Hollywood actress Shannon Elizabeth visits Cableway
Many celebrities have visted Table Mountain Cableway over the years, and in December, we were honoured to welcome Hollywood star Shannon Elizabeth. She's starred in movies like American Pie, Scary Movie and Jay & Silent Back Strike Back, and she also started a non-proft animal rescue organisation.
She even wrote us a review on Facebook. Here is what she said about her experience:
“My first time up Table Mountain was on a short visit to Cape Town in 2006. Then the last couple of short trips I had to the Cape didn't allow me a chance to visit again. But then, it finally happened. December 20th, 2016 I had a friend in town visiting and we decided we had to go to the top. We were debating if we should hike or climb at first. After getting there and speaking with some people, we opted to take the cable car up and spend our time hiking around the top, admiring the views.”
“But it's way more than that. It's truly magical up there. I can't explain it other than every direction captures the beauty that is Cape Town. All I wanted to do was to sit down and meditate on the serenity and try to never let that moment end.”
“My friend and I stayed up there for a very long time. We absolutely loved it!! The photos you can capture are unbelievable. The people that work there went beyond for us!! In fact, we'd love to send a very special thank you to Wahida, Brent, Lionel & Rieyaan who gave us the absolutely perfect Table Mountain experience. Thank you to all of the workers there who have to deal with so much every day but always put people first, knowing that this can be a once in a lifetime experience that nobody should ever go without.”
“Now for my next challenge. I'm attempting to hike it tomorrow morning with a friend. It will be a minimum 2-hours up and probably an hour down. We're going early, taking lots of water and snack, sunscreen & of course, a camera. I'm up for the challenge now and excited to try this. The reward at the top is beyond worth it.”
“Please don't ever visit Cape Town and leave without going to the top of Table Mountain!!!”
