A ride up our famous cable car is possibly one of the very best ways to experience Cape Town, and yet it’s on the bucket list of many Capetonians, who have yet to experience the thrill. There’s no time like the present to take advantage of the wonderful specials:
- The Sunset Special – a 50% discount on the cost of a regular ticket, meaning adults pay R127.50 per ticket and children pay R62.50. Tickets are only available from 6pm on the day of the ride and from the Lower Cableway Ticket Office, so call ahead to see if the weather is suitable. (This special is available from 1 November to 18 December 2016 and from 4 January to 29 February 2017.)
- The Birthday Special – a free adult return ride for all SA citizens over 18 on the day of your birthday. Don’t forget to bring your ID (to prove it’s your birthday). This ticket is valid for 7 days after your birthday.
- Senior Citizens Special – discounted tickets for those 60 and over (ID required) on Fridays only. Also available for seniors is a meal special from Table Mountain Café. (R100 return; R53 one-way)
