Walking around the Victoria & Alfred waterfront, it is impossible to miss the Cape Wheel in the Market Square area. The giant wheel features 30 fully enclosed cabins with air-conditioning that take you on about a 15-minute ride in four loops with 360-degree bird’s-eye views. At the top of the wheel, you’ll be about 120 feet above the ground, and the panoramic views of Cape Town’s city center and harbor, Table Mountain, the Cape Town Stadium in nearby Green Point, and even the Paarl Mountains is stunning on a clear day. The Cape Wheel is also wheelchair accessible, with two specially adapted cabins. The wheel operates daily from 9 am to 7 pm.
