This was one of the best highlights of our trip to Cape Town. We could not go the day before because of the windy conditions, so we postponed it for the next day. We are so glad that we did because when the cable car made it to the top, the clouds were thick and covered the mountain. This is know as the "table cloth". Walking through the clouds, seeing the unique flora, and enjoying the spectacular views of Cape Town from on top of the mountain is truly a "once in a lifetime" experience. The wait is not that long, and the line moves pretty quick. Bring a jacket though!

I had to cancel my first trip due to high winds and weather. Weather is always tricky if you take the car. They canceled trips up the mountain the day I planned to go. So plan to get it out of the way in the AM. The car floor moves in a circle with an open window for you to catch some pics and get the full effect. If I had more time I would have totally LOVED to climb it. Get a great workout in.. But just did not have the 2 hours just to climb up... the view is worth the trip. There are some great spots where it's quiet where you can play with your camera to take the perfect shot!
