We had to wait several days for cable car to be open, when we had a lovely sunny day, it meant very long queues. We had to wait over 2 hours, but it was fantastic. The cable car rotates so everyone gets a view.

By far no mountain top is as flat as this is. It gave me the best walk for viewing the city from different eyes. It looks like the whole Cape Town is infront of our Eyes.

The clouds lifted just as we arrived at the top so our view of Capetown was spectacular. Plan to spend some time walking around the top so you can view the scene from many different angles.

We could not wait to do this. Had to postpone the first day because it was too cloudy, so we were glad it cleared up the second day for us, as we were only in Cape Town two days.
