It’s that time of the year again when schooltime is over, the weather is warmer, sunlight hours are longer, work is slowing down and we’re generally eager to get outside and explore.
Table Mountain Cableway will keep the festive spirits alive this December with a number of activities to keep you and the young ones entertained atop Table Mountain.
From now until Sunday January 13, children visiting the Cableway will receive a 20-page activity booklet that includes games, “Did you knows?”, “Things to do at home” and a treasure hunt on the mountain.
While they’re on their treasure hunt, they will come face to face with roaming characters between 11h00 and 13h00 daily from December 24 to January 6 at the top station.
To add a little more festive cheer to your kids’ lives, you can take them to meet Father Christmas and his helpful Christmas Fairy 1 067m above sea level. They will share a sprinkle of Christmas magic with young ones at the Lower and Upper Cable Stations on Monday December 24 and Tuesday December 25. The will be at the Lower Station at 11h00 and at the top station from 12h00 to 13h00.
Once the tummies start to rumble, gather them together and guide them to the Table Mountain Café. Not only does the Café will serve a delicious meals and drinks but it will also serve up a traditional Christmas buffet from December 24 to December 28. So, if you don’t really feel like slaving away in the kitchen or cleaning up copious amounts of dishes, take the tasty and easy way out and have Christmas lunch at Table Mountain Café.
Once the pressies have been opened and the last piece of turkey has been gobbled up, you’ll start wondering what to do on New Year’s Eve. Well, why not bring some bubbly, a picnic basket and a blanket and welcome in the new year atop Table Mountain? Table Mountain Café will extend its operating hours until 24h30 and the last cable car to the summit of Table Mountain on December 31 will depart at 23h00 and descend to the Lower Station at 1h00.
There are loads of things to do on Table Mountain this festive season, so pop around. Remember to buy your tickets online to save time in queues and money.
