Quick tips

For greater convenience, buy your tickets online before you arrive. A morning ticket is valid between 08:00 and 13:00 (you don’t have to come down at 13:00 – you can stay longer, if you would like more time to soak up the experience)
The Cableway is generally quieter in the afternoon, so we encourage you to buy an afternoon ticket, which is valid from 13:00 onwards

Cape Town’s long, dry summer months between November and February provide the best conditions for visiting, and the Cableway operates later into the evening during this time. Check our operating times
Summer temperatures range between 15°C and 27°C, while Cape Town winters average between 7°C and 20°C. In general, expect mild winters and pleasant summers. Get a full weather forecast here

Conditions between the Lower and Upper Cable Stations can vary considerably. Please bring a warm jacket, sun lotion, good walking shoes, water, sunglasses and some spending money. And don’t forget your camera!
The Cableway is wheelchair accessible, and yes, some parts at the top are too. There is dedicated disabled parking. Check out our wheelchair map
With the exception of guide dogs, dogs (with or without a leash) are not allowed to travel in the cable car due to health and safety reasons
As Table Mountain is an urban park, please exercise the same commonsense and security precautions that you would anywhere else in the world. Do not hike alone on the mountain. Do not attract unwanted attention by openly displaying cash, cameras or other valuables
Please make sure you’ve collected all of your personal items before boarding the cable car down. For lost property queries and collections, please email lostproperty@tablemountain.net
