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.

    • Trip to Bhutan

      Hotels provided were okay but all the Hotels were given at remote areas, away from the main town. Cab & Driver were okay but we had to pass through very anxious moments to get their details in time (especially for our pick up from Bagdogra). Further, we were brought from Thimpu to Phuentsholing in a Wagon R, while as per agreement, the Cab should have been either a Creta or Tucson in Bhutan. The services of Travel Agent were far below from expectations. Travel Triangle representative Ishveer Kaur was just unapproachable over mail or phone (emails to her returned undelivered and phone remain unanswered). The WhatsApp group created by Himavat Destination was highly irresponsive as all our queries in the group remained unanswered. Even we had to face immence anxiety and hardships in getting Permit at Phuentsholing since the representative of Himavat Destination looked ineffective and helpless. Had we not taken that much of trouble ourselves on 7th of October, 2019, our entire trip of Bhutan might be in doldrums since next three days the Immigration office at Bhutanwas closed on account of Festival. The only silverlining we found in Ms RINA THAPA, our Tour Coordinator from Himavat Destination stationed in Siliguri, who inspite of being on Medical leave, came for our rescue whenever we landed into problem and as & when things came to her knowledge. I can very well say that we could complete our Bhutan only due to her. Our best memories of the Trip were on a day in Paro, when we visited Chelela Pass and a day in Thimpu, when we visited Buddha Point, Hindu Temple and Tashichhoedzong (the seat of Government which houses Secretariat).

    • Trip to Singapore

      Though there were some hiccups , overall experience was very Good. My sincere appreciation to Mr. Prince from Deft organizers as he was helpful all the time. Cruise experience was excellent. Some of experiences noted here as below- Importantly, it was agreed to provide gifts for kids as part of package, which were not provided. However, it was agreed to deliver at my house through courier. 1. 1st day pickup was delayed from Singapore airport. 2. No pickup to Hotel was arranged at Malaysia. Self cab was arranged after a long wait. 3. Hidden service charge of Cruise not intimated proir which is around 168 SGD~9240 INR. 4. As per itenary fountain of wealth in singapore was not shown. Little India and China Town was just shown from vehicle. To cater other co passengers requirement, we were taken to other place like flyer which was not part of the package and additional cost. Madame Tussads was not shown. 5. Travel from Singapore to Malaysia was hectic in Coach with kids. Considering kids, atleast flight should have been booked. 6. Cruise experience was good. But preference should have been given for balcony rooms . Opinion should have taken prior to booking 7.Time in genting highlands was not sufficient, should have well planned.

      Excellent trip ..... Happy with the appearance of cab driver and trip arrenger mr sumit and really enjoyed a lot. the hotel in shimla was good in decoration and quality but in very far from shimla main town and road conditions are very bad have to improve that point and after 10 pm when returning to hotel saw a tendua crossing the road so I was not happy with that matter and inform mr sumit at that time. Very bad response from kasturi as when ever called regarding any issue on trip she not even pickup my call also not call me back so very much disappointed with the company's contact person but walk holiday is fantastic and thanking mr sumit for his very quick response and help. Thanking mr jogindar and kuldeep for their humble and gentle behaviour. Other wise all are good but request you to provide a driver with voucher so that he can aware of the plan. River rafting and hotel golden Apple resort view.

    • Trip to Himachal

      I'm highly impressed with the level of services I've received at each point for our Manali trip by Travel Light (Tripmarlo) and TravelTriangle. From pocket friendly trip packages to easy payment process, from bus to cab boarding-deboarding, from hotel check-in to sight seeing. A special thanks to our travel consultant Kanhaiya Gupta who was responsive and personalised our travel package as per our comfort and requirements. Appreciate all the efforts he had put into making this trip easy and safe for girl travellers. Our cab pilot was punctual and shared alot of information about the place. A shout out to the Hotel Out Town located at the heart of Manali-Aleo with a scenic view of entire Manali at our feet and Snow top mountains at sky above. The hotel staff was very polite and generous. The breakfast and dinner served was delicious. This trip was only possible with constant efforts of your team and each step made it memorable. I'm extremely likely to refer them and book my next trip. Thank you.

