If the weather permits, you can stay on the mountain till the last car goes down.So you can go for a walk or have a meal on the top, and enjoy a longer stay on the  mountain.
The cable cars travel every 5-10 minutes and can carry up to 65 passengers at one time. It is unusual for there to be queues aside from school holiday season when there may be queues of up to 45 minutes in the mornings.
Free parking is available along Tafelberg Road leading to the lower cable station.Space has been allocated for visitors who wish to be picked up and dropped off outside the front entrance.We have allocated dedicated parking bays for tour buses and taxis.

We cannot predict what the weather will do at the top of Table Mountain, please always check for a weather update before departing home. Call the weather line on (021) 424 8181.
Always bring a warm jacket with you, as the temperature is often cooler on the summit than at the lower station.
