There are various hiking trails high (steep and short, more surface-wide and slightly longer). Whoever chooses the gondola must va. patience in good weather. Due to the reviews here, we decided to go on the gondola only in the afternoon and waited just over 60 minutes. The gondola is big around driving fast. It is best to ask someone from the staff on site what the current waiting time is and then decide. There is still an option to hike high. Better than 3 hours to wait
Simply breath-taking... See some of my photos taken in my business trip to Cape Town, South Africa. This place will give you a strategic view on the whole city. Make sure that you will spare some time to stay up there and see the memorable hours of The South African sunset. I am sharing some of night shots taken with my camera. This shows the whole city architecture too
Absolutely Incredible!! It doesn't matter how many times I go, I am still taken back by the beauty of this place. There are a lot of different hiking routes and the dams on top are stunning. *Please note that the Waterworks museum on top is now open by appointment only.
