Safety is a number one priority at the Table Mountain Cableway. For this reason, the Cableway closes each year for a brief period to allow a team of experienced engineers to inspect the entire operation. This year, the cableway will be closed from Monday 24 July to Sunday 6 August.
The 13th of September is officially known at World Chocolate Day and we have found some of the best spots in Cape Town to celebrate. If you do not have a sweet tooth, then do not fear, chocolate usually goes hand-in-hand with a great cup of coffee! So come and celebrate this day of Coffee Chocolate and Decadence with the Cape Town Big 7!
A trip to the Mother City will not be complete without a visit to each Cape Town Big 7 attractions namely: Table Mountain Cableway, Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden, Robben Island, V&A Waterfront, Cape Point, City Walk and Groot Constantia – represents the perfect combination of dramatic scenic beauty, enthralling history and exhilarating activities that have come to define this beautiful corner of South Africa.
Cape Point is running a fabulous Winter Special where 2 kids, aged 6 – 16, ride the funicular for free with every paying adult. This special was just too good to pass up, and on Friday we took a drive to the Table Mountain National Park for a day out in nature. It was a cold, wintery day and we bundled up with jackets and hats to keep ourselves warm.
Cape Point is open year-round, and each season brings with it a unique charm and spin on this iconic landmark. But it’s no secret that summer is when things really get going, and in recognition of this, Cape Point is celebrating in style.
