all our bookings happened at the last minute just two days before our departure 2. On arrival at Joburg we were supposed to do a city tour as per the itinerary, but the same was not booked in advance & arrangements were made after we arrived at the hotel, a total mess of a welcome to the trip!! 3. All the rooms booked will be the cheapest ones, & very small, horrible was the room booked for us in cape town, it was a room which had a toilet inside it, without any partition & extremely small - we eventually had to request the hotel to upgrade us to a better room, which they were able to do the next day as they had vacant rooms available, else we might have had to change our hotels by paying extra 4. doesn't suggest a proper itinerary for e.g. Tsitsikamma National Park is really beautiful & one can take one night stay in the park to experience it better, but nothing of such was ever suggested by him. another such eg. we could have ideally stayed back in George while returning from outdshoorn/cango rather than going to knysna all the way & travel to capetown the next day while again passing from george on the way 5. probably the biggest goof up of the trip was that he forgot to book our hotel in capetown for the entire duration of our stay i.e. out of the 4 nights we had in capetown, hotel stay was only done for 3 nights & despite frantically calling him about it, he assured that he'll do the stay for the 4 night , to which he obviously couldn't as the hotel was completely booked for that night. 6. Lastly, the entire was filled with uncertainty about tours, driver details, & most importantly the room booking for the last day. i would really suggest not to book your trip with them as it's really not worth it that you being on vacation are being stressed about things & eventually end up spoiling your trip.

    The trip to south africa was planned and customized very well according to my needs by mr inderjot, our travel agent from flyocity. He was in contact the whole time, was up to date on our check ins in hotels and all transfers. Our all events went as planned hassle free. The only one little thing that was okay and not the best were the hotels which were around 10kms minimum far away from the main city. That caused a little bit of problems. But rest all was bang on and everything was well executed by our travel agent. Sterkfointan caves,Paraglyding, scenic beauty of SA on garden route, Suspension Bridge, Table Mountain

    Vishal's 7 days trip to Cape Town

    Hotels were good, but the taxi driver offered were really terrible. They were in such a hurry as if they had to catch some return flights to their home. The best part being that they will not drive at night, whatsoever the case may be. Instead they will pick u up in 6:00 in the morning and then make you wait for hours on the airport or wherever the destination is. Surprisingly our agent also didn't bother once we are on the trip. They would just ask you to adhere to the timelines as if it was a group package. It's a better option to book in group rather than booking private tour then. Further , I would give a 3 star just for the ease of getting Visa and thereafter providing vouchers and other services like airport pick up and drop on time. Rest the guidance part during the trip was completely missing. And no doubt, SA is a very good country with very good people., excellent landscape, much to see and witness. The experience in the country was too great.
