Just recently, I stood at the base of Platteklip Gorge, a cleft in the rocky face of Table Mountain. My head was filled with a mix of trepidation for the path ahead and a slightly dull ache from the previous evening’s revelries, reminding me of bad decisions and giving hope that this next one would be a vast improvement.
Savour substantial and delectable treats while taking in the view of the city and the harbour from our newly built deck. We have also expanded the kiosk’s menu to include a range of light meals and gourmet coffee.
The overnight snow turned the top of Table Mountain into a winter wonderland this morning, a site not often seen. But when it snows, Capetonians and visitors alike are entranced.
Table Mountain Aerial Cableway Company staff had a blast this morning when they arrived to a winter wonderland. They immediately set to work – building a snowman. Watch this video of our hard-working staff.
We woke up to a winter wonderland this morning – the freezing cold and rainy weather of the past few days had resulted in a blanket of snow on Table Mountain.
With its classic flat-top silhouette, and flanked by Devil’s Peak and Lion’s Head, Table Mountain is one of the world’s most recognisable landmarks. Viewed from the city, the mountain rears up from gentle foothills in a sudden acceleration of altitude, creating dizzy cliffs and deeply scoured ravines. At first glance, it seems that the only possible way up is via the cable car, but there are in fact two well-trodden paths up this iconic north face.
Winter school holidays do not have to be spent indoors. Cape Town is known for having fickle weather ... but locals know that winter mornings may start off dark, but can quickly give way to crisp, clear wind-free days crowned with a startling blue sky – too cold for the beach, but perfect for viewing the city from the top of Table Mountain. Our Kidz Season special is in full swing, with prizes, special meals and the opportunity to have fun while learning about one of the New7Wonders of Nature.
It’s Father’s Day tomorrow, and what better way to spoil your dad, and save some money, than by taking advantage of our Kidz Season and treating him to a trip in the cable car?
Spouses of International Air Transport Association (IATA) leaders were treated to a morning on top of a thickly cloud-shrouded Table Mountain on Tuesday. But the dense cloud and chilly temperatures did not stop the guests from enjoying their tour.
Going up Table Mountain will make any kid high. Guaranteed.
I recently went up with my family and had a picnic at the top, overlooking the beautiful Table Mountain range, towards Cape Point.
It was a highlight of my kids’ trip to Cape Town, in a week of highlights that included penguins at Boulders, beach trips to Muizenberg, Fish Hoek and Noordhoek, the City Sightseeing Bus and the Two Oceans Aquarium.
