Enjoy a spectacular 360-degree panoramic view of the Mother City from the iconic and vibrant V&A Waterfront on the Cape Wheel.
From a vantage point high in the sky, gorgeous views of Table Mountain, Robben Island, the Cape Town city skyline and local mountains are unveiled. The breath-taking display is enjoyed for four revolutions a ride, lasting about 15 minutes. Two wheelchair-friendly cabins are available, making this an inviting experience for everyone.
The Wheel of Excellence, now also known as the Cape Wheel, was designed by Ronald Bussink and was constructed in Germany in 2007. The wheel, which stands 50 metres high and takes nearly a week to assemble, has travelled around the world, visiting Belgium twice, Germany twice and Sweden from 2009-2010. It first visited Cape Town in 2010 where it was initially meant to remain for only a six-month period during the FIFA World Cup. But since then it has found a permanent home at the V&A Waterfront, the oldest working harbour in Cape Town.
