October is a month of celebration at the Cableway Company in Cape Town. It marks the 93rd year of taking people to the top of Table Mountain, safety and comfortably. And you are invited to join the celebrations!
“Table Mountain was voted as one of the New7Wonders of Nature almost 10 years ago, something that speaks to how beloved this iconic landmark has become, both locally and internationally. My team and I are proud to be able to offer visitors a 360-degree aerial view of the Mother City when they use the cable cars to get to the top,” says Wahida Parker, managing director of the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway Company (TMACC).
Parker says the month of October is a chance to look back at everything that has been achieved over the past nine decades. It started with a wooden tin-roof cable car that carried 19 people to the top in a 10-minute journey.
The company, she adds, is celebrating a stack of achievements this month.
“Anyone who works in the tourism sector has had a very tough and scary 24 months. This is our first birthday month in two years in which we can really celebrate with the kind of freedom we all enjoyed before the pandemic arrived. We hope everyone will come and pay us a visit so they can see what we’ve been busy with behind the scenes.”
One of the latest additions to the TMACC offering is the launch of the TAP Bar at the lower cableway station, in partnership with the Cape Town-based Newlands Spring. This new brewery experience enhances the cableway’s food and beverage offering for locals looking to spend the day at the mountain. There are other exciting developments underway, which will be launched soon.
A Fast Track path gives you the chance to skip the queue, while the cable car can also be booked for a special private car experience.
A special birthday month ticket package is also available during October, says Parker. “Come and enjoy our birthday with us this month. All South Africans with a valid ID can enjoy a return journey for just R200 (for adults) or R100 (for children). This limited online offer can be used from Monday to Friday.”
Other special packages are also available for pensioners and students, and the popular free return ticket in your birthday calendar month is still available for anyone with a valid SA ID.
