Table Mountain Aerial cableway

Cape Town, Western Cape

Since the first person laid eyes on Table Mountain, it has exerted its powerful and charismatic pull, enchanting and drawing any and all who fall under its spell. Table Mountain's magnetism has a way of drawing people in, compelling them to reach the summit. But getting to the top was not always the effortless trip it is today.Before the Cableway was established, the only way up Cape Town's iconic mountain was by foot - a climb undertaken only by adventurous souls.One of these intrepid climbers was the famous Capetonian, Lady Anne Barnard. In 1790, upon hearing that no woman had made the climb, she mounted a small expedition, which included three "gentlemen", several slaves and her personal maid. The group summitted via Platteklip Gorge and held a lavish picnic before descending.
