To avoid long queues on Table Mountain, here are some tips to consider:
1. Buy your tickets online in advance. This allows you to choose the date and time of your visit and skip the queues at the ticket office.
2. Plan to visit during off-peak times, such as before sunrise, early in the morning, or late in the afternoon, when there are fewer visitors.
3. Use the Cable Card, which is a prepaid card that allows you to skip the ticket queue and board the cable car immediately.
4. Consider hiking up the mountain instead of using the cable car. This may take longer, but it will give you a unique and rewarding experience and save you the ticket price.
5. Join a guided tour. Many tour operators offer guided tours to Table Mountain, and they may have exclusive access or fast-track entry to the cableway.
6. Consider using Cableway’s Wi-Fi portal to purchase your tickets on your mobile device, which can also save time.
Be sure to check the weather before your visit, as the cableway may close during high winds or inclement weather. This can help you avoid arriving and finding a long queue only to be disappointed if the cableway is closed.
