Top Tips before you go:

Check on the weather: by visiting the Table Mountain homepage, calling their weather line at +27(0)21 424 8181 or sending an email to The operations are weather dependent and they will close due to gale force winds for your safety.

Dress warmly: because it gets super chilly at the summit of Table Mountain when the sun goes down so please do bring along something warm to wear. Forgot your jacket? That’s cool – they have some excellent warm clothing options for sale at the Shop at the Top.

Satisfy your hunger pangs: by visiting one of their delicious eateries, the Table Mountain Cafe and Cableway WiFi Lounge before sunset. For their operating hours, please click here.

Book your ride: using the free MyCiTi park and ride shuttle which runs until 7pm only. This also means you either have to book an Uber or a metro cab for your journey home.

Get social: by posting to Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, because if you do not, then did it even happen? We want to see your awesome sunset photos so please tag us @ctbig6 and use the hashtag #sunsetspecial.

There is no one way to explore all of the Cape Town Big 6, and much of what makes each of them so special is the variety of things to see and do at each. So if possible, take your time to explore each of the city’s most visited tourist attractions in as much depth as possible – as any local will tell you, you can spend a lifetime at each of the Big 6 and still not tire of them. Find the 3 and 4 day itineraries and tips here.
