Summer season is peak tourist season for Table Mountain in Cape Town, and it’s during summer when days are hot and lovely for a trip in the cable car. However, there are often long queues to be expected due to the peak time of the year. There are different ticket options and you could also choose a ticket for the morning or afternoon. However, mornings can be quite crowded so an afternoon ticket could work even better for some. Weekdays are also far better than public holidays and weekends because the queues are shorter. In Season December is packed with tourists while January, February and March is less busy, but the weather still is hot. The air is a lot cooler on top of the mountain and when the “tablecloth” cloud hovers over the mountain, it often brings with it cold misty or dewy air.
Once you reach the top of the mountain you can pop in at the Table Mountain Cafe for breakfast, lunch or something from the gourmet deli and refuel for your return to ground level. There is also a Wifi Lounge where you can plug in and recharge your devices, or check your mail and other online things and have a bite to eat as well as relax and enjoy the views on the Wifi Lounge balcony.
