Plan your trip up Table Mountain by consulting the weather forecast, it will be most pleasant if the sky is clear and the wind is not blowing too hard.  The Cableway closes in high wind conditions. 

To help you with a reliable weather report we have installed a very useful tool in the main left side menu bar from Check the forecast for the days you plan to try go up Table Mountain in the Cable Car, try to pick the day that has the least wind and the most sunshine forecast - it can be very cold up there even in Summer, so keep some warm clothes with you!

If you are planning to hike up and take the Cable Car down then be aware of the changing weather patterns, hypothermia is one of the greatest dangers when hiking.  See our Hiking Safety Tips for advice.
