Overnight? Stay at accommodation in V&A Waterfront, in Western Cape

Reminiscent of the mammoth London Eye in the UK, the Cape Wheel is an observation wheel that continues to awe visitors that are exploring the Mother City of Cape Town. This giant wheel is located at the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, which continues to be one of South Africa’s top tourist attractions for its hundreds of shops, restaurants, arts and crafts.

The Cape Wheel has become an iconic part of the Waterfront, and the prime place from which to see Table Mountain, Signal Hill, the Bo-Kaap, and the elegant working harbour from new heights. The highest point that the cabins reach is 40 metres above the ground. The 30 cabins are completely enclosed but transparent, affording their occupants a 360-degree view of the splendour of Cape Town. In fact, the views extend as far as the mountains of Paarl; and all the way to Robben Island, which is a few kilometres from the coast.

The cabins are air-conditioned for the ultimate in comfort. The ride lasts 12 to 14 minutes, allowing four revolutions. There are two cabins that can accommodate visitors that are bound to wheelchairs.

The photographic opportunities from the cabins of the Cape Wheel are endless, and assure keen photographers of breath-taking images that are set against idyllic backdrops.

A portion of the proceeds that are earned by the Cape Wheel are set aside for charity.

The Waterfront is home to the world-acclaimed Two Oceans Aquarium while Table Mountain and its cable car are about 10 to 15 minutes’ drive from the V & A Waterfront. The Cape Winelands, which produce some of the world’s top wines, are within about 20 to 90 minutes of the Cape Wheel.
