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.

    We had an amazing trip to South Africa. It is a beautiful country to visit with very hospitable people around. Everything went well without any hiccups. The hotels, cab drivers and other details were well planned by Nikhil from Besten/MK Holidays, special thanks to him. Some elements which can be improved were the visits planned during our stay at Knysna as they were quite some distance away from our hotel. Will definitely recommend Travel Triangle to others for planning their trips.

    Utkarsh's 7 days trip to Cape Town

    Would recommend the location to everyone for a must-visit Bucket list item. Would NEVER recommend the travel agent to anyone regarding any trip. About the destination: South Africa is definitely one of the best places to visit in the months of January. The weather is pleasant throughout the day with light breezes greeting you wherever you go. We were really lucky with our safari in Kwantu as we were able to sight almost all of the variety of wildlife that they have in the reserve. The stay at Kwantu was also equally comfortable. Knysna and Oudtshoorn were another pair of scenic locations and the drive from Port Elizabeth to Kwantu to Knysna & Oudtshoorn was undoubtedly one of the best drives I have ever had. The visit to Cape Town was as exciting as we were expecting and the city welcomed us with a marvelous evening sky as we drove in. The local sightseeing service available in the city was a good enough option as it drove us through almost all the places of interest within and around the city. The Table Top Mountain did live to it's grandeur and the view from up top was really breathtaking. The entire Cape peninsula as well as the town were so tiny yet so vast. The Cape Peninsula tour on the next day was equally interesting, covering the entirety of the Cape of Good Hope, the Botanical garden, Hout Bay Harbour and the most awaited Jackass Penguin colony in Boulders beach. About the travel agent: The approach of MKHolidays before and after the first payment for the trip was in dire contrast. While they were following up with us multiple times throughout the day with even minor changes in the itinerary before we made the first payment, after that we had to call them up over 4-5 times for every update or voucher request. We did no get the hotel vouchers till the very last week of our travel. The flight ticket from Johannesberg to Port Elizabeth were given to us at midnight just before the day of our flight. Without that, we had been stranded in JoBerg with no onward flight tickets. The downpayment for the car rental which was included in the travel package had not been made and I had to pay for the same from my pocket. Upon arrival in Cape Town, when we went to Holiday Inn (a 4-star property), we were told that there was no booking in our name and the hotel voucher given to us for that place was invalid. All calls to MKHolidays went unanswered & the Travel Triangle representative merely shrugged off saying that he would not be able to help as the bookings were under the agent's purview. I had to pay for the first night from my own pocket. Upon the next day, I was told that the hotel booked for me was the Holiday Inn Express (a 3-star property), even though the package specifically included the other property. We reluctantly moved to Holiday Inn Express, only to realize that our booking there was cancelled due to a no-show the previous night. We had to wait for a longer time for the bookings to get re-listed. The vouchers for each day's activity were given to us only on the previous midnight. This caused an aura of uncertainty throughout our trip as we never knew what time we had to wake up the next day for the pickup. Had South Africa not been that marvelous a country, the callous approach of the travel agent during the trip would definitely have ruined the experience for us.

    Mumbai

    Vidhan's 11 days trip to Cape Town

    It was a troubled trip with respect to service of the agent since day 1. Attention to detail to itenary was very poor. First they were denying many inclusion but on closer scrutiny of the itenary they finally relented. Second there was lots of errors regarding to hotel and dates. I had to check each and every voucher they provided and it used to be wrong on couple of occasions. Had to get them rectified. Also had to chase them for vouchers till the last minute inspite of repeated reminders. They never even told about baggage allowance of internal flights and tried to play fraud on each point. It was my honeymoon and not once in South Africa and Seychelles was there any honeymoon decoration and goodies. Cab from Cape town to Kynsna was cancelled last minute and they arranged 1 at the nth hour delaying my program by 2 hrs. Over all the agency lacks a clear intent and is very deceptive