    • Trip to Cape Town

      Hi sirs Thanks for arranging our South Africa tour consisting of 12N / 13 Days. Would like to give some fair feedback for your reference and records and corrective actions wherever necessary. The feedback is graded on a scale ranging from 9 to 1, where 9 is the best and 1 you can understand. I will be rating the following for your benefit of better understanding – Hotels for Stay Breakfast in the same hotels Transportation / Logistics Drivers Local numbers for emergency calls for any requirement Starting with Hotel for Stay – Peermont Suites – Comfortable stay but so great, hence would like to give rating of 6 Breakfast in the above hotel was good but not many choices, hence would like to rate it as 7 Kruger Park Lodge – Comfortable stay, we liked it. Hence would like to give rating of 8 Breakfast in the above was just ok and nothing great, hence rating is 5 Sun Soho – very compact room, child bed is a sofa converted into bed, my son is almost 6 ft. hence rating is 6 Breakfast in the above hotel is good, manageable. Would like to rate it as 7 Blackwaters River Lodge – Pls do not recommend this place, its very pathetic. Only plus point is it is close to Knysna. Otherwise there is no reason why this hotel was given to us. We had to travel to go places. Would like to give ratings 4 Breakfast in the above hotel is also very pathetic. We were the only guests in this hotel and the hardly any choices in food. Hence we would like to rate it as below 3 Holiday Inn – Name is big, but the room is very small to accommodate 3 people in the room. It was just ordinary room with a double bed ( just not enough for two people to sleep ) and a single bed. Hence, would like to rate this stay of 5 Breakfast in the above hotel was just fine. Its ok. Hence rating may be like 6. Transportation / Logistics was good all thru. Good vehicles given to us. Would like to rate it as 9 Drivers – Both Haroon Ismail upto drop to Johannesburg after 6 days and thereafter Sipho from pick from George airport till drop us back to Cape Town international airport were very good. They were humble, obedient and very supportive. We like both and would like to rate them as 9. Local contacts for emergency was just fine. However, we enjoyed the full tour without any problems and your arrangements were fine. The Shark Cage dive was cancelled by the tour agent there due to sea roughness as told us. They said they would refund money to you. Pls let me know how you want to refund us the same. Many Thanks once again for arranging the tour for us. Regards / Ramesh

    • Trip to Kerala

      The overall experience was good due to the cab driver otherwise GSK had provided hotel for Munnar which was 1.5 hour up & 1.5 hour down from the main town so mostly 3 hours of our journey was consumed by travelling which they could have saved by providing stay at munnar itself. And our last day was at Kovalam that too which they provided was around 10 Kms far from beach and at the time of booking they didn't ask wheather we wanted beach facing or not and the quality of room was not upto mark.......And even the cab driver was not updated where to take as per itienary ..............................So dont go for GSK travels in future

    • Trip to Kerala

      Though everything went well but things could have been better. Below is my detailed Feedback: 1. Hotel (Summer Castle) in Munnar was 18 Km away from the tourist attractions. We can ignore that once but not the hospitality received at Hotel. No Hot Water in the room, Intercom Not working, WiFi not working, Pathetic Breakfast Menu and Dinner menu not as per what they charge. Overall, Very Poor Experince at Munnar Hotel. 2. Hotel Spice Inn in Thekkady is excellent but it is 12 Kms away from town and its literally on Highway. So You can't really go to market or town for evening walk etc. 3. Cab Driver: He left us under Scorching sun at Alleppy to save Parking charges while we were waiting for House Boat Owner to pick us up . It literally took them 1 hour to pick us . Also, House Boat was not anchored at Starting Point but was there somewhere mid of the Lake. So they arranged a power boat to take us to House boat. This process wasted 1.5 Hours and we checked in House Boat at 1.30 pm instead of 12 pm. Cab Driver always giving some or the other excuses for locations which we wanted to visit. Overall, ok-ok kind of experience (not too good, not too bad) .

      Hotel staffs were helpful and cooperative. The rooms in hotel at Alleppy were in different building. Last day at Cochin the agent had booked another guests before conclusion of our trip and we were not able to see the Cochin sight seeing. The hotel in Munnar was also about 8 kms. from Munnar town.

      I have already filled up the requisite testimony in the provided format and handed over to the chauffeur. Eliya Nuwara was the best destination but hotel should have been in the town itself. Similarly in Colombo. Enjoyed thoroughly. Thanks for providing the services of Mr. Sujith, who was exceptionally co-operative and apt.
