After doing the whole Safari thing, I headed over to Cape Town. I only had a day and a half in Cape Town, so everything was basically jam packed into a day.
I was told I should go to Table Mountain as soon as it opens, as there can be a long line! And was also told to also try and go the first day, as Table Mountain closes if the winds are strong (so that if it is closed, I can try the next day).
I suggest buying tickets online as well. There are 2 lines – people who have already purchased tickets, vs people who need to buy tickets. They let all the people with pre-purchased tickets in first. They also have wifi where you wait in line, so you can easily purchase tickets while waiting inline. Even though I was one of the first groups inline to purchase a ticket, I definitely was not one of the first people to get in (especially with all the tour buses that come through!!) – That is if you decide to take the cable cars. You also have the option of hiking.
Anyways, time for pictures!
In the cable car on the way up!
