Fantastic views and scenery. Like the way the cable car floor rotated so that everyone could see the views. Very efficient operation. Two shops at the top with cafes etc. One of the highlights of our visit to South Africa

Hi There.The cable car does not swing but it does rotate very slowly allowing eveyone onboard to get the great views. The cable car does not operate in high winds. This is a MUST DO!!!
