Table Mountain Cableway announces early-bird special access

Posted on 9 December 2019

Table Mountain Cableway has launched early-access tickets that allow visitors to take the first cable car up at 7:30am – before the site opens to the general public – so that early birds can get up the mountain before it becomes really busy.

The limited tickets are only available for purchase online and are valid between 1 December 2019 and 15 January 2020.

‘For everyone visiting Table Mountain during this period, TMACC is providing an exciting entertainment and activity programme to get everyone in the holiday spirit,’ says Wahida Parker, Managing Director of TMACC.

Local DJ, Hilton Carlse, will keep people entertained at the lower station, accompanied by the Siyabuya Marimba band. Father Christmas and the Fairies will also sleigh up the mountain, making the visitor experience extra special and memorable.

‘Last-minute shoppers are able to purchase local products from our gift shop for Christmas and in the spirit of giving, we will also have twelve days of free giveaways on our social media platforms,’ adds Parker.

Here are a few tips to make the most of your festive season visit to the Table Mountain Cableway:

  • There is high demand for parking during peak season, so visitors are encouraged to use public transport. This includes a free MyCiTi shuttle service operates along Lower Tafelberg Road, between Kloof Nek and the lower cable station.
  • Tickets are cheaper between 1pm and 4pm when the cableway is generally quieter.
  • The Wi-Fi lounge at the upper station on the mountain provides free Wi-Fi for visitors to share their experience with friends and family.
  • Visitors wanting to learn more about Table Mountain can download free audio tours using their mobile phones.
  • Free 30-minute guided walking tours are available between 9am and 3pm daily.
  • Students with valid local or international student cards get a discount.

‘It’s a good idea to pack a small bag with essential items such as water to stay hydrated in the summer heat and sunscreen or a hat for protection, as well as a jacket in case the weather turns,’ concludes Parker.
