  • Cape Town’s most famous landmark – a quick spin by revolving cable car to the 1 086m summit will give the visitor a grand view of one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and of course the equally famous South African `Alcatraz’ – Robben Island.

    *Note
    The Cableway does not take bookings due to the fact that they are weather dependent!
    The cable cars depart every 10-15 minutes
