Table Mountain Cable Car Ticket Specials 2018

Table Mountain Cable Car Ticket Specials 2018

Get a year's access to the Cable Car for just R640 (R325 for children)

A ride up our famous cable car is possibly one of the very best ways to experience Cape Town, and yet it’s still 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 listed below:

Ride as often you like for R640

Many locals complain of the steep fare charged to use the cableway. The good news is that Capetonians can now purchase a yearly cable card, which entitles us to use the cableway every day for a year from the date of purchase. You can visit as often as you like, but are limited to one return trip per day. Cost: R640, adults; R325 children; R750 adult and child combo.

Or, take advantage of these super specials

Please note: Specials only apply to South African citizens, so you’ll need your ID number when booking online, and your ID document when purchasing at the gate.

  • Online tickets are valid for seven days from the chosen date (except early-access tickets), and can be refunded during this period.

We recommend that you call the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway on the day you’d like to ride to make sure the weather is playing along. On days with strong winds, all trips are cancelled.
