Half price romantic trip to the city’s most spectacular sundowner spot

Take your romance to new heights thanks to Table Mountain Aerial Cableway’s Month of Love Sunset Special which runs until Sunday February 28. The Table Mountain Café is also offering a special Valentine’s menu valid from 12 - 18 February 2010.

The Cableway through the ages

As far back as the 1870s, Capetonians had proposed installing some form of transport to get to the top of Table Mountain.

In those days the only way up was on foot, but the outbreak of the Anglo-Boer War in 1899 halted the plans that would see many more people summit the mountain.
