There are numerous short (or long) walks you can take on Table Mountain from the top of the station. Just remember that the weather can change quickly and that, despite its proximity to the city, the Mountain should be treated with respect- take the same precautions you would in any mountain range.
- The first Table Mountain cableway was opened on 4 October 1929. Since that date over eleven million people have used the service, and it's still extremely popular today. The circulating cableway provides spectacular views, offering a leisurely panorama of the city and surrounds. It's well worth the trip, but not for the nervous or vertigo-sufferers. If you're feeling adventurous, you could take the cable car to the summit and then hike down Table Mountain using one of the 550 established routes. The cableway's hours of operation are seasonal. Please check the website or call before planning your trip.
