Table Mountain Cableway

A visit to Cape Town can never be complete without a trip up Table Mountain. From the top of Table Mountain you have wonderful views over the city and Table Bay, the Atlantic coastline down to the end of the Cape Peninsula and inland in the direction of the Mountains of the Cape Winelands. There are a number of pathways that lead to different viewpoints with wonderful photo opportunities.

The Rotair Aerial Cableway has been in operation since October 1997. The cable cars have a round shape which fulfils two functions. Firstly, thanks to the turning floor, passengers can enjoy a 360-degree panoramic view. Secondly it offers excellent aerodynamics in high winds. The cable cars have a carrying capacity of 65 people each or 900 people per hour, and can carry a weight of 5200 kg. The cars can attain a maximum speed of 10 metres per second. The lengths of the cables used are 1200m. The cables weigh 18 tonnes. The cable cars carry 4000 litres of water used for ballast when strong winds prevail. They also supply fresh water to the top of the mountain for visitors. The cableway works on a counter weight system weighing 134 tons each.
