In celebration of Mandela Day, the Cableway and the Table Mountain National Park treated a group of 34 senior women from Noncedo Seniors Club in Masiphumelele, Hout Bay, to a scenic outing on Monday, 18 July 2016.

These elderly women had never visited the Cableway before and were thrilled with the five-minute cable car ride, the breathtaking views and buffet-style dining at our Table Mountain Café.

Social responsibility and ensuring that all South Africans have access to Table Mountain is key to the Cableway’s responsible tourism objectives and we are proud to have contributed to this experience for these seniors.

The Noncedo Seniors Club ladies were awed by their experience:

“Thank you so much to everyone who made this possible! It was my first time and I made some many new friends with international visitors,” said Cynthia Bontsi, a 76-year-old club member.

Nomfanelo Magqashela (73) was apprehensive about travelling on the cable but she enjoyed it so much she told her grandchildren all about it and encouraged them to do it too.

Here are few images of the club’s Mandela Day visit at the Cableway:
