Board the “aerial cableway” and you’ll soon be climbing 765 meters (2,510 feet) to the top of Table Mountain, with views of the city and Table Bay. The car rotates on its ascent, giving everyone a 360-degree view. At the summit, there is a good restaurant and a shop selling snacks and souvenirs. Many visitors hike up the mountain and catch the cable car down, or vice versa. There are also numerous shorter walks from the cable-car station. The cableway is in service most of the year, and runs from 8 a.m. until the last car leaves the top station at 7 p.m. Bordering Table Mountain National Park, the world-famous Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, founded in 1913, includes 90 acres of landscaped grounds, a greenhouse, a restaurant and a store selling plants and gardening items. The garden also hosts a popular series of summer concerts.
