Established in 1929, the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway takes visitors right to the top in one of two cable cars, each with rotating floors and huge windows to ensure that your views while travelling to the top are almost as spectacular as those from the summit.

Taj Cape Town is close to the famous Company Gardens and the Iziko South African Museum, founded in 1825 and taking care of more than 1.5-million items of cultural and scientific significance. Right across Taj Cape Town is Slave Lodge, built to house the slaves who worked in the Gardens.
